Bookmark and Share
Scott Speed (USA) of the Andretti Autosport team has made a strong start to the Global Rallycross season. The former Formula One and NASCAR driver triumphed at the wheel of the Volkswagen Polo RX in Barbados, coming home ahead of Steve Arpin (CAN) and Brian Deegan (USA, both Ford). “What a fantastic weekend,” said the delighted 2013 X Games winner. “We had the right pace from start. The team did an amazing job right from the word go and set the car up perfectly for the race.” Speed’s team-mate Tanner Foust (USA) finished eleventh in the second Volkswagen Polo RX. The next round of the Global Rallycross season takes place in Austin, Texas (USA), on 07 June.

Volkswagen Fun Cup Great Britain
Racelogic benefits from the favourites’ misfortune to triumph in Snetterton

The 2013 champions showed in Snetterton (GB) that they are once again a force to be reckoned with in 2014. After over six hours of racing, the Racelogic Golf was the first car across the finish line, underlining its impressive display with not only the fastest race lap, but also a new lap record at the circuit in Snetterton. Second place went to JPR Evolution, followed in third by Team OBR. The winners of the season-opener failed to live up to their billing as favourites: Team Honeywell’s Golf was involved in a collision early on in the race. A resulting pit stop saw them drop back to last place. The crowds then saw the lead change on numerous occasions over the next few hours. The Racelogic team first moved to the head of the field at the start of the third our, and held onto first place from thereon in.

Volkswagen Scirocco R-Cup
“Rookie” Kremer celebrates in the rain in Oschersleben

Newcomer Jason Kremer (D) produced an impressive performance in Oschersleben (DE) to win race two of the weekend in the Volkswagen Scirocco R-Cup, coming home three seconds ahead of his closest rival Jordan Lee Pepper (ZA). In difficult conditions, thanks to the onset of rain, Kremer finally managed to bring Pepper’s winning run to an end in the second race. The South African had previously become the first driver in the history of the Volkswagen Scirocco R-Cup to win the first three races of the season. Third place in Oschersleben went to Denmark’s Nicolaj Møller Madsen. Pepper now leads the overall standings with 117 points, ahead of Kremer (97). The winner of Sunday’s race picked up the maximum 50 points for the first time. Only half points had been awarded in the first three races of the year.
