This is why we were taking it easy at the end of the COTA 24H!

The two drive pins that could! You’re looking at the rear hub from our Mercedes GT3 that we won COTA with. Presumably because us drivers were being a bit spirited with the curbing and @cota_official being tough on the car in general we were losing a drive pin every few hours (you can see where they sheared off). With 6-7 hours remaining these were the only two left, and they held on!
What an incredible team win it was and I hope to defend it next year!
NYD spent cutting down a bunch of trees around the new house. Lots of work, but I didn’t cut off any appendages with the chainsaw, so yay!
Happy New Year, everyone! Drive home safe! The Uptown fireworks were pretty disappointing, so we made our own loud noises.
We had some excellent >60*F weather in Charlotte yesterday...it was great to get a few miles in on the bike (and play with the new GoPro).
Happy Holidays everyone! For those of you bored and playing with new TVs, here’s some content to digest. Visit my YouTube channel for some footage from Europe last year! Link in bio.
Can’t have nice things. I didn’t plan on mudding in the backyard, but old tires don’t get through wet, soft grass very well. Oops
Had some fun playing with NASA-SE at Road Atlanta this weekend. Great rain driving yesterday, and beautiful weather today. Loved this 335d-swapped wagon on the right—150+ on the back stretch!
Congrats to @nataliedecker for being selected as a W Series Qualifier! It has been great to work with her as she learns the ropes in road racing. She’s working hard on being a well-rounded driver and deserves this opportunity. #repost ・・・
I am so honored to have been selected as a W Series Qualifier and am super excited to meet these amazing talented race drivers!! @wseriesracing link in their bio for more information 💕
Pretty nice Beetle...playin in the rain at VIR today! #porsche #porsche911 #carrerat #blackandwhite
Just under 4 hours to go and we are currently leading by about 3 laps. Crossing our fingers and taking it easy on the car now!
Looks like a wet start to the race today. Yelmer will take the reigns in P2 and start making up time to the leading #911.
Things going well here running in the Top 3 with 5 hours into the race. Yelmer just got back in the car and will push forward even more.
Going well here at COTA with the Black Falcon Mercedes-AMGs running 1-2 in first practice. Tune in at 24hseries.com for live streaming of qualifying at 5:45 eastern, followed by night practice at 7pm. Look for the race at 11:30am Saturday and again at 9am Sunday (all times eastern).
About to hop on a plane to go see this lady. Should be easy to see us on TV!
It’s race week! I am very happy to announce that I will be joining Team Black Falcon in the #3 Mercedes-AMG GT3 for the Hankook 24 Hours of Circuit of the Americas. I will join my friends Bret Curtis and Scott Heckert, alongside a new team mate in Yelmer Buurman. Practice will start on Thursday and I will have more information for you this week on how to watch!
Been here many times, first time in the stands. Doing some coaching up top on the spotter stand today.
Happy Halloween. Beautiful day here in #CLT
