If you like videos of 600-horsepower rallycross Supercars (and we bet you do), behind-the-scenes shop tours (likewise), and/or an inside look at the biggest names in Red Bull Global Rallycross (why wouldn't you?), you're going to love this post a whole lot.
That's because we've got some incredible video content in store for you, with offerings from two of the series' most prominent race teams on tap. They should be just enough to hold you over before our dual broadcasts of Red Bull Global Rallycross Los Angeles, which air LIVE on Saturday and Sunday at 5PM ET on your local NBC affiliate. Check them out and enjoy!
The Triumphant Return of Subaru's "Launch Control"
The thrilling "Launch Control" video series, now in its second year, gives race fans an unprecedented, all-access look at the trials and tribulations of Subaru Rally Team USA. Perhaps the most famous and beloved team in North America, its drivers, Sverre Isachsen, Bucky Lasek, David Higgins, and Travis Pastrana are fan favorites wherever they race.
The series picks up just before Red Bull GRC Charlotte, with a look inside the Vermont SportsCar shop where the cars are prepares, and a behind the scenes look at Isachsen and Lasek's experience at The Dirt Track at Charlotte. Both drivers earned heat victories—Lasek taking the first of his career—but as our fans know, victory is anything but a given on any given weekend.
This Is Where Championship-Winning Red Bull Global Rallycross Cars Come From
Olsbergs MSE have set the gold standard for excellence in the first three years of Red Bull Global Rallycross' history, winning back-to-back-to-back drivers' championships, leading Ford to multiple manufacturers' titles, and even developing the spec vehicle used in GRC Lites competition.
All that firepower has to come from somewhere. For OMSE, that "somewhere" is a robust race shop in Nynashamn, Sweden, where Andreas Eriksson and his team of mechanics develop the cars that set the standard for Red Bull GRC excellence. There's no telling what Eriksson has up his sleeve next, but if the past is any indication, it'll be hard to beat.
