Default Global Rallycross 2012 Final: SEMA

Watch the video!

The final round of the Global Rally Championship was held in Las Vegas during the SEMA Show on Tuesday, October 30. Where most of the 2012 GRC events were held at super speedways, with metal ramps, this installment had the course back to a mostly dirt format with a massive 70-foot gap jump.

The event was a challenging one for the Subaru Rally Team USA with all the cars battling not just the other teams but mechanical issues during the course of the race. On the first day, Dave Mirra's STI was damaged in competition causing a drive shaft to sever a steering line - resulting in a massive fireball and putting the car out of commission for the duration of the round. Both Sverre Isachsen and Bucky Lasek had engine troubles.

In the event Final, Ken Block's Ford Fiesta caught fire while tussling with fellow Ford driver Tanner Foust for the lead (note: both were former Subaru drivers in the Rally America series). A quick re-start cemented Foust's dominance, handing him both the win (followed by Deegan [Ford] and Millen [Hyundai]) and the overall series championship.

Subaru final positions: Dave Mirra #6, Bucky Lasek #7, Pat Moro #13

Privateer Jimmy Keeny (Subaru) was injured when his car crashed during jump practice. He is expected to make a full recovery.
