It was a stellar weekend for the Ford Mustang this weekend at the Pirelli World Challenge races at Belle Isle this weekend, as Dean Martin of Rehagen Racing won both races in the GTS class. Martin, who made his World Challenge debut in this event last year, how now won three of the four races he’s competed in at the Belle Isle circuit in Detroit.

Martin started off his dominant weekend by posting the fastest qualifying session on Friday and then leading flag-to-flag for the first race on Saturday.

“This one’s a little better (than last year),” Martin confirmed. “After the controversy at Barber, with a brand new car here, it’s a great morale booster for us. The Ford Mustang needed it. It’s a great comeback for everyone at Rehagen Racing to get this new car ready.”

The win put Martin in pole position for the second race on Sunday, who once again held off the competition to take his second checkered flag in two days. Fellow Mustang driver Tony Buffomante of Capaldi Racing finished close behind, notching his second podium of the year. Martin is now third overall in the standings.

“We are committed to doing a full season in the series with our Mustang; the Mustangs really show their strength here in Detroit, our home territory,” Martin said. “It’s really great to bring home a win for Ford here. Hats off to our crew, brand new car that was originally built as a show car and we tore it down and took what was left from the race car from Barber.”

The next Pirelli World Challenge race will be at Road America in Elkhart Lake, WI from June 19-21.
