From the cockpit of Sharp’s Tequila Patron Honda Performance Development ARX-03b (say that three times fast) during practice for the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship race, the action is fast and, at times, precarious, thanks to GTD-class cars that loom like monster trucks from Sharp’s low-slung position.

It’s a manic, intense ride as Sharp weaves through traffic, ironing out the kinks before the race, which took place May 3-4. Sharp qualified third in the Prototype class with co-driver Ryan Dalziel with a lap time of 1:18.970, but unfortunately didn’t finish the race due to a gearbox issue early in Dalziel’s stint behind the wheel.

ESM Racing, Sharp’s team, saw success on the weekend, however, putting their other prototype car on pole thanks to a fast lap from Johannes van Overbeek. Overbeek and co-driver Ed Brown went on to win the overall victory in the race.
