Dmitry Pistolyako, a new name to the Doran Motorsports Group, made a name for himself this past weekend at the opening round of the Formula Pro USA Western Championships Presented by Exclusive Racing. Taking on the ultra-fast Thunderhill Raceway Park, Dmitry closed the weekend with a pair of wins and the series point lead after one event weekend.

Beginning the weekend nearly one second behind the fastest drivers, Dmitry was able to put it all together in his maiden qualifying effort with a solid lap time of 1:51.565 to earn his first career pole position. Leading from flag-to-flag in the first wheel-to-wheel action on the weekend, Dmitry Pistolyako scored his first career F4 race win. Improving again on Sunday, Pistolyako once again scored the inside front row starting spot with a 1:51.325 and went on to make it two wins in two races dominating Sunday’s main event.

“Dmitry has been extremely dedicated to his goal since the first time he sat in our car,” explained Francois Doran, Owner of DMG. “He’s keeping his eyes on the prize and his motivation level is quite impressive. It is refreshing to see a driver that can recognize his strength and weakness and is open to improvement without always looking for excuses. His mindset is perfectly programmed to perform and improve.”

Confirmed for the complete Formula Pro USA Presented by Exclusive Racing season, Dmitry Pistolyako is determined to succeed. Sporting the colors of Linguatrip, an American online English learning platform, LinguaTrip allows people to book foreign language courses to study the language where it is spoken and enroll in foreign universities.
