Drivers view with Dyson Racing Bentley Continental GT3

One of the most talked about Pirelli World Challenge race teams released a driver’s view of a race that was recently held in Toronto.  Dyson Racing shared a video of Butch Leitzinger driving a Bentley Continental GT3 in the first of two races being held during the Challenge.  In the video below, you will have he opportunity to experience the race from the driver’s seat, including accidents during the race.  Enjoy the video and keep an eye out for the next video Dyson Racing releases.

Here is another video from Dyson Racing, highlighting the Bentley’s North American debut at Road America earlier in the year.  I had the opportunity to be there and witness this incredible machine take on one of the longest tracks in the world.  Since this was the first time racing in North America in over 10 years, Dyson didn’t miss a beat running the second fastest lap.  This is such a beautiful car to see in person.  At first glance, you are thinking,“Did I just see a Bentley?”  Yes you did.  I hope you enjoy the video as much as I did and, I look forward to seeing the great success the team has been having this year continue into the future.

Earlier in the year, I had the opportunity to hang out with the guys over at Roush Performance.  I met up with them in Chicago for lunch while they were en route from Detroit, MI to Elkhart Lake, WI for the Pirelli World Challenge at Road America.  They were making the trip in the Roush Performance Ford Raptor, which is a truck you have to see as it is incredible.

 

We met up for lunch at one of my favorite Irish restaurants in Chicago, Mystic Celt in the Lakeview neighborhood.  Since the Roush crew was running ahead of schedule, I suggested we go to the beach after we finished eating.  It was a beautiful day in Chicago and everyone was out, so I figured it would be a good way to be visible and have some fun.  North Avenue Beach is probably the most recognizable beach in Chicago, so we headed that way.  As we were cruising down Lake Shore Drive, we caused a bit of a traffic “issue” as people were trying to get a look at the beast of a truck that Roush was riding in.  As usual, the beach was crowded, so we spoke to Chicago’s finest, who allowed us to do a quick photo shoot on the sand.

We all had great time during the shoot and while enjoying the scenery, but the crew had to get back on the road and I had to go back to dealing with local traffic.  I was only able to take exterior shots of the truck since the interior was loaded with luggage, but I think you’ll get the picture.  This has to be one of my favorite trucks.  The graphics really stick out and give it that aggressive look.

Later in the week, I was at Road America and met up with them during the races.  We all had great time and especially enjoyed seeing Jack Roush Jr. reach the podium on race two.  For more information on the Roush Performance Ford Raptor, please visit www.RoushPerformance.com.
