Hmm, the only interesting place is the 'US military base.' Wonder which one they use? Here, maybe? (Though it isn't a current base.)

Looks like some of these events clash with the RX calendar.

El Toro was my first thought as well, especially given Block's history with the place.

The X Games is missing. Is ESPN replacing rallycross for pickup trucks?

New York and Charlotte is out too. It seems that Daytona is the only oval left.

New are Tampa / St Pete and Detroit.

Well nothing close enough to put it on the attendance schedule.
TV only for me this year.

GRC are doing X games as an invitational event with no points. http://www.redbullglobalrallycross.c...s-austin-2015/

I guess that NBC might have disagreed with the X Games being a championship round.

Nothing to do with NBC. With so many one-off entries at X Games and a 12-race schedule regardless, it doesn't make sense for what is essentially an all-star event to be scored for points.

RE: the continued cynicism around the word "global." It should be noted that GRC was the first rallycross series to contest a proper "global" championship with rounds in South America, Europe, and North America in 2013.

I don't want to be rude but it wasn't "global" before that and it hasn't been after either. Sure it was the first rallycross championship to be around the world but that does not matter if it isn't "global" now

Well us Yanks still buy cars and unless/until WRX puts a round south of Canada and north of Panama (and/or Citroen starts selling cars here) I think there'll be plenty of room for both series.

I'm quite curious as to where the military base will be. Somewhere in the Carolinas, perhaps, since they're not running Charlotte this year? The way the calendar's basically split into an eastern and western swing I don't imagine they'd go from Daytona to El Toro to Detroit--but I guess we won't know til we get that far...

Subaru announced their drivers.

Not really a surprise- http://andrettiautosport.com/news/?p=4823#.VN0TiPmsX7I

I can't wait to see how the Beetles do this year in their first full season.

It still amazes me how quick these cars are- 0-60 in 2.1 seconds is insane.

Good to see more yellow. I find black cars boring.
