2017 Pirelli World Challenge Rounds 12 & 13: Mid-Ohio

Next up for Pirelli World Challenge is a stop at another of the truly classic tracks on the series schedule, Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. Mid-Ohio has plenty of Midwestern beauty: with the track featuring both lightly wooded sections and wide open space, it's a great place for both spectating and photography.

McLaren and Cadillac were both strong last year, so expect to see Alvaro Parente, Bryan Sellers, Johnny O'Connell and Michael Cooper near the front. It's worth noting that Ryan Dalziel swept Mid-Ohio with EFFORT in both '14 and '15, and makes his return after a year's hiatus. Patrick Long is always fast, and comes in with momentum from Road America.

R. Ferri Motorsport returns to the entry list, with Kyle Marcelli set to take over the driving duties in the #61 Ferrari.

In GTS, Lawson Aschenbach still holds a large points advantage over Martin Barkey, Rodrigo Baptista and Ian James. Aschenbach has done well at Mid-Ohio in the past, but the Camaro, Cayman and Panoz are all new to the track, and it remains to be seen which cars will be fast.

Both GTS races, and Saturday's GT Race 1 will live streamed.

I notice that Absolute Racing with Bentley Motorsports is not listed at all. I believe that Adderly Fong is racing in Asia, and Yufeng Luo is still upset with the BoP, which is why he failed to show up at the last round at Road America.

Yeah, I was hoping they'd run a substitute driver, but with all the Bentley factory drivers running Spa, that must not be an option. I hadn't heard anything about Luo being upset with the BoP, where was that said?

Okay. Saw his car being rebuilt at RA, had figured it was just due to crash damage.

Seems a bit strange to see a Bentley driver skip Road America due to BOP concerns, since RA is probably the most Bentley friendly track on the schedule.

Great news! It will be fun to see what Marcelli can do with the 488 in regular sprint competition.

Totally agree! He missed his best opportunity to podium there, but as a paying driver he can decide when/where he wants to drive!

It's because the BoP in the Am class was different than the Pro class, for certain cars.
