Andrew “ACP” Comrie-Picard hosts the pilot of Battle Cross, a new action television show premiering on SPEED TV on November 17 at 10pm Eastern, 7pm Pacific.

The high-energy, action-packed show features two pro drivers battling for best time and style on a stunt course laid out by ACP and tested in his Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X rallycross car.

The pilot episode pits 2011 American Rally champion David Higgins against his Subaru Rally Team USA teammate, X Games star Dave Mirra, in spectacular contests of speed and style.

This exciting new show takes action motorsports to a never-before-seen level of extreme as the two drivers race in identical rally cars on the most dangerous course imaginable, inside a working steel mill, at speeds of up to 90 miles per hour. Stacey Keibler (WWE, Dancing with the Stars) co-hosts and goes for a thrill ride in ACP’s car.

This exhilarating contest features two rounds of competition between the two rally stars. Round One is a lap of the Battle Cross course scored by time, with each driver given two attempts to clock their fastest time around the difficult course. Round Two is a two-minute freestyle session scored for difficulty, creativity, precision and style by two expert judges: drifting champion Samuel Hubinette, and rally driver Stephan Verdier.

Produced and directed by Rob Cohen, the top action director and creator of the The Fast and the Furious franchise, Battle Cross was created to attract a young adult audience with the intense visual excitement of 400-horsepower cars competing on challenging courses that combines spectacular jumps with high-speed precision maneuvers.

With a new and unique competition format, a course that lives and breathes pure havoc, and the most skilled drivers on the planet going at breakneck speeds, Battle Cross is poised to become a must-see show for racing fans.

Check for further information and additional show times on November 18th and 20th.
