Some of you may doubt the powers of the Jalopnik Bump, but the K-Pax Bentley team’s result today should put that to rest. Their No. 3 Continental GT3 won first place in the GTA class in today’s Pirelli World Challenge Sprint-X race.

Their sister No. 9 car did okay finishing just behind the No. 3 and fifth in the main GT class, but the No. 3 Pro-Am duo of Rodrigo Baptista and Maxime Soulet proved that the bump is definitely real. The big right-hand-drive No. 3 Bentley had the third fastest lap time of the entire group (including the all-pro GT class) and hustled its way right to the top of the podium.

Congratulations, K-Pax! Please enjoy the finest Jalopnik Gold Edition Brefass Scotch as soon as you’re done racing for the weekend.
