Global Rallycross Championship 2013

I can't see a thread already up for this and, given that some websites are already trickling information out on the schedule for 2013...

http://usracereport.com/2012/11/14/g...races-in-2013/
(thanks to ERC24.com for posting the link on Facebook)

...I thought I would start one! According to the "insider", there will be 9 rounds in 2013, with four known rounds thus far:

18/04/2013 - 21/04/2013 - Foz de Iguaçu, Brazil
09/05/2013 - 12/05/2013 - Barcelona, Spain
27/05/2013 - 30/05/2013 - Munich, Germany on May 27-30
01/08/2013 - 04/08/2013 - Los Angeles, California

These would obviously coincide with the "Global" X-Games events in those countries.

Any idea when we can expect to hear further news on the 2013 GRC?

If GRX is to run at Aspen, mid November seems very late to announce it.

GRC in Winter X Games was no question – so far...
Although it would be nice to have something like the Andros Trophy...

Not according to the driver I talked to this week. He said it's Brazil, Spain, Germany, Los Angeles. That was my "insider," if you will.

Continuing with the "inside" information, the investment group leader is a man named Colin Dyne. http://usracereport.com/2012/11/16/g...ader-revealed/ Dyne is the CEO of William Rast (sponsored Dan Wheldon in the 2011 Indy 500) and his son Austin is a race driver, so he knows his way around motorsports.

My speculation is that if they did Aspen there would be too large of a gap between rounds in the season, and after 2012, they don't want that. Am currently working on a full projected schedule and silly season chart to be posted intermittently with our 2012 season reviews.

No event in Aspen in 2012. First event is in Brazil.

Been looking at the potential/rumored race dates for 2013. The most likely ones all seem to be clear of clashes with the ERC. Very possible for Foust, Doran, etc. to contend for both championships next year were they to have the funding.

Anyone want a 2011 GRC Hyundai Veloster?...

https://rhys-millen-racing.myshopify.../cars-for-sale

...any idea as to what the plans are for RMR in 2013? I assume they are looking for another manufacturer?

Perhaps they needed all-new chassis and drivetrain rather than yet more rebuilds.

From what I gather RMR is looking for another manufacturer since Hyundai chose to end that deal. Am wondering if they may be one of the teams building a privateer vehicle—we've heard rumors of Chevys, Hondas, Scions, and a Mini. I have no confirmation of this but I'm guessing RMR might want the Volkswagen deal, or if Ford shifts its WRC money, that deal. Don't expect Rhys to field two cars again though without manufacturer support.

Also, for those who haven't seen it: http://www.racer.com/insight-global-...rticle/270540/

The schedule that Brian Gale is suggesting could be very interesting, especially if they put on a beach race in Florida. (Maybe alongside the rumored St. Petersburg race in the neighboring town of St. Pete Beach.) Street races from July on for IndyCar include Baltimore and the doubleheader at Houston.

Certainly a more eclectic mix of tracks in 2013. I thought the SEMA layout was a lot more interesting, so it should be good if this is the sort of layouts they are looking at next year.
