Sébastien Loeb won the RallyCross final by more than 12 seconds, showing why he’s an eight-time defending WRC champion. But because of a controversial crash in his first RallyCross heat Sunday, Travis Pastrana never got to race him. Instead, Pastrana watched from the sideline, seething, as Loeb dominated the wild 10-car final and won the gold medal.

K1 Speed in Irvine, California was visited by Firestone Indy Lights driver Sebastian Saavedra this week along with some friends to take a few hot lapping sessions at the top indoor kart racing center in the O.C. Quickly showing his skills as a professional race car driver Sebastian was able to find the fast line around the track in his second session on track and began posting fast lap times that rivaled the top lap times of the week on the technical race course.
Not bad for a first time visit by a well seasoned formula car driver who has a number of race days in Formula BMW chassis in different race series around the world, before making the move to the Firestone Indy Light series in 2009 where he drove alongside teammate J. R. Hildebrand. In 2010 he returned to the series for Bryan Herta Autosport, and made his IndyCar Series debut in the 2010 Indianapolis 500.
Currently Sebastian sits 1st in the championship points standings in the Firestone Indy Lights Series taking podium finishes in the first 3 races of the year. K1 Speed looks forward to seeing Sebastian and his friends back in house soon and would like to wish him good luck in his future racing endeavors.
