Event 2 – Twin Peaks

The second stop in the 2011 Global RallyCross Championship – Twin Peaks – takes place April 15-16 at the Old Mill Adventure Park in Snoqualmie, WA. The venue is the site of a former Weyhauser paper mill built in 1910 and retains many of the historic buildings including the 500 foot long “planer” building through which Global RallyCross competitors will race. Once again the Global RallyCross track will feature the signature 70 foot gap jump for All Wheel Drive cars.

Tanner Foust scored victory in front of a sell-out crowd at the Global RallyCross Championship on Saturday, after an action-packed two days of door-to-door racing at the Twin Peaks round.

Thousands of fans packed into the century-old Old Mill industrial complex near Seattle this Friday and Saturday for DiRT 3 Global RallyCross Championship:Twin Peaks, presented by Best Buy.

Foust piloted his Rockstar Energy Drink Ford Fiesta to the win in an all-star, six-car, all-wheel drive final that had the crowd up on their feet and cheering during close calls, multi-car jumps, and narrow passes.

In the Saturday all-wheel drive final, Foust’s teammate Andreas Eriksson was strong off the line in his Best Buy Ford Fiesta, and he was looking good for first place until he tagged the wall of the warehouse entrance and flattened a tire. Struggling to keep his car under control, Eriksson dropped back two positions to finish third, behind Swedish rallycross veteran Michael Jernberg in his Skoda Fabia.

In Friday’s head-to-head SuperRally competition, Eriksson took the win, while Foust finished in second place and Stephan Verdier drove his Crawford Performance STI into third-place overall.

In two-wheel drive, Saturday’s RallyCross competition saw Swedish driver Mikael Eriksson take his second class win of the weekend after a battle with Matthew “Mr. Spectacular” Johnson in his Nitro Circus Mazda RX8. Johnson finished second, while Dillon Van Way pushed his Ford Focus ahead of scrappy local driver Cody Crane’s Honda CRX for third.
