Rallycross with TG USA host Tanner Foust
Ollie Marriage straps himself into the TG USA presenter’s 550bhp Ford Fiesta

Typically enough, the Americans have set up something called Global RallyCross (GRC), the plan being to piggyback rounds with NASCAR races. But GRC is still in its early days, so the best place to learn the craft is Europe. Hence Tanner.
He's the only American thing around here, though. The car is built and run by Swedish company Olsbergs MSE, long-time Rallycross experts and the firm who built Ken Block's Gymkhana Fiesta. It's run in the most hands-on way possible by Andrèas Eriksson, an ex-Rallycrosser himself, and is staffed by lads who look like they should be hanging out at a skatepark, not able to change a centre differential in 15 minutes flat.
