Andretti Autosport’s new Bettle ralycross racer made its debut last weekend in the Los Angeles’ round of the Global Rallycross Championship.
American ace Tanner Foust drove the Beetle in the event.
His teammate, former Toro Rosso Formula 1 driver Scott Speed captured victory Saturday and finished 6th Sunday, driving a VW Polo.
Andretti Autosport and Volkswagen of America produced this 544-bhp GRC Volkswagen Beetle.
Tanner showed that it was quick straight out of the box, setting the best time in one of the qualifying heats.
“We gained a lot of experience and we were quite competitive. I look forward to the next race held Saturday in Seattle”, said Foust.
