Global Rallycross racing is one of the most exciting race formats to watch – short, intense qualifying heats, lots of contact, and there is always one big ramp jump built into the course. When Emme Hall was asked if she wanted a ride with Tanner Foust, driver of the No. 34 Rockstar Energy Drink Volkswagen Beetle GRC fielded by the Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross team, there was no way to contain her excitement.
Foust drives a VW Beetle specially prepared for the Red Bull Global Rallycross (GRC) series. The 2.0-liter turbocharged motor sends 540 horsepower to all four wheels and it has approximately 12 inches of suspension travel. Zero to sixty mph happens in 1.9 seconds, a lot faster than anyone can chug a Rockstar Energy Drink.
