Multi-talented driver Tanner Foust is looking for a new challenge in 2012, hoping to get himself behind the wheel of an Indy Car towards the end of this year. With a busy schedule of rally racing this year, Foust put aside the sport of drifting (where he is a two-time champion) this year and it looks like drifting will be without Foust for at least another year.
The interview with Foust was conducted at this past weekend’s X-Games 17 courtesy of MotorWorldHype and Foust looks determined to get an Indy Car ride for 2012. He did state that he would like to return to drifting down the road, saying that he misses the sport and the driving, but it’s a very good chance it won’t happen for 2012.
Check out the interview after the break.
One of the most highly anticipated sports events to be held in America this year is the 17th meeting of the X Games, and this years event will get an extra dose of excitement.
At this years event, which will be held in Los Angeles, CA. will feature a RallyCross circuit on the streets of LA. This course through downtown LA will be the first of its kind and will surely please the crowd.
It’s already got Tanner Foust all excited. The co-host of Top Gear America will be competing again this year and said, “Having RallyCross at last year’s X Games was a huge step for the sport, but racing through city streets is how motorsport began. Being in the car, ripping through streets, cranking the handbrake through intersections while door-to-door and jumping next to buildings is going to be truly epic! I can’t wait!”
The games main broadcaster, ESPN will be pulling out all the stops for the coverage of this event. They will cover 25 hours of events in high-definition and 18 hours of 3D coverage will also be provided.
The games will take place between July 28 – 31 and will be broadcasted in 121 countries.
