X Games adds SuperRally to lineup

ESPN Action Sports

ESPN will add the discipline of SuperRally to its sports lineup this summer and has announced the first wave of invited athletes for the 16th annual action sports competition to be held in Los Angeles July 29 - Aug. 1, 2010. SuperRally will join the discipline of Rally Car Racing, already in its fifth year at X Games, on Saturday night of the four-day event at the Los Angeles Coliseum.

The new SuperRally event takes on the ever popular Euro-centric sport of Rallycross in a sprint style form of auto racing that features heats of four drivers racing wheel-to-wheel on a dirt track. The field will consist of 12 drivers who will complete a time trial session to determine the starting grid in the three, four-lap, Elimination heat races. The winner of the Elimination heats and the highest seeded driver who has not yet advanced will compete in a four-lap last chance qualifier (LCQ). The winner of the LCQ will join the winners of the Elimination heat races in the five-lap final race.

"SuperRally is a perfect fit for X Games and will bring all of the most extreme parts of motorsports into one event," said three-time X Games Rally medalist Tanner Foust. "There's door-to-door racing, sliding off road, jumps and the cars can do 0-60 mph in less than 2.5 seconds! These are some of the fastest production-based racecars on the planet, and the thought of ripping them around the iconic columns of the Los Angeles Coliseum is simply over the top -- again, perfect for X Games.

So rallycross will form part of X-Games this year? Interesting, I was expecting to see it replace the current X-Games rally format in the next year or two, rather then having both formats running together.

Looking forward to seeing X-Games now!

Wow, that's cool!

The X Games Rally Car Racing discipline is is held in a super special stage rather than true road stages, right?

Yeah, it is now. It was run as eight gravel stages with an ninth road stage in and around the Home Depot centre the first year rally appeared at X-Games (2006 - X-Games 12) but, as Rich_Cooper says, its been a Special Stage format every subsequent year.

Brillant! Bad enough with the USA calling Rallying, Rallying Racing (for which they should be thrown off the top of the Col de Turini).

Now the plan is rob from WRC. Hope the WRC have trade marked Super Rally.

Some call it rally racing, which is fine by me.

To throw us off Col de Turini, first you have to get us over there and second you have to be able to pick us up to toss us over which on our diet of Outback Steakhouse and Cracker Barrel is not bloody likely.

I give credit to Rally America and the X Games for trying some new things and I think they are working. There is a demand out there for exciting motorsport for those fans that haven't been brainwashed by nascar and I think rally could foot the bill.

The WRC could be making an appearance over here soon.

We call Rally er Rally.....as in Rally America; NASA Rally Sport and US Rally Championship.

The SCCA own "rallycross" in the USA so we couldn't use that name. However, it was ESPN that named the X-Games component and before you moan about them if you think long-term, just imagine what ESPN can do for the sport as a whole.

We are looking forward to being at Lydden and identifying what we have missed in our plans for NJMP in August.

Will do. Our COC/Chief Steward (Mike Hurst) would probably love to spend time and bend your ear. His biggest concern right now is from service tents, through dummy grid to start grid. Also some questions re laser beams or underground sensors for jump starts, etc.
We are at the track early Sunday morning as doing some press stuff with Tim but if you are around would love to see you and let Mike loose on you before the day starts in earnest for you.
The RA guys coming are from Minnesota and are very mid-Western American nice! Both avid rally guys and totally passionate about the sport and have done wonders with Rally America. They really want to see Rallycross work over here so insights from people like you would be great.

Thanks, Mark
