Biography

Dean began his stewarding efforts in the 1970s, overseeing Sports Car racing in the United States. He worked his way up through the officiating ladder, starting out as a scrutineer and then participating in some stewarding until becoming race director of the Sports Car Club of America’s championship.

Dennis has been a Formula One scrutineer for many of the events held in the US, including stints at both Indianapolis and the current location in Austin. He is a member of many FIA bodies, including the land speed commission as well as the International Sporting Code review squad – those that tweak the rules to ensure a fair competition.

He made his stewarding debut at the Australian Grand Prix season opener of 2017.
