News Tanner Foust Moving To European Rallycross Championship for 2010



Tanner Foust has about the most solid "car guy" curriculum vitae there is. Drift king, stuntman, rally champ, X Games legend, TV star, momentary Top Gear USA host, two-time U.S. representative for the International Race of Champions and of most important/impressive, Autoblog Podcaster. Well friends, let's go ahead and add Rallycross participant to Tanner's already padded resume.

When/Where/Why? Foust will be competing in the 2010 European Rallycross Championship as the sole American representative. Tanner will be traveling to Europe for the first four races before returning to the United States and bringing the races with him.

For those unfamiliar with the discipline, rallycross is similar to rally racing, only the cars are typically 50 percent more powerful (600 horsepower as opposed to 400 hp) and the quick stages consist of dirt, jumps and tarmac. Tanner will of course be driving the same 600 hp devil of a Ford Fiesta he took to a bronze medal at last year's X Games.

Says Foust, "I've been watching European-style Rally Cross for years. I love the combination of dirt, pavement, jumps and door-to-door action it's like a real-life videogame. I'm really excited to be on the leading edge of this discipline as it grows in the U.S. It's been popular in Europe for years the fans here are going to love it." We're fully in agreement with Tanner on that last bit. When it comes to Rallycross, there's very little not to love.

If anyone knows how, let me know please. And yeah, I already know about the "underground" place and the "fish" one.

Becoming more and more a Tanner Foust fan.

TOP FINISH FOR TANNER IN UK EUROPEAN RALLYCROSS ROUND
Written by Scott CourseyLatest News, Rally AmericaJun 2, 2010



LONDON, UK (Tanner Foust Racing) – Rockstar Energy driver Tanner Foust battled through a tough field to advance to the final heat at the UK round of the European Rallycross Championship this weekend at the Lydden Hill Circuit.
“The racing in England this weekend was incredible,” said Foust. “Rallycross is an unbelievably tough sport with lots of contact and aggression on the track; it’s like the coolest video game ever.”
Battling against more than 30 entries in the hotly contested Division 1, the driver fought his way into the final heat of six cars. Foust was set to race against the best in the sport – including defending champion Sverre Isachsen, from Norway, local hero Liam Doran and Belgian rally star Francois Duval. But a driveshaft failure at the start line of the heat left Foust unable to fight for the overall win. He finished in sixth-place overall.
It was a strong result for the series newcomer, who had said he was pleased to earn a spot in the A Final in only his second European Rallycross Championship race.
“The mechanical failure was a disappointment, but getting to the A Final was a huge achievement for me and the team,” said Foust. “I learned a lot, and I’m getting more competitive with every heat.”
The versatile driver is the first American to compete in the FIA European Rallycross Championship. He had a successful debut in his latest motorsport discipline earlier this month with an eighth-place finish in Portugal.
Foust is scheduled to contest five European Rallycross events this season in a 600-horsepower, all-wheel drive Rockstar Energy Rallycross Ford Fiesta prepared by champion Andreas Eriksson’s Olsbergs MSE Ford team.
He got his first feel for the vehicle at X Games in 2009 when he drove one of the team cars to a bronze medal. This summer’s X Games contest in Los Angeles will feature an American version of the rallycross discipline, known as SuperRally.
The driver is a two-time Formula Drift champion and X Games Rally gold medalist who has twice represented Team USA at the international Race of Champions.
The sport is a blend of circuit racing, off-road racing and rally competition. It promises intense crowd-pleasing action in a fan-friendly track environment. Six drivers line up to start at once, piloting high-horsepower compact cars through race traffic over a challenging short course that features jumps, unbanked turns, hills and transitions between pavement and gravel.
