Johnny O'Connell enters the final Pirelli World Challenge event with a 26 GT driver point lead. Cadillac will start 5th and 6th based on qualifying results http://worldchallenge.growsites.net/#session_6426 behind 2 Ferraris, a 911GT3, and an R8 LMS.

From Paddocktalk http://paddocktalk.com/news/html/story-288409.html

After leading the GT Drivers' Championship for much of the season, Olivier Beretta, of Monte Carlo, Monaco in the No. 61 Ferrari of Ontario/Toronto/Alberta Ferrari 458 GT3 Italia, comes into the weekend second in points with 1599, only 26 points behind O'Connell after closing the gap slightly at Sonoma. Beretta has won three races this season and he makes his second PWC series start at MRLS.

JD Davison, of St. Petersburg, Fla., in the No. 33 AE/Replay XD Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 sits third overall in the GT Championship coming into MRLS with 1490 points and has a mathematical chance to win the title if both O'Connell and Beretta falter. Davison makes his first career Pirelli World Challenge start at MRLS. Davison's teammate Bryan Heitkotter, of Fresno, Calif., will pilot the No. 05 Nissan GT Academy GT-R AE Replay XD Nissan GT-R GT3. Heitkotter was promoted to GT from GTA after finishing third overall in Round 15 at Mid-Ohio.

Beretta is starting 12th; Davison is starting 14th.

Following a dramatic, tense, action-packed and ever-changing season finale – all terms which seemed to define the 2015 Pirelli World Challenge season – Johnny O’Connell has retained his crown in GT after a roller coaster, 50-minute season finale at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.

It’s O’Connell’s fourth consecutive championship and first in the new Cadillac ATS-V.R, which made its competition debut this year.

O’Connell finished 12th in the No. 3 Cadillac Racing Cadillac ATS-V.R, surviving apparent contact with chief title rival Olivier Beretta at the Corkscrew on Lap 25 that dropped him from third to 14th, but making it home to the finish.
