WPD/Moorespeed Porsche Race Team enters Pirelli World Challenge race at COTA

#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. It broke my heart to relay the news to the team who were in deep preparation working around the clock to have the best shot at a win.”

Moorespeed had a strong winning history in World Challenge over a decade ago so the decision to run Will Hardeman in the #19 WPD/Moorespeed Porsche GT3 Cup was reached to run in the GT Cup class for the season opener of PWC at our home track Circuit of the Americas.

“I want to personally thank Greg Gill, Moore continued, Greg and the folks of Pirelli World Challenge really run a great program and know their customers. It’s been years since we competed in PWC but when the President calls you to make things right, it was a simple decision and perfect time for us to come back at home in Austin at Circuit of the Americas.”

Moorespeed, Hardeman Earn Highest Finish of the Season at VIR 600 359 MOORESPEED

Moorespeed, Hardeman Earn Highest Finish of the Season at VIR

IMSA #19 Hardeman

AUSTIN, Texas  (Aug. 26, 2015) – Moorespeed and driver Will Hardeman progressed to a season-best finish at VIRginia International Raceway during Rounds 11, 12 and Round 4 of the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama series.

Hardeman finished fourth after starting third in the rescheduled Round 4 Sunday, Aug. 23. The race was rained out in two previous scheduled dates. Round 4 was long anticipated for Hardeman and Moorespeed. The team qualified a season-high third at NOLA only for the race to be postponed due to rain at NOLA and again at Watkins Glen.The first two races of the weekend at VIR had highs and lows, but a more conservative approach to the first half of Round 4 found Hardeman dropping back into the clutches of veteran Kasey Kuhlman.

A battle ensued between the two, and the hard-edged racing had consequences.Hardeman’s No. 19 Moorespeed/WPD Porsche and Kuhlman’s No. 15 Porsche made hard contact in Turn 14. Hardeman went off track but continued quickly to catch Kuhlman and make the pass for his fourth-place finish as Kuhlman went off track two turns later due to damage from the previous contact.

Team owner David Moore was proud of the gains Hardeman made but still sees room for improvement in his racecraft.

“He ran a conservative race but he got his best finish of the season,” Moore said. “He did a great job, but, I felt he was a bit too conservative for either of our taste. In hindsight, a podium finish was well within his reach if he drove the way he did in Race Two. His brake zones became longer, and he would get on the gas just a tad bit later. I would have liked to have seen him push harder, but I also didn’t want to push him into a spin. He maybe didn’t have the pace for first or second, but I think he could have held third.

“Will has worked so damn hard in record time; we all want it for him, and it can be frustrating. We talked again this evening after landing home in Austin, and he’s not satisfied with his performance. That’s a good thing. He’s proud of what he’s accomplished in only 12 months. I’m very proud, but he’s hungry for more and feels he is close to a breakthrough. He’s coming over dinner later this week, and we will debrief video and data of VIR again so we can really identify his weaknesses that we need to work through prior to COTA.

“But overall, it was a great weekend. We have been knocking on the top-five door for a while, and we finally got it and Will is in high spirits. The last race, he had one off that was induced by a move that was maybe not so kind from his good friend Kasey Kuhlman, but he didn’t let it faze him. He got back in the fight right away.”
Team driver coach Price Cobb, 1990 24 Hours of Le Mans winner, further elaborates Moore’s comments.

“The difficult thing for each of us to realize is that Will is so naturally gifted that he is already running at the front but without the years of experience and knowledge everyone else has picked up during those learning years,” Cobb said. “Because of this, when Will finds himself in a difficult position there is a much smaller knowledge base to draw from, which can be a severe hindrance for him. The end result is that we get frustrated for no other reason than we forget his remarkable climb is all him, but without the usual foundation. Once we give ourselves the reality check, all is good again.”

