SH Rallycross announced today an alliance with RTD Autosport for the Red Bull Global Rallycross Lites Championship beginning in the 2016 season.
A division of Race Tech Development, RTD Autosport, is owned and operated by Mike Maurini who is also the owner of an elite level karting program. Attracting drivers from around the world with the assistance of karting mogul Martijn Koene, the international program operates under the name Team Koene USA.
The alliance provides young Karting talent a direct “PipeLine” to GRC Lites with the ultimate goal of competing for the SH Rallycross Super Car team.  RTD Autosport expects to announce the first driver of the PipeLine program in the coming weeks.
“I am very happy that we are able to announce the partnership between RTD Autosport and SH Rallycross for the Global Rallycross Lites Championship,” explained Race Tech Development’s Mike Maurini. “With the help of Chris Wheeler, we were able to lay out the program with the SH staff and we couldn’t be happier with what we have put in place. Sulli and his team are proven winners in both GRC and IndyCar, and I know we will produce a solid GRC Lites PipeLine program from karting to SuperCars.”
SH Rallycross finished fourth in the 2015 Red Bull Global Rallycross SuperCar standings on the strength of four podium performances from driver Nelson Piquet Jr., the team’s first win in Washington D. C, and being the only SuperCar team to make every main event.
