Red Bull GRC founder and COO Chip Pankow launched the series in 2010 and took over course design in 2013. "I try to draw on my experiences as a driver and also an organizer, making sure that we have an awesome track for the drivers and a great experience for spectators," he says.
"Venues depend on many factors, and you have to weigh each of those," says Pankow. When making a decision, Red Bull GRC considers such criteria as physical space, amount of pavement and dirt, parking, location, proximity to major markets, scenery, paddock area and fan access. "The priority is on what area will make for the best track, and then all of the other [considerations] are factored in," he says.
"We want an entrance that flows naturally and doesn't upset the cars on the non-joker line," says Pankow.
"We try whenever possible to make sure they can see all of the circuit," says Pankow.
Pankow and team use highly specialized motorsports materials, which are transported around the country for each race. Dirt, however, is sourced locally. The dedicated, world-class team of professionals travels to each event to ensure seamless course build.
The group of six track builders, three Armco fencing specialists, four structure specialists and four branding experts begins its work about a week before the race weekend. "We start by surveying the entire venue and marking where everything [will be] placed," says Pankow.
"I like to think of it as one big course since they have to flow together and work as a complete unit," says Pankow. "The physicality of a venue helps determine some element placements, but [placement] also has to do with a variety of other factors, including track length and percentage of dirt. Dirt placement, he says, must make sense in relation to the spectator areas, and tarmac/dirt transitions must be placed so that they don't dust up too much.
As Red Bull Global Rallycross emerges as one of America's best motorsport leagues, courses that challenge drivers and welcome spectators are a key to success. "The idea behind rallycross is non-stop action," says Pankow.
