I had the brilliant opportunity in July of...
Rearden Racing’s foray into the 14th edition of the NASA 25 Hours of Thunderhill (2016) started with Vesko Kozarov at the wheel, taking the green flag after qualifying the car at fourth position in the E0 class, and 20th overall from a massive field of 65 pro-level starters.Vesko opened with a triple stint spanning the first three hours of the race. His stint, however, did no go untroubled, as he had contact in the opening hour, forcing car #33 to make an unscheduled pit stop. Team owner and driver Lara Tallman took the wheel next, but the initial bad luck didn’t stop there as Lara also made a few unscheduled stops, dropping team Rearden even further down the running order. Afterwards, Lara was able to claw back some time with her consistent driving.
With tickets and hotel booked to a seminar in Fort Lauderdale, I also took the opportunity to contact Porsche Centre Trinidad and Porsche Latin America to see if I could review a few of their cars while out on this trip. I drafted my itinerary for the seven-day trip and was absolutely over the moon when they said that I could have both the Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid and the Porsche Boxster GTS (feature here) for a few days each to drive and evaluate!
