Block Leads Second Pratice As Foust Closes In


Ken Block fired a warning shot to his fellow Red Bull Global Rallycross Championship competitors as he topped the times during the second practice for the opening round at the Top Gear Festival Barbados.

Two-time GRC champion Tanner Foust found pace in the Andretti Rallycross VW Polo in the second session to finish second with team-mate Scott Speed in fourth. Rhys Millen split the two VW’s in his RMR Hyundai.

Austin Dyne and Steve Arpin took fifth and sixth while Nelson Piquet Jr improved on the first session to finish in seventh place.

Sverre Isachsen and his Subaru Rally Team USA team-mate Bucky Lasek finished a lowly eighth and ninth, a second-and-a-half off the pace of Block.

New Zealander Emma Gilmour continued her acclimatization of the RM Hyundai, completing 11 laps.
