Courtesy of Sportscar 365: Pirelli World Challenge is making its return to Portland International Raceway this weekend, marking the series’ first trip to the venue since 2005
Dino Crescentini won the GT event that year in a Corvette C6, leading a podium of Leighton Reese and Wolf Henzler. Randy Pobst was the winner in the Touring Car race in a Mazda 6, while Eric Curran and Matt Richmond joined him on the podium.
Epic Motorsports driver James Clay, Pfaff Motorsports’ Henzler, and Blackdog Speed Shop’s Tony Gaples and Andy Pilgrim are the only drivers in this weekend’s field that took part in the most recent races in Portland in 2005. Peter Cunningham, whose RealTime Racing operation fields two Honda Civic Type-R TCR machines in the TCR class, also drove in the last PWC event at the track.
