Red Bull sponsored the 1st Rally Cross event for Detroit on Belle Isle the summer of 2015.  Small cars (VW Beetle, Ford Focus) are beefed up with lots of horsepower!  They run on a small obstacle course type track that is 80% asphalt & 20% dirt.  There is a large jump so they can go air borne.  The races are short 6 to 10 lap sprints.  The was a “joker turn” around the fountain that could be used as a short cut once during the race!  It added strategy to the race on when to take the joker!