Hardeman demonstrated his quick learning ability by making rapid progress over the weekend. He bested his previous finish in each race, continuously building momentum to his top-five finish in the final 45-minute race of the triple-header weekend.

The beginning of the weekend started roughly for the Austin-based Moorespeed team Saturday, Aug. 22 in Round 11. Hardeman spun in Turn 5b, the rear of the car hitting the wall, causing significant exhaust damage and rear body damage. Hardeman continued but was black-flagged due to his rear bumper hanging off his car. The team quickly removed the loose pieces and sent Hardeman back into the race. Hardeman kept a level head and focused on finishing the race and working on his racecraft. He finished 13th in the Platinum Cup class.

After Round 11, Moore, Cobb and Hardeman studied data and video to prepare for the double-header Sunday. Moore then took Hardeman to various corners on the 17-turn, 3.27-mile circuit where he was having trouble and watched TUDOR United SportsCar Championship GT Daytona cars’ race lines. On Sunday morning, Hardeman shaved 1.4 seconds off of his lap time, turning a best lap of 1 minute, 51.592 seconds in Round 12.

Starting eighth in Round 12, Hardeman was running within the top 10 and working his way up the field before a spin under braking into the famed Oak Tree turn cost him a position. He finished ninth overall and in the Platinum Cup class.

“I’m not content where I ended up with over the weekend because I know I’m better than that, and I can do better,” Hardeman said. “But when I step back and look at myself from a global perspective, I’ve never been to the track and have never raced before this year, so I’m OK with how I did. Six months ago a top five would have been a great achievement. Today now that I’m looking at podium territory, I know I can do better.

“My fourth-place finish was due to technicality, not because of speed, necessarily. It’s very easy to advance through the back of the pack. Once you get to the front, it’s more competitive than ever. When I get to the podium positions, they’re going to be that much more gratifying.

“First and foremost, I want to thank my wife, Anna, for being there this weekend. She’s my rock. I get to have a clear and very calm mind because she’s there in support of me, and I have no worries. And I have to thank my team for providing me a perfect car and all the tools I need to be successful: coaching, mentoring and support.”

Moorespeed next will compete on its home track, Circuit of the Americas, Sept. 16-18 in Austin, Texas for Rounds 13 and 14 of the championship. Visit imsa.com for a full schedule.

Hardeman’s Homework Could Pay Off with Podium Visit at Road America 700 475 MOORESPEED

Hardeman’s Homework Could Pay Off with Podium Visit at Road America

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. Hardeman earned two second-place finishes at that event.

“We’ll be working on seat time and racecraft at Road America,” Moore said. “Before July 31, 2014, he had never even been in a race car. He’s progressing; he hasn’t plateaued yet. But he needs more seat time and more experience.

“I think podium is a realistic goal for him. He’ll have to work for it; no one is going to hand it to him. It takes skill, speed and time learning the track. He has to manage his equipment, but he’s got a good shot.”

To prepare for the Road America races, Hardeman and Moore have spent time studying data from the team’s race last year at the iconic Wisconsin track. They began reviewing that information immediately after the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama race in late June at Watkins Glen.

Taking studying beyond the numbers, Moore and Hardeman studied hours of video together, and Hardeman has turned countless laps of the 14-turn, 4.048-mile Road America circuit on a VRX racing simulator.

The more understanding of what to expect and what is expected, the better for Hardeman.

“It’s a long track, and there are key places to focus on,” Moore said. “We started getting ready the moment we left Watkins Glen, on the flight home watching video. At The Glen in Race 1, he was fast, but he made a rookie mistake letting two cars by at the exit of the bus stop. He didn’t have any spins or incidents afterward, gathered up his focus and ran some of the fastest laps in the race where he was purple in most all the sectors, finishing sixth. He could have easily been on the podium if it were not for the one mistake.

“Race 2 was a bust when the leader spun in front of him, damaging the left radiator and ending Will’s race. Then the make-up NOLA race that evening was canceled. That was a real bummer for us as we repaired the car, and Will was ready to go as he is very good in the rain.”

