2017 Pirelli World Challenge Rounds 14 & 15: Utah Motorsports Campus

Next up for Pirelli World Challenge is it's annual trip to Utah Motorsports Campus and it's beautiful mountainous backdrop. After two rounds of classic PWC Sprint racing, this round marks a return to Sprint-X (Cue Wilhelm Scream).

As previously announced, Michael Lewis will join Bryan Sellers in the #6 McLaren. Impressive. Most impressive.

Gainsco will make their Sprint-X debut with Jon Fogarty alongside Porsche Jedi Wolf Henzler. Do not underestimate the power of the Wolf.

Mathieu Jaminet replaces Laurens Vanthoor in the #14 with James Sofronas.

Local team DXDT joins the Pro/Am field with their Mercedes.

Both Absolute cars return, good news for those of us who found Mid Ohio's lack of Bentleys disturbing. The second Absolute Bentley is now driven by Andrew Kim and former F1 driver Will Stevens.

GTS features the return of the Ian Lacy Ginettas, making up for the absence of the PMG cars.

GMG and NOLAsport are each bringing a Porsche to the GTS field.

In the TC classes, the biggest news is the US debut of the Toyota 86 Cup car for Craig Stanton in TCA.

Last year's GT Qualifying Record by Alvaro Parente was 1:47.492, or almost fast enough to make the Kessel Run in less than 12 Parsecs.

As it's a Sprint-X weekend all races should be streamed, which means you'll be able to find the races you're looking for.

So that's what Will Stevens is doing then, following his ousting from his Audi to fit Andre Lotterer in at Spa 24

According to Sportscar365, it's his first start with Bentley. I wonder if this is a one-off, or if he's going to be a Bentley driver from now on?

Looks like TRG will be bringing one of their Astons, either for GTS or Sprint-X.

According to the entry list, Derek DeBoer and Jason Alexandridis are already entered in SprintX GTS Am/Am with a Vantage GT4.

Yep, looks like that's the one TRG's Twitter is talking about.

R. Ferri's old 458 GT3 is on the entry list as well, with its drivers listed as Drew Regitz and Kris Wilson.

Only 6 GTS cars? What's the deal with that?

Good Question! GTS is such a great class with some really cool cars, you'd think there would be more entries. There are 12 additional GTS cars in the Am class, so I guess we could do worse than 18 total. However a few more would always be welcome.

Cool! Miller Motorsport Park should be a great track for the Bentleys.

A lot of interesting bits of information in SC365's Thursday notebook.

The #31 TR3 Ferrari topped both Sprint-X practice sessions. They look pretty quick this weekend.

Still more than a second behind Parente's qualifying lap record from last year, but with the BOP classification change, it's hard to tell what sort of pace the GT cars will have.

Flying Lizard Porsches and the G3 Ginetta looking strong in GTS.

Mantella has been kicked out of PWC again? Maybe he should go race in Trans-Am as Drissi got reinstated even though they booted him out earlier this year.

75% of the TC field are BMW's. That's a pretty high percentage for just one model of car. 21 BMW's, 4 Audis and 3 Other.
