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...

Door Doctor/Moorespeed's Jesse Lazare takes his first career GT win at the Canadian Tire Motorsports Park in Bomanville Ontario Saturday, July 12th in the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama. It was a four-man race for the most part of the race that tightened up the last few laps as the top four runners led by Jesse Lazare ran began working their way lapping the back of the field. Jesse was taken out of the Friday race by Angel Benitez Jr. sitting in second place who along with Colin Thompson and winner of race one, Sloan Urry looked for an opportunity that the young Lazare never afforded them. Team Manager Price Cobb came on the radio, "Jess you have 10 laps to go, drive them like qualifying laps and the win is yours".

Le Mans Winner Helps Guide Young Canadian Star Jesse Lazare wanted to further his racing career, a challenge in its own right. But rather than just finding help, he found a mentor to push him and a series that gives him tough competition. Canadian Lazare, 17, is the driver of the No. 31 Door Doctor/Moorespeed Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car fielded by Moorespeed in the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama. Original article courtesy IMSA: http://www.imsa.com/articles/lazare-finds-home-legend-cobb   The team is run by 1990 24 Hours of Le Mans winner Price Cobb, who is much more than a general manager for Montreal resident Lazare – he’s a mentor and confidant. “Price is everything,” Lazare said. “He helps everyone out. He helps me, he helps the mechanics, and he’s even booking the hotels. It’s great to have him work with me. I never have to double-think on if he’s giving me the right information. I...

Price Cobb won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1990. He won three consecutive North American Porsche Cup titles from 1986-88 and the Porsche Cup as the most successful privateer Porsche driver in the world in 1994. But recently he made a confession about his stellar sports car driving career. “Quite frankly, I know I did well because I surrounded myself with stars,” Cobb said. “I know I wasn’t that good as a driver, but the effort was that good, and it made me look like a star. So today, I try to do that for others. My main deal in life today is to help others.” Cobb is doing just that for Moorespeed, an Austin, Texas-based team that is returning to competition for the first time since 2001, this season in the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama, starting with the first two rounds March 13-14 during the...
