Written by DAVE DOOLITTLE It was a perfect weekend for Pirelli GT3 Cup Trophy USA driver Will Hardeman. The 33-year-old from Austin, Texas, swept both races in his WPD/Moorespeed Porsche 911 at Circuit of The Americas, winning the first race by almost 35 seconds and taking the second victory Sunday in rainy conditions. What's more impressive is that Hardeman has only been driving racecars for about seven months and was competing for the first time at Circuit of The Americas. "The thing is I've been watching people race here enough, and I know the right guys to talk to that know the track, that have turned more laps than anyone and the pros that have run the fastest times," Hardeman said Sunday afternoon. "This is my first race at COTA but I'm from Austin, I'm no stranger to the track." Hardeman comes from an automotive family and continues to work full-time at Continental Automotive Group (Austin...

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...
