Ex-Formula One driver Will Stevens is set for his Pirelli World Challenge debut, having been confirmed with Bentley Team Absolute for this weekend’s SprintX round at Utah Motorsports Campus.
The British sports car star will team with Andrew Kim in Absolute’s No. 78 Bentley Continental GT3, which will compete for Pro-Am class honors.
It will mark Stevens’ first start in a Bentley, coming in the Chinese team’s return to PWC competition after missing last month’s Mid-Ohio Sprint round due to driver conflicts.
Bentley factory driver Vincent Abril, fresh off a second-place finish in the Total 24 Hours of Spa, will rejoin Adderly Fong in the No. 88 Bentley, which is one of 12 cars in the GT Pro-Pro class for the weekend.
The SprintX grid swells to a 31-car grid for the penultimate round of the season, with a number of other notable additions.
