This past weekend world renown drifter and stunt driver, Tanner Foust, proved he belonged in European Rally with a dominating victory in his Rockstar Energy Ford Fiesta at the Pista Automóvel de Montalegre event, which is a stop on the FIA European Rallycross Championship.
“Simply incredible!” said Foust, who earned his victory in front of a sell-out crowd at the race. “The team showed its potential this weekend, finishing one-two.”
The Ford Fiestas of Foust and teammate, Andreas Eriksson, were the two to beat, and rightly started the final race one and two, and finished the same way.
With this win, Foust became the first American to ever win an FIA European Rallycross Championship round.
After last year’s part time stint of only a select number of events in European Rallycross Championship, Foust sets his sights high with a full schedule, and a serious bid for the Championship this year in 2011.
With two rounds completed, Foust sits in second and only one point behind defending champion Sverre Isachsen. The next race is set to for May 21-22 in Essay France, and Foust has stated he will be there after a quick visit home to California.