“We’ve gone over in-car data from last year’s Moorespeed drivers, and he’s spent a ton of time on the simulator so he has a visual in his mind when he gets on the track. We also watched a lot of video of Kevin Estre,Michael Lewis and Patrick Long together before and during simulation runs. Will has been studying very hard, and we feel confident that we have done our homework.”

The race week starts with a promoter test day Thursday, Aug. 6. Moorespeed General Manager Price Cobb, winner of the 1990 24 Hours of Le Mans, and standout professional driver Andy Lally will be on hand to help prepare Hardeman.

Round 9 takes place at 5:25 p.m. (CT) Saturday, Aug. 8, with Round 10 at 11:15 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 9.

Fans can follow the action on scoring.imsa.com, through live timing on the official IMSA app for iOS, Android or Windows or on Twitter with @IMSALive. Both races will be streamed live on imsa.tv.

Hardeman Takes Incredible Journey from Track Day to Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama 599 408 MOORESPEED

Hardeman Takes Incredible Journey from Track Day to Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama

IMSA News Release

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 braking and throttle application weren’t smooth. But Moore knows talent, and he saw something different in Hardeman. Something special.

“David said, ‘You know what? If you want to pursue this … You’re not doing any of the right stuff now, but I can tell there might be a diamond in the rough here,’” Hardeman said. “At least, we’ve got something to work with. He said, ‘I liked what you’re trying to do here, and I think we can take this and clean up your driving a lot, and you would definitely be a competitor, a force to be reckoned with, in IMSA.’He was talking one of these days, maybe two or three years.”

Try nine months. Hardeman, 33, persevered and learned through a warp-speed, intense regimen of training and testing in race cars with Moore, Moorespeed general manager and 24 Hours of Le Mans winner Price Cobb, and International Motor Sports Association TUDOR United SportsCar Championship standouts Andy Lally and Darren Law. Hardeman made his full-season racing debut this March in the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama at Sebring International Raceway, driving the No. 19 Wholesale Parts Direct (WPD)/Moorespeed Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car in the Platinum Cup class.

The rapid journey from a fun track day to lining up in the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama almost didn’t happen for Hardeman. He always has been around cars since he started working his family’s dealerships at age 13. Hardeman and his father even talked about going racing to Moore after seeing events in 2013 at COTA, with Moore trying to steer them into the proper development series.

 

Will Hardeman and David Moore

But Will Hardeman also knew racing required a major time commitment needed to devote to the craft of learning about the mechanical aspects of the car, technique and racecraft. Those are skills usually developed over years and decades, not months.

“That was the whole reason I never even dipped my toe,” Hardeman said. “I said, ‘I don’t have the time, and I don’t really want to go through that long road through all the schools all over the country.’ You’ve got to go through years of whatever two or three series until you get to Porsche Cup. I was thinking that could be five or 10 years down the road, and I have other things in my life I want to pursue.”

But the Hardemans and Moore continued to talk about fusing the dream and reality of racing. Last July, Moore told Will Hardeman’s father that Moorespeed had a lightly used Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Platinum Cup car available if his son was serious about going racing with the team.

Still, Will Hardeman had initial doubts. Then a quick spell of soul-searching changed his heart and mind. “My first reaction was: ‘Hey, I’m not ready for this. I’m way over my head. I can’t do this,'” Hardeman said. “Once the process popped into my head, I thought:

‘In 20 years, I’m going to more regret the things I didn’t do in life rather than the things I did do. And this is exactly the type of opportunity I need to take while I’m young and can learn things fast and am able-bodied and I can do this.'”

Game on. But the hard work was just beginning. The initial plan was to prepare Will Hardeman to make his Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama debut last September during the Lone Star Le Mans at his home track, COTA.

