Red Bull GRC Unveils Season-Opening Memphis Course Layout
Red Bull Global Rallycross will take to a brand new course layout at Memphis International Raceway on April 28-29 for the opening event of the series’ 2017 season. At 1.18 miles, the track will host one of the longest and fastest courses in Red Bull GRC history.
The Red Bull GRC Memphis layout will be built into MIR’s .75-mile oval. Drivers will take to the grid at the start-finish line, launching from 0 to 60 in 1.9 seconds directly in front of the fans on site. Continuing around oval Turns 1 and 2, drivers will take a hard left off of the backstretch into the dirt section, which includes multiple turns and the series’ signature 70-foot jump.
Returning to pavement, drivers will charge up the pit lane towards a complex paved section that includes multiple left-right combinations. Also included in this section is the Joker Lap, a shortcut that will allow drivers to avoid the complex corners once per race session. The rhythm section rejoins the course in oval Turn 4 to complete the circuit.
