The Global Rallycross Championship has released their track layout for its season finale at this year’s SEMA Show on October 30, as well as an interesting 16-car entry list to go along with it.

The exceptionally tight layout is perhaps the most similar to a proper European rallycross layout that we’ve seen all season, featuring a significant amount of dirt as well as a “whoops” section of water and dirt. The gap jump will, once again, cross over the shortcut, which this time will be comprised entirely of dirt. The staging area is set off course, much like on a motocross track, while the small long jump will send drivers over the start-finish line.

The entry list reads as follows:

  • Timur Timerzyanov, #3 Ford, Olsbergs MSE
  • Sverre Isachsen, #11 Subaru, Subaru PUMA Rallycross Team
  • Stephan Verdier, #12 Hyundai, Rhys Millen Racing
  • David Binks, #17 Ford, Olsbergs MSE
  • Liam Doran, #33 Citroen, Doran Motorsport
  • Tanner Foust, #34 Ford, Olsbergs MSE
  • Brian Deegan, #38 Ford, Olsbergs MSE
  • Dave Mirra, #40 Subaru, Subaru PUMA Rallycross Team
  • Ken Block, #43 Ford, Monster World Rally Team
  • Toomas Heikkinen, #57 Ford, Olsbergs MSE
  • Pat Moro, #59 Subaru, PMR Motorsports
  • Rhys Millen, #67 Hyundai, Rhys Millen Racing
  • Samuel Hubinette, #77 Saab, Eklund Motorsport
  • Bucky Lasek, #81 Subaru, Subaru PUMA Rallycross Team
  • Bryce Menzies, #99 Dodge, Pastrana199 Racing
  • Jimmy Keeney, #418 Subaru, Michael Crawford Motorsport

Timerzyanov makes his season debut after dominating this year’s European Rallycross Championship, while Keeney makes his first start since Texas and Menzies returns after making his rallycross debut at X Games. After his accident and subsequent back injury in Las Vegas, Richard Burton will not compete in this round.

Interestingly enough, Travis Pastrana’s name is not on the entry list for the season finale at SEMA, with no explanation given for the omission. It’s unknown whether Pastrana will field two cars as he did in Texas and X Games, or continue with only a single car as in Charlotte, New Hampshire, and Las Vegas.

Fans looking to buy tickets can read the series’ FAQ page for more information on the event.
