GRC at SEMA

This year's final Global RallyCross event was held in conjunction with SEMA and that's where Tanner Foust secured his second championship season.

Setup in the Silver Parking lot of the Las Vegas Convention Center, the somewhat tight layout featured the optional 70-foot jump built from 10,000 tons of dirt.

Organization of the event was somewhat sloppy at times, but all was set to go by the eight lap final race that determined the champion.

Almost all the cars use rear-mounted coolant radiators to run massive inter-coolers up front. Despite a restrictor plate, many of the GRC entrants have 600+ horsepower and can reach 60 mph in two seconds.

Our gallery of GRC at SEMA features almost all the cars running at Las Vegas including the Hyundai/RMR team which was racing for the last time.
