    Jumping into a brand new racing series halfway through its inaugural season isn’t an ideal situation. It requires a driver to not only adjust to a new car, but to also establish their skills against competitors with much more experience. Those were the challenges that Tyler Benson faced in his GRC Lites debut at Atlanta […]

    The Turkish-based Avitas Motorsport outfit played an integral part in the development of the GRC Lites concept, working hand in hand with OlsbergsMSE to perfect the 300-horsepower rallycross machine. Helpful in that process was the fact that Halid Avdagic, Avitas’ Business Unit Director, is a racer himself, having competed in numerous stage rallies across the […]

    The inaugural GRC Lites season featured an incredibly diverse field, from rising European rallycross stars to road-racing veterans. Count Geoff Sykes among the latter category; a veteran of BMW club racing, Sykes looked to adapt his pavement racing skills to dirt in 2013.

    It’s not a surprise that Alexander Westlund finished fifth in the inaugural GRC Lites season: the driver of the #55 posted an average start of 5.66 and an average finish of 5.17 in the six-race schedule. It wasn’t a bad season by any means; Westlund was a consistent driver who usually kept out of trouble […]

    Being the son of Andreas Eriksson, team principal of OlsbergsMSE and developer of the GRC Lites car, offered Kevin Eriksson both advantages and disadvantages in the inaugural Lites season. On one hand, he would be as well equipped as any driver in the series, driving the very first Lites car built by OMSE; on the […]

    At only 15 years old at the start of the inaugural GRC Lites season, Mitchell deJong was still one of the biggest names to join the series in 2013. Having won nine championships in the previous six years, including the previous year’s TORC Pro Buggy title, few drivers could match deJong’s previous racing successes, and […]

    It’s true that nobody really had an answer for Joni Wiman in the inaugural GRC Lites season. But if any driver had a chance to pull off an upset, it was Sebastian Eriksson. Eriksson, who drives for OlsbergsMSE but is of no relation to team principal Andreas Eriksson (or fellow GRC Lites competitor Kevin Eriksson), […]