Moore, with help from Cobb, Lally and Law, started a magical motorsports tour of testing with Hardeman all over the southern third of the United States last summer and early fall. They turned laps at COTA, the Bob Bondurant School of High-Performance Driving and Road Atlanta, realizing the plan to be ready for COTA was a bit too ambitious.

Still, the work continued full speed. The training was a crash course. Literally, at times.

Hardeman had two major moments of doubt during the process, induced by crunched body work on his Porsche. He spun off at COTA in early August during his first proper test in his Platinum Cup car.

“It was a very, very minor incident but enough to shake my confidence,” Hardeman said. “I was wondering if the sport was right for me if this is going to happen a lot. You just have to get that out of your head. Price, David and Andy were there, and they’ve all had an illustrious career of wrecking cars in much more grandiose fashion. They said to get back in the saddle. That’s part of it.”

That confidence boost helped Hardeman get back on track for a test just before Labor Day at Road Atlanta, sharing the track with factory prototype and GT cars. Coaching and a pep talk from his racing mentors helped Hardeman avoid intimidation even though he was the slowest driver on the track.

And Hardeman’s zeal to rebound from the COTA incident and learn quickly caused him to watch and follow the racing lines of higher-performance machinery during the test. He followed a prototype into the fast, daunting Turn 1 at Road Atlanta and learned quickly that purpose-built race car had far more downforce than his production-based 911 GT3 Cup car.

Hardeman put two wheels off the grass and hit the tire barrier exiting Turn 1, damaging his car and confidence again.

But once again, Hardeman dug deep in his mind and used technical tips and confidence boosting from Moore and his other teachers to return to the seat, focused on his goal of becoming a race driver.

Those initial setbacks taught an important trait of motorsports Hardeman admits he didn’t understand before he started driving.

“The biggest thing that I underestimated about racing is how mentally demanding it is,” Hardeman said. “Your mind and your brain is a muscle, just like any other muscle in your body. You condition it to the mental demands of racing.

“At first, when you’re a guy off the street, you get into a race car for 15 minutes, and you are worn out for the rest of the day. Your mind is tired, and you don’t know what’s wrong with you. Even though you’ve got an eight-hour test day that you signed up for, after 30 minutes your mind has turned to mush. You can hardly work on anything productive, but you keep on pounding out those laps. That’s how I felt for probably the first four or five months.

“It got better and better. When you mind is mush like that, you’re not comfortable with the car yet. Driving a car at speed is not downloaded into the subconscious yet like it is with a pro who has had 20 years behind the wheel.”

Hardeman competed in a race for the first time in November at Daytona International Speedway. He showed the first glimpse of fulfilling the faith Moore showed in him during his COTA track day by winning his class in a one-hour HSR Historics race.

When Hardeman jumped on the podium to accept his trophy, the track public address announcer asked him for his racing background. Hardeman told the announcer this was his first race and first day at a competitive event. The announcer went silent, thinking Hardeman misunderstood the question.

Hardeman continued to test throughout the end of 2014 in various machines, learning and honing his craft. He also participated in the promoter test day before Petit Le Mans last fall at Road Atlanta, in the IMSA test in February 2015 at NOLA Motorsports Park and competed in another series in early March 2015 at COTA, preparing for his Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama debut two weeks later at Sebring.

His goals were simple: Running in the top 10 in the Platinum Cup in one of the most competitive of Porsche’s 20 single-make series around the world.

At Sebring, small mistakes and racing incidents dropped Hardeman toward the rear of the field in both races. But he ripped off some of the quickest laps of any driver in the field to rally to finishes of 15th and 12th, respectively. He also finished 12th in treacherous, wet conditions in early April at NOLA after turning the fourth-quickest time overall in practice.

Once Hardeman had time to reflect this spring on his incredible progress, he wasted no time setting new goals. Hardeman no longer is content with mid-pack or even top-10 results. He is aiming toward the top of the grid and would like to finish the season with three Platinum Cup podium finishes.

