Robichon and Moorespeed Score Second-Straight GT3 Cup Challenge USA Weekend Sweep in No. 19 CAG/Moorespeed Porsche GT3 Cup   DANVILLE, Virginia (August 19, 2018) – Zach Robichon and Moorespeed stayed perfect on the season with their fourth IMSA Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama race win together in as many races Sunday at VIRginia International Raceway (VIR), but the path to today’s checkered flag was far from easy.   In their previous three victories – a doubleheader sweep at Road America two weeks ago and Saturday at VIR – Robichon and Moorespeed were never challenged in flag-to-flag romps to the checkered flag from the pole.   Robichon started from the pole again for Sunday’s second and final 45-minute race of the weekend but it soon became apparent he and the Moorespeed team were going to have to dig a little deeper to earn their fourth victory.   Robichon led the race’s opening lap only to drop to second place a lap later when he...

Moorespeed co-owner David Moore and driver Will Hardeman will celebrate at Road America, and they prefer the location to be on the podium. Hardeman celebrated his one-year racing anniversary July 31, seven days before the IMSA Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama field hits the track at Road America on Aug. 7-9. Moore will celebrate returning to the track that hosted his first race as a professional driver. Moore believes Rounds 9 and 10 at Road America represent the best chance so far this season for Hardeman to earn his first Platinum Cup podium finish in the No. 19 Moorespeed/WPD Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car. Hardeman and Moorespeed raced in the Pirelli GT3 Cup Trophy USA series July 31-Aug. 2 at Road America, giving Hardeman extra track time under race conditions as he learns yet another new circuit.

Will Hardeman sat with David Moore in a passenger sports car a year ago at Circuit of the Americas in their hometown of Austin, Texas. Hardeman and his father, whose family runs a successful auto dealership group in Austin, received an opportunity to drive their sports cars at speed around the COTA circuit during a charity event. Hardeman asked his friend Moore, owner of an Austin-based vintage, racing and exotic preparation shop and race team Moorespeed, to join him to offer tips. They had a blast, thrashing the car around the circuit at a brisk pace behind a pace car. It was Hardeman’s first experience in a performance car on a racetrack, and he relished it. But he had no dreams of competition. “I thought that was as good as it got,” Hardeman said of his charity track day. Moore had other ideas. At higher speeds, Hardeman’s driving lines weren’t tidy. His...

Will Hardeman capped off a perfect weekend for the hometown crowd at COTA by taking the Pole in both qualifying sessions on Saturday and Sunday and then leading from start to finish in both races for the double header victory. Sunday the WPD/Moorespeed team arrived to COTA in a rainstorm. Morning practice was cancelled by officials. Qualifying for Race 2 was very wet. Hardeman who had never driven in the rain before used the first half of qualifying to get the feel of the car. When Moorespeed's David Moore told him "Its time to get with the program" he delivered instantly again qualifying P1. Will went on to victory with a margin of over 10 seconds to the second and third place cars of IMSA regulars. The team heads to Sebring with great momentum for the IMSA GT3 Cup season held in conjunction with the 12 Hours of Sebring. Watch Race #2 on YouTube compliments of...
