LOS ANGELES – Global Rallycross (GRC) has confirmed its 2013 schedule will total nine rounds, including races on three different continents in conjunction with Global X Games events in Foz do Iguacu (Brazil), Barcelona (Spain) and Munich (Germany).

As one of the fastest growing forms of motorsport, rallycross combines the best aspects of circuit racing, off-road racing and rally competition.

The series is made up of four Global X Games events and five GRC events to total nine rounds that will culminate in the crowning of both a driver’s champion and manufacturer’s champion.

The series has already contested one round of racing, with current NASCAR driver and former Formula One competitor Scott Speed winning the opening round in Brazil.

The second event scheduled in 2013 was to be held in Spain in May, but heavy rains forced the cancellation of the event. The series has scheduled a make-up date in conjunction with an event in Germany for June 29-30.
