#19 WPD/Moorespeed Porsche GT3 Cup Team finished a very productive two day Test at their home track COTA.  The team tested both the 2016 Porsche GT3 Cup 991 that driver Will Hardeman will use to compete in the 2016 Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama series but also the 2014 Porsche GT3 Cup they will run together in Pirelli World Challenge Will Hardeman enthusiastically stated "It was the best test of my life"  Our Two Day Winter Test home at COTA could not have gone better.  The team hasn't been together since the finale at Laguna.  I needed a break.  The program Dave and the team put me through last year was super intense.  I was still a little worried I might come back at a sub par level.  This winter I thought a lot about the bad habits I'd developed and really worked on eliminating them mentally and it...

#19 WPD/Moorespeed Porsche GT3 Cup Team is pleased to announce entry into the Pirelli World Challenge race at home track Circuit of the Americas. Today was a rollercoaster ride", according to David Moore, "I received the news at 4am this morning from SRO out of their UK offices that they were cancelling the 6 Hours of the Americas.

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.

Will Hardeman started the #19 WPD/Moorespeed GT3 Cup Porsche from the pole, his first pole position ever. In a radio interview after qualifying with Speed City announcer Les Kiser, the rookie driver revealed his plan for Race #1 was to get through turn one first and lay down qualifying laps to try to build a gap and go for the win. 17 laps later he took the checkered flag P1 with a 34-second gap to second place following that plan to the letter.
