03 Mar Hardeman & #19 WPD/Moorespeed Qualify P1 again and win Race # 2 in the rain soaked Circuit of the Americas on Sunday
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.
