This is the #33 Volkswagen GLI driven by Tristan Herbert in the Pirelli World Challenge Touring Car class. This weekend, the series is in Utah, racing at Miller Motorsports Park, and Herbert just took the win in his race this afternoon.

While noteworthy, Herbert's victory itself is not the news item here. It's the circumstances behind the win that appear to be pretty awesome. Scroll past the break to see the tweet from the Pirelli World Challenge folks that adds some immensely cool context.


Like we said in the headline, that's pretty hardcore. Congratulations to all parties involved.
