Dyson Racing Team Bentley takes on Pirelli World Challenge Season Finale

After two solid performances last month at Sonoma Raceway, Dyson Racing Team Bentley is ready to sprint into Rounds 15 and 16 of the Pirelli World Challenge. The season finale double-header races take place at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah on Friday, September 12 and Saturday, September 13.

Following his season debut in the Bentley Continental GT3 #88 at the Sonoma Raceway double-header, Guy Smith will again join teammate and fellow Bentley Boy Butch Leitzinger. Piloting his #08 Continental GT3, Leitzinger earned his first podium finish of the season – third place – in Round 13 at Sonoma. Leitzinger was awarded the ‘Move of the Race’ award after a daring pass of two fellow drivers during the 50 minute sprint. Smith again took fastest lap-honors and set a new track record while Leitzinger took second-fastest lap in the now proven Bentley racers.

Chris Dyson, Vice President and Sporting Director for the team, comments:
“The Continental GT3 has shown its strength on the track. Our goal this season was to learn about the car and the series and we have gained important knowledge at each race. What we’ve learned at each track has allowed us to make advancements in each of the following rounds. Butch’s podium and Guy’s pole position and fastest race laps at our most recent event in Sonoma underlines our progress. Everyone on the team has worked extremely hard to optimize the car to meet the demands of the sprint race series. We’re excited about this weekend’s competition.”

Race one, round 15, begins at 4:50 p.m. MDT Friday and Round 16 at 2:15 p.m. MDT Saturday. Dyson Racing Team Bentley’s performance can be followed via live stream at http://www.world-challengetv.com. The race can be seen Sunday, September 28 at 2:30 p.m. EDT on NBC Sports Network.
