Though new to Porsches race cars, Hardwick has amassed an exceptional amount of experience in his very short sports car racing career. In his first year of competition, he earned the runner-up championship in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo World Final, only to best that with both the Lamborghini Super Trofeo World Championship and SRO America Championship in 2018. In 2019, the 1st Phorm athlete campaigned the first five IMSA WeatherTech Championship events, earning a podium at Mid-Ohio SportsCar Course.

Returning to Wright Motorsports for another year of competition, Porsche Factory driver Patrick Long will continue to race with the fan favorite Porsche team. The three-time ALMS GT champion also holds three Pirelli World Challenge titles, and currently has an impressive 27 wins in IMSA, placing him in the top 25 of over 1,000 drivers to earn at least one victory in the series over the years. Long’s impressive resume, combined with his longstanding relationship with team owner John Wright will give the team a strong upper hand against the rest of the competition in the GTD class in 2020.

Imperato is entering his fifth consecutive season with the Ohio-based team. In addition to three seasons of driving Wright Motorsports-prepared Porsche 911 GT3 Cup cars to success, the New Yorker has spent the last year getting to know the Porsche 911 GT3 R, having run the previous model in two SRO America events. With four podiums in the four 2018 races he contested, Imperato looks to keep the momentum rolling, alternating with Porsche aces Dumas and Campbell.
