The British rounds moves from the historic and iconic Lydden Hill, where rallycross was invented in 1967. Instead there’s a big-money move to a purpose-built track on the infield of Silverstone as part of a larger festival. But fear not UK fans – check out the GRC schedule below!

The other change is the addition of a new US round at COTA.

Everything else is very stable with perhaps a date shuffle but no other big changes.

Blog post updated 13 February:

There’s new crossover between FIA World RX and Red Bull GRC as they will race on each others’ turf this year, both then justifying their World / Global tags. Though no doubt confusing many in the process!

The Memphis and Thompson rounds are no more.

Indianapolis becomes a double-header.

A new double-header takes places in May, yet to be confirmed. There’s a new single round near New Orleans.

And a new double-header will close the season at the birthplace of rallycross, Lydden Hill in England, which will have GRC’s 70ft ramp fitted for the first time!

  1. Ahh I knew the tradition would hold out eventually! Just a day after adding these series, Red Bull GRC announces their season finale TBA will be a double-header at Lydden Hill! So now both ‘World’ and ‘Global’ flavours will race in Europe and North America.
