customer's Cayman R that is probably more of a true Cayman R now, than it
was when it was born. Jon Miller is providing instruction for my 3rd time
driving around Sebring; the former BGB Motorsports Grand-Am Porsche 911
pilot and current BGB Motorsports Cayman Club racing driver coach looks
after these Caymans and their drivers.

Ford GT40 Lapping at Sebring International Raceway (Onboard)
This is a 1966 GT40 model Mk.I doing some relatively low-speed test laps at

HPDE program, the car was in a mixed driver/vehicle group. Passing was
strictly limited to specific track locations and required a 'point by' from
the driver being passed. This car is Superformance chassis number

Registries. This particular car was featured in the March 2009 edition of

Go easy on us, this is the first blog we have ever done so it's not
perfect. This just discusses what the plans are for Patrick Wilmot and how
the Sebring Nationals went in early January. Enjoy!
Patrick Wilmot: 2013 Mitty Friday Race
We were supposed to start in row 7 but were put somewhere around 44th
position. Passed 21 cars in 7 laps and about halfway through you can start
seeing us having some braking issues. What an amazing race it was though
just being on track with these incredible cars.
8Legs Racing @ PBOC Winterfest - Shawn Lapping
Using the 8Legs Racing e36 328is for lapping in between races.
Was an awesome time crewing for them this summer (and winter), and being
allowed to do this made all the hard work worth it!
Patrick Wilmot: Road Atlanta March 2012
First few laps of the Sunday National at Road Atlanta in March of 2012.
Battling for 5th place before a caution red flagged the race. The team
would not return back on track after the caution due to a mechanical issue.
