In other news: Sebastien Loeb wins X Games round of GRC
Global RallyCross Championship’s third round just ended few minutes ago with a superb and highly expected victory by none other than Sebastien Loeb. Driving a Hansen Motorsport prepared Citroën DS3 XL, Loeb took commanding victory in just about every heat and race he took part and same thing happened in the final 6 lap race.
After the unfortunate accident Marcus Grönholm ended up in hospital earlier today, so the job was made that much easier to Loeb, although I am not actually saying any of the drivers who competed in the finals are actually (that) bad. They’re simply not Sebastien Loeb.
Ken Block ended the finals in second place after great start and early chase he gave to Loeb. However, crafty American lacked some luck – with a puncture he was able to hold on to silver, but Loeb was just out of reach as he won with the advantage as big as Texas, and then some. P3 went to another allrounder, Brian Deegan.
Global RallyCross should really be a bit more accesible via TV, if by “Global” they mean global, and tracks don’t neccesarily need to have those iffy jumps and trick laps and whatnot. Line them up and put them on a track such as Brands Hatch rallycross – that should be challenging enough!
As for Sebastien Loeb and the World Rally Championship – he should send formal (and video) invitation to all X Games GRC round finalists to take part in one of the WRC events this year.