He still has miles to go, plenty to learn. But Moore, Cobb, Lally and Law have helped Hardeman do almost the impossible in racing, flattening a nearly vertical learning curve in almost record time.

“David and Price are the best in the business,” Hardeman said. “They are giving me so much personal attention. Their level of service is better than anything I’ve seen, even in my business.

“Price with his experience, he’s like Yoda. He will teach you so many things with fewer words. With Darren Law and Andy Lally, one cool thing is they’re world-class drivers, but I’ve worked with both of them so much over the last nine months. That’s a huge part of my success. I wouldn’t be in IMSA right now if I wasn’t working with Darren and Andy.

“They all have provided me with the setup, the equipment and the opportunity that is perfect. My success is now completely on me.”

With little experience, Austin racer sweeps Pirelli GT3 Cup weekend at Circuit of The Americas 630 449 MOORESPEED

With little experience, Austin racer sweeps Pirelli GT3 Cup weekend at Circuit of The Americas

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 Infiniti, Mercedes-Benz of Austin, First Texas Honda, Austin Subaru, Continental Collision and WPD “Wholesale Parts Direct”.

He started to consider becoming a race driver after driving Circuit of The Americas during a charity event in April. Team principal David Moore rode a few laps with Hardeman then and was impressed with what he saw.

“David said, ‘You’re not driving the right line or anything, but I can tell you like to drive fast and there might be something here,’ ” Hardeman said of those first laps. “He kept on bugging me about it, saying, ‘We should probably look at going racing, you might have something.’ He kept on bugging me about it until finally we broke down and said, ‘OK, we’ll let’s try this.’

Once the decision was made to go racing, Hardeman bought a used 911 GT3 and went to work. Moore said he started with education, sending Hardeman to the Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving outside of Phoenix. From there it moved on to track time and advice from professional racers like Darren Law and Andy Lally.

Hardeman’s first experience at Circuit of the Americas was in August, and it was clear he had a lot to learn. “The first time we were at COTA I think Andy and I made him crash because we were pushing him so hard,” Moore said. “I came off the track and tapped the wall,” Hardeman said. “That was my first experience with COTA.”

The coming months saw more track time and race experience, including competing in Historic Racing Series races in Daytona and Sebring in November and December, scoring victories and podiums along the way. “Frankly he had a lot more competition that weekend than he did this weekend,” Moore said of the Daytona event. “There were a lot of pro teams that were there getting ready for the 24 Hours of Daytona.”

In between, Hardeman was testing at tracks around the United States, getting more and more comfortable with pushing the car beyond his comfort zone.

“Part of this whole education is the lingo of how to communicate back and forth between the driver and the engineers on what the car’s doing,” Moore said. “We did a test back in December at MSR Houston for two days and that’s all we did: We would make a change, Will would go into the car and then we had Darren Law go into the car right behind him. But they wouldn’t talk to each other — they would write notes on what the car did and then we would compare notes: Sway bars, wings, ride height, all those types of changes.

“That was probably the turning point in his driving abilities,” Moore said. “To be able to convey what the car was doing and understand that you just don’t get in a car and drive fast.”

Hardeman said this weekend was the first time he truly felt comfortable in a racecar, even under wet conditions Sunday.

“What’s funny is my lap times back then in August were what I was running in the rain today, and I thought I was fast and out of control at a 2-and-a-half minute lap back in August,” Hardeman said. “I just focused on learning the wet lines, staying in the marbles and really avoiding the paint at all costs. The way I was driving it was a little bit smoother in the rain and conservative, but it was still good enough to take home a win, and that’s all that counts.”

Hardeman will be racing this season in IMSA’s Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA, starting in Sebring from March 18 to 20.

“I have a lot to learn and a lot of work to do, but I’m coming in with good momentum and a positive attitude,” Hardeman said. “IMSA is kind of the end of the road. If I can dominate there, we’ll see where it goes when we get there.”
