Here is a teaser of some of the action you will see when you tune in to ESPN on Saturday at 4:30 p.m. est. The excitement of the Global RallyCross Championship returns to television with the DiRT 3 Global RallyCross Championship: Twin Peaks, presented by Best Buy. I was there and I can honestly say, it was one of the best motorsports events I have ever been to!
The Global RallyCross Twin Peaks event took place Dirtfish Rally School, the Old Mill Adventure Park in Snoqualmie, WA.
The Saturday broadcast features drivers from the top ranks of action sports and rallycross in the United States and Europe as they take on a second-round battle for the inaugural Global RallyCross Championship title – and a chance to earn an invitation to X Games 17 Rally competitions held in downtown Los Angeles this summer.
Top drivers including Tanner Foust, BMX and rally pro Dave Mirra, and Formula DRIFT drivers Rhys Millen and Stephan Verdier tear it up on the inventive industrial course near Seattle. Action includes a huge gap jump where cars fly 70-feet through the air – a feature seen only at X Games and Global RallyCross competition – and racing through an industrial warehouse, with the sound of high-power engines ricocheting off the walls.
The show will be rebroadcast Saturday evening at 9:30 p.m. Eastern on ESPN2.
