Bryan Heitkotter Racing in Pirelli World Challenge Series

August 24th, 2012 by Jordan

The 2011 U.S. GT Academy champion, Bryan Heitkotter, is about to make his debut in the Pirelli World Challenge at Sonoma Raceway (formerly Infineon Raceway, as found in Gran Turismo 4).

“I am really excited to have a chance to race in the Pirelli World Challenge Series in a new car, a race format utilizing a standing start, at a track so close to my roots. Every new challenge is a chance to grow as a professional and demonstrate what I can do behind the wheel,” said Heitkotter.

He has, of course, already enjoyed success in the Grand Am Continental Challenge, having already scored two pole positions and three top-ten finishes in four race starts.

His race at Sonoma begins at 19:00 GMT, Saturday, August 25, and will streamed live at and re-broadcast on NBC Sports Sunday, September 9, at 3:30pm Eastern time.

Good luck, Bryan!

    I`ve been following him in the Continental Tire series, he`s had some great starting positions and some bad breaks, like a head on collision just after leaving pit lane, but for the most part I think he`s doing great.

    Best of luck, Bryan! Missed out seeing the race at Road America a few weeks ago but i am going to try to catch this one the live stream.


      all past races are on the world challenge website,i must get there and watch the races 1 day

  7. I went to the Indycar Belle Isle Grand Prix this year and got there first thing in the morning while the World Challenge cars where practicing or qualifying, not sure which it was. But anyways, I watched the race and it was some really good stuff. They got theor work cut out though, those CTS-V’s are tough…. and get sound pretty good too, lol!

    Damn he’s changing from a NASCAR based Rolex to World Challenge. He is getting valuable experience very fast. I’m glad to see that GT and Kaz’s people will be getting this exposure. Who knows what could follow, maybe CTS-V coupe rm? I’m just saying…..

  9. Good Luck Bryan in the PWC, I know you’ll do well in the GT-R.
