Confirmed for OMSE’s 2015 GRC Lites team are young American Austin Cindric and Swede Oliver Eriksson.
“Even when you’re watching rallycross, you’re having fun,” said 16 y/o Cindric about returning to the Lites series in 2015. He campaigned a partial season last year that saw him score three podium results to finish sixth in the overall standings. “Sliding through the dirt, knocking each other around, standing starts… It’s a combination for a good time.”
Oliver Eriksson was just 15 when he joined the series for two stops last season. The youngest driver in the field, he scored fourth- and third-place results. He said he’s looking forward to making a push for the championship in 2015.
“Lites is the best school for future Supercar stars and it’s awesome to be part of the future of motorsport,” said Eriksson, who will also pilot a Lites machine at home in the RallyX Scandinavia Lites series. “Lites prepares you on every level.”
Their first race is scheduled for May 31st in Fort Lauderdale. For tickets go to: http://www.redbullglobalrallycross.com/events/2015-season/ft-lauderdale-fl/
