Just one year removed from winning a driver, team and manufacturers’ GT championship in the Pirelli World Challenge, K-Pax Racing is switching to Bentley Continental GT3 cars for the 2018 season.

In 2017, K-Pax finished second to Wright Motorsports for the GT team title, while McLaren finished third behind Porsche and Cadillac for the overall GT manufacturers’ title. 

“We competed with the very best from Porsche, Cadillac, Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Acura and many others,” said Jim Haughey, K-PAX Racing’s team owner. “We are looking forward to working with Bentley to win races next season and compete for another championship.”

K-Pax has 15 wins and 34 podiums over the past four years in the PWC.

“Working with McLaren GT for the past four years has been a great experience and produced tremendous results,” said Darren Law, program manager at K-Pax Racing. “At the end of each season, we evaluate the performance of our team and our program, as well as what the future looks like. With the introduction of the new Bentley Continental GT3, we see a lot of potential. 

“Currently we are in the process of finalizing K-Pax’s 2018 driver lineup and will be making an announcement soon. We look forward to joining the Bentley Racing family and continuing our success beginning with next season.”
