"Drivers often receive more praise than we deserve. Endurance racing is a Team not a Driver's race. No single person wins it and any member can cause the loss. Win Endurance races by clicking off laps and staying out of the pits, not damaging or killing the equipment. It's nice, but you don't have to be the fastest driver on the track." -Hal Prewitt

Our Mitt Romney STORY has been read by millions of people. We have written about what have we learned and heard from readers and why there are so many Democrats and others who are not supporting President Obama for reelection.
Read it here .
Sept 21-23, 2012 - Silverstone, England-- Raced at the Silverstone Circuit in the Britcar 24 Hour and drove the Lotus Evora GT4 for Marcos Racing International. Other drivers were Cor Euser, Martin Rich, Alistair MacKinnon and Jim Briody. The No. 26 Drink Florida Orange Juice did not finish after driving 261 laps and a time of 11:42:38. Result was 9th in class and 27th overall out of 33 cars. After taking 3rd place last year, we were the car to beat but luck was not with us for this race. We were the fastest in class with lap of 2:15.985 and started 8th on the grid P1 in class. 6 laps in, Alistair experienced a right front suspension failure that required 50 mins to repair. This knocked us back to last place and about 30 laps behind. Returning to the track, the car, drivers and crew were performing well until near the 12 hour mark. We had climbed back to P2 in class and 6th overall when the transmission failed while on my in lap for fuel and a second stint. Crew could not make the repair.
I did a live video broadcast just after the start of the race for the What the World Doesn't Know About Dyslexia event at the The Key Learning Center in the Carolina Day School, Asheville, NC. It was an honor to talk with and answer quesions from the students, teachers and parents. They showed a video on my history and 24 hours of Barcelona race. Special thanks go to the students for the invite and to our Crew and the Lotus Factory for support and sponsorship of this race.
Sept 8-9, 2012 - Barcelona, Spain-- Raced at the Circuit de Catalunya in the 24 hours of Barcelona. I drove the Lotus Evora GT4
for Marcos Racing International. Other drivers were Jim Briody, Henk van Zoest, Dirk Schulz and Alister McKinnon. At the finish, the No. 21 Drink Florida Orange Juice
had the 3rd fasted class lap of 2:01.967 and after 532 laps Podium 3rd in SP3 and 33rd overall out of 51 cars.
For this race, luck was not on our side. Had to start from the pits after everyone passed due to a problem. The BMW M3s were quicker cars and the best we could do was P2 in class and 9th overall at the 13 hour mark when more problems knocked us back. Over the next 11 hours lost more than 1 1/2 hours to the car stopping on the track and other issues. Did get to shoot a video on the race and my history at the request of The Key Learning Center at Carolina Day School, Asheville, NC to be shown at their What the World Doesn't Know About Dyslexia event on Sept 22, 2012.
Aug 16th, 2012 - Miami Beach - "The Mitt Romney we know - Insight into the man". Corinne and I have released a story to the public & press. It has gone viral. When you read it the reason will become clear. We bought Mitt Romney's home and have an insight into the man & his family few others have. Private details, how he acted out of public view and when not running for office. Mitt Romney is very different from the man that many Americans have been led to believe. Not all, but many people will be surprised and amazed.
No one can say with absolute certainty what kinds of decisions a president will make while still a candidate for that office. To predict, we only have access to their words, history and if available the most useful facts of all, how they act out of public view and when they are not running for office. This is why our story is so important, valuable and must be told. No doubt some will want to dismiss our story or argue that it is not newsworthy nor relevant. However, we hope our voters are given the opportunity to hear the truth, especially when the facts directly contradict what many people think to be true.
Our story was written and became public after Democratic, Republican and Independent voters recommended and found it valuable. We are messengers, delivering facts. We were not Mitt Romney supporters nor anti-Obama. The facts do change who we support. Regardless of who any of us are supporting in the presidential election, we all are better served by knowing the truth. This story was not approved by Mitt Romney or his campaign as these are Corinne & Hal Prewitt's words and the efforts to publish are our own.

May 19-20th, 2012 - Nurburg, German - Raced in the
24 Hours of Nurburgring in a Porsche Cayman R-PDK for Mathol Racing. The No. 231 Drink Florida Orange Juice finished on the Podium 3rd in the V6 class of 11 and 44th overall out of 170
cars after 129 laps and the quickest of 09:54.630. Hal started and drove 2 single and double stints, for about 6+ hours of the race.
Our excellent and highly skilled 3 other drivers were from Germany; Andreas (Andy) Weishaupt, Jochen (Joe) Herbst and Daniel (Dan) Schwerfeld.
Ours was a highly competitive field with the BMWs able to turn better laps. While this was the car's 1st 24hr, we made it the fastest Cayman. Weather for the week was between low 30s to 70F, rain, sleet and hail with some sun.
Race is started in 3 groups. We began in 5th row of third group and qualified P6 out of 11 cars. Our race was incident free with only a few minor problems and the normal racing exciting moments.
This is one of world's largest GT and touring endurance races and is held on the Nurburgring
Nordschleife (the 22.835km north loop) and F1 tracks. Due to the weather, attendance was on the lite side, maybe 1/4 million fans and gads more on TV and the internet.

of the 24h race.
Jan 26-29, 2012 - Daytona Beach, Florida USA-- Raced at the 50th anniversary of the Rolex 24 at Daytona. Hal drove in #12 Porsche GT3 997 Cup for Alliance Autosport in near 6 hours of the 24. Other drivers were
Jon Miller, Matt Schneider, Darryl Shoff and Scott Rettich. Was a hard and unlucky race for our Team's first Rolex 24.
We caused the 1st yellow of the race when the cultch failed in the 2nd hour. After making repairs we had dropped to nearly last place.
A few hours later, after runing quick laps and working back up the leader-board, we had another problem. Saturday evening,
Matt was pushed by another Porsche hard into the wall at 160 mph while rounding NASCAR turn 2.
Not giving up and after a few hours of repairs
we were driving again. But in Hal's late night stint, he reported the car had high-speed stablity issues and had to be brought in
for additional adjustments. Luckily, the team's run of bad luck was over and all the hard work paid off with the car running the next 15 hours
flawlessly. We moved up from nearly last to finish 28th in class and 41st of 58 cars.
"Obviously we would have liked to have finished higher up the finishing order, but the team and my co-drivers put in a tremendous effort,"
stated Alliance Autosport Driver Scott Rettich. "It was unfortunate that someone blew a tire and hit us on the banking. Over the entire 24 hour
race that was the only contact we had with another car. Without that on track incident I think we could have easily finished in the top 15."
Hal congratulates John Pew in DP #60, his 2006 Daytona 24 hour co-driver for winning this year's race.
