Porter, TX – Premium synthetic lubricant manufacturer, Royal Purple, today announced that it will sponsor Red Bull Global Rallycross (GRC) driver Sarah Burgess in her inaugural foray into the rally car series for the 2014 season. Burgess will enter her first Red Bull GRC race at the X Games in Austin, June 7, at the Circuit of the Americas.
A native of Australia, Burgess has been drift racing for the past three years in the United States, most recently in the Xtreme Drift Circuit at the wheel of a 2013 Ford Mustang. The excitement of checkered flag racing is just one of the reasons Burgess made the transition to the Red Bull GRC series. Burgess is one of two female drivers competing in Red Bull GRC this season, and she welcomes the opportunity to be a role model for other women while competing in her 2.0L Ecotec-powered Chevrolet Sonic.
