VW takes Global Rallycross wins in L.A.

Two wins for the Volkswagen Beetle in Los Angeles
September 14, 2015

Double success at the double-header – Scott Speed (USA) won both Red Bull Global Rallycross events in Los Angeles (USA) with the Volkswagen Beetle GRC. Speed’s teammate at Andretti Motorsport – Tanner Foust (USA) – finished second and third to round off a successful weekend for the team. “It has been a fantastic weekend,” said Speed. “Obviously at the beginning of the season we struggled a bit, but with a new program like this you're bound to have problems and we have had them. I think our Beetles are dialed in, they are fast and durable, so I see us as a major threat for the championship.” The brace of wins allowed Speed to climb two positions into second place in the Drivers’ Championship. These were the ex-Formula One driver’s first two victories with the Volkswagen Beetle GRC. Four-times X Games gold medallist Foust had previously claimed the maiden win with the 560-hp four-wheel drive powerhouse back in mid-June. The event was held at the Port of Los Angeles in San Pedro, CA. The next round will take place in Barbados on October 3rd.
