On September 26 and 27, Revvolution watched a star-studded group of drivers battle at the Red Bull Global Rallycross Seattle. Round 9 was the penultimate race of the 2014 season, and it was Sverre Isachsen who took his—and Subaru’s—first win after Ken Block and Tanner Foust collided. Isachsen, a three-time European rallycross champion, capitalized on the on-track mayhem to take the lead on the first lap, then held on for all 10 laps to take the trophy and fifth place in the points. The win came at the perfect time for Subaru, as it has a large and dedicated granola-eating fan base in the Pacific Northwest. Olsbergs MSE’s Joni Wiman came in a very close second and Rockstar Energy Drink’s Brian Deegan took third, coming in at a jolting 12 seconds back.
There are some roads that are legends in the motoring community—a bucket list for petrol heads, tuners and anyone with even a whiff of automotive fanaticism in their thick, black and oily blood.
Assume you’re the kind of car guy with a few million lying around. Would you enter a rally that promises very little sleep, less food and a 3,000-mile trip with 10 to 20 hours of driving a day, and a stiff 70 grand entry fee?
Check out the highlights of some great competitors from Colorado who’d decided to compete at this year’s Drag Week.
Drag Week had always been a time-trial event, seeing who can get the fastest ET time. It was more of a race against the clock than other competitors . This year, though, HOT ROD decided to make things a little bit more exciting, a little bit more heated and a lot a bit more competitive.
