The season finale of the Porsche series, the Pirelli Drivers Cup came to a close with two final rounds at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
While in town for the SEMA convention and performing duties for Discount Tire ride-a-longs, Brian Wong returned to the series where his Porsche GT3 sports car roots began in the Pirelli Drivers Cup USA. The first on-track practice session was held late Friday afternoon. Driving the #23 World Stage Racing Porsche GT3 Cup car, Brian Wong was third fastest in the first practice. Early evening rain came, canceling the remaining practice of the day before qualifying on Saturday. Comfortable with the track and the Pirelli Drivers Cup series, Brian Wong posted the second fastest time in qualifying late afternoon on Saturday. At the green flag for round 11, Brian Wong got a great start on the first place car, passing for the lead in turn two and never looking back. Forty-five minutes later, Brian Wong, in the #23 World Stage Racing Porsche GT3, lead the field to the checker flag, taking first in round 11.
Qualifying for round 12 of the Pirelli Drivers Cup was held on Sunday morning, just an hour before the green flag of the final round. Saving his tires for the race, Brian Wong settled third quickest in qualifying. After the drop of the green flag, the battle was on between the top three cars. The #23 World Stage Racing Porsche GT3 gained a position but a large gap between second and first would make it a great battle for the win. With just ten minutes remaining in final the race, Brian Wong passed the first place car for the lead. The #23 World Stage Racing Porsche GT3 took the checkered flag in P1 for the final round of thePirelli Drivers Cup 2011 season.
A weekend sweep was just what World Stage Racing and driver Brian Wong needed after a trying year of sports car racing in the American Le Mans Series.
