The international swing continues for the Chrysler Group, coming from Barcelona Spain to LeMans France, & now heading to Munich Germany for the 2013 European Summer X-Games!
Last time out the GRC race in Barcelona Spain, was rained out & deemed too dangerous to race.
Because of that, GRC offficials had a decision to make, cancel the race totally or have a makeup race at the next venue? Well Dodge Dart race fans, GRC announced back on June 11th
that there will be TWO races held on the same weekend
to makeup for the race that was rained out in Spain!
Here is the official Race Schedule:
