  • Dillon Battistini (Ewell, 3 de dezembro de 1977) é um automobilista inglês. Correu em diversas categorias de kart até 2003, quando disputou a Caterham R400 Challenge. Ao deixar a categoria, ficou três anos afastado das pistas, retornando para disputar o certame asiático da Fórmula 3, sagrando-se campeão da mesma no ano seguinte. Em 2008, Battistini foi para a Indy Lights, onde venceu quatro provas até 2010. Correndo pelas equipes Panther, Moore, Genoa Racing, PBIR e Bryan Herta Autosport, ainda obteve uma pole - única dele na categoria. Mesmo fora da Lights em 2011, Battistini manteve-se ligado ao automobilismo quando fez testes com a equipe Conquest, estreando no GP de Kentucky pelo mesmo time, terminando em 28º lugar. Ainda disputaria o GP de Las Vegas, mas o acidente que tirou a vida do compatriota Dan Wheldon impediu que esta prova entrasse para o currículo de Battistini, que oficialmente disputaria apenas a prova de Kentucky.

In 2006 and 2007 he raced in the Asian Formula Three Championship, finishing 4th his first year and winning the 2007 series championship and the most races on 5 race wins. After testing a Champ Car for Minardi Team USA and the subsequent unification of American Open Wheel Racing, Battistini signed to race in the Firestone Indy Lights Series (formerly the Indy Pro Series) for Panther Racing less than 10 days before the season was set to begin. Battistini won his first race in the series which was also his first race on an oval track at Homestead-Miami Speedway on 29 March 2008. On 24 May Battistini won the Firestone Freedom 100 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway from the pole for his second win of the season. Later that week he revealed that he and his team are preparing for him to make his IndyCar Series debut later in 2008. He won two further races at Iowa and Kentucky. For the final race of the year, Battistini left the Panther team to race for Team Moore Racing. Battistini was presented with the Gregory and Appel 'Securing Tomorrow' Award for winning the most races in the season at the 2008 IRL Awards Evening in Las Vegas. He competed in the fourth race of the 2009 season in a one-off for Genoa Racing and has been attempting to find a ride in the IndyCar Series. Having been unable to do so, he made two Indy Lights oval race appearances in 2010 for Team PBIR and Bryan Herta Autosport. He participated in an IndyCar test with Conquest Racing at Kentucky Speedway on 23 September 2011, and made his IndyCar Series debut with the team in the 2011 season's race at Kentucky. Battistini has won the most races in every full season of car racing he has contested, except Asian Formula 3 in 2006, during which he was driving a car which had a fault with its chassis for most of the year.
