GT3 Racing

The 2022 Fanatec GT World Challenge America powered by AWS championship will see two DXDT Racing Mercedes AMG GT3 cars in competition. This will mark the team’s sixth year racing Mercedes machinery, returning with two cars for the seven-weekend championship. The season will again end with the Indianapolis 8 Hour, running in conjunction with the Intercontinental GT Challenge.

This GT3 series competes across the continent on some of the best tracks North America has to offer. Each event weekend consists of two races, welcoming a wide range of homologated manufacturers, producing exciting competition. The two-driver, 90-minute SprintX format, complete with full-service pit stops makes racing a true team effort.
