GRC Insider: Top ERC Drivers Dominate SEMA Entry List

This week’s Global Rallycross Championship season finale at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas will feature one of the most diverse and interesting fields of the season, even without the star power of Marcus Gronholm and Travis Pastrana.

Why? For the only time this season, the entire top three of the European Rallycross Championship will compete in a GRC event.

Fans are well-acquainted with third place Tanner Foust, who leads the GRC championship with 72 points and one win in five starts thus far. He and Olsbergs MSE teammate Brian Deegan are the only drivers currently eligible to win the GRC title; Foust can clinch the championship with a finish of second place or better regardless of what Deegan does.

Liam Doran ran the majority of both schedules as well, but chose to make the ERC his focus and was thus able to beat Foust by two points for second in the championship. Doran is coming off of a season-ending victory in Germany with his Citroen DS3, his fourth podium finish of the season and first major victory since taking gold in the 2011 X Games.

The only new face among these three drivers is the ERC champion, Timur Timerzyanov, who will replace Gronholm in an Olsbergs MSE Ford Fiesta alongside rival Foust. Timerzyanov scored an incredible four wins in a row in the second half of the ERC season, tallying six overall, and beat Doran by 44 points for the championship despite missing the season-opening round at Lydden Hill.

They’re not the only drivers with a successful ERC background in the field, however. Sverre Isachsen won three consecutive championships from 2009 to 2011 before joining the Subaru PUMA Rallycross team. Meanwhile, Toomas Heikkinen finished sixth in last year’s championship while driving for Per Eklund before joining Olsbergs MSE this year.
