DXDT Racing has formed a sister team, Regulator Racing, that will be focused on Jeff Burton’s Mercedes-AMG GT3 Evo program for the remainder of the Fanatec GT World Challenge America powered by AWS season.

The North Carolina-based operation, owned by David Askew, will field Burton and Philip Ellis under the Regulator banner, with many of the same crew set to continue to operate the No. 91 Mercedes-AMG.

It comes amid DXDT’s transition to operating Chevrolet Corvette Z06 GT3.Rs, with the first car for Bryan Sellers an Scott Smithson set to debut in next month’s round at Sebring International Raceway.

“Our partnership with Mercedes-AMG is strong and always has been,” said Askew. “We’ve made some progress on getting that car and the program where it needs to be.

“Working closely with them and bringing talent like Philip in to help us develop that car shows our commitment to getting this car where it should be: the podium.

“Our aim is to have the fastest Mercedes on track, and I think this move will help us get closer to that goal.”
