Salt lake City, UTAH – The Pirelli World Challenge concludes its 25th anniversary season with a return to Miller Motorsports Park, with #61 Anthony Lazzaro from R.Ferri Motorsport Racing with Ferrari still having an opportunity at the overall championship.
The GT Series has a pair of 50-minute sprints for Rounds 15 and 16 of the season. The second race for these categories serves as a makeup event for the weather-postponed first race at St. Petersburg in March.
Mathematically, there are five drivers still in the running for the Championship but the three drivers currently sitting first, second and third – Johnny O’Connell, Mike Skeen and Anthony Lazzaro will battle for the GT class crown.
On the strength of his second win in 2014, Sonoma’s Round 14, Anthony Lazzaro, of Atlanta, Ga., moved into third place in points in the No. 61 R. Ferri Motorsports Ferrari 458 Italia GT3 over Andy Pilgrim, in the No. 8 Cadillac and Andrew Palmer, in the No. 21 Audi R8 Ultra.
With his third-place position, Lazzaro is still alive at 160 points back of O’Connell (1376-1216).
A maximum of 304 points are available this weekend in each class. A driver would achieve that maximum with a win (140 points) and by securing all 12 bonus points in each race. Drivers not within 152 points heading into Saturday’s races will be mathematically eliminated from championship contention.
