This year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans wasn’t just incredible for being unusually carnage-heavy on its flagship prototype class. The LM GTE Pro class full of production-based race cars was anybody’s game until the very end, with the most insane final laps I’ve seen all year.
One class at Le Mans came down to an absolutely nail-biting finish: LM GTE Pro. No. 63 Corvette Racing driver Jordan Taylor was playing a successful game of keep-away from the No. 97 Aston Martin of Jonathan Adam—only, Taylor threw that lead away when he short-cut a chicane and damaged the Corvette.
Few racing drivers amuse us quite as much as Wayne Taylor Racing driver Jordan Taylor. Not only has his team been dominating this year’s WeatherTech Sports Car Championship season, but he’s known for hilarious pranks, one very good dog and he’s LIVE with us now to answer any questions you have for him!
What would you like to ask Cadillac racer, prankster and good dog owner extraordinaire Jordan Taylor? He’s been unbeatable this season in the WeatherTech Sports Car Championship and shared a car with Jeff Gordon for 24 Hours of Daytona. You can ask him anything you want TODAY at 2:30 p.m. ET.
Who’s a good boy? Fonzie’s a good boy. Here, drink out of Cadillac DPi-V.R racer Jordan Taylor’s 24 Hours of Daytona trophy. Awwwww, that’s a good doggo.
It’s National Puppy Day, which means it’s an excuse to look at cute pups on the internet. Recent Daytona 24 winner Jordan Taylor’s very good dog has become a racing star in his own right: Fonzie, a big puffy Goldendoodle. Enjoy these clips of Taylor jamming out with Fonzie because these two are just the best.
As I type, Mercedes Replacement Watch is in full swing. Nico Rosberg’s departure left a gaping hole in Mercedes’ Formula One line-up well after most top teams chose their drivers for 2017. While the latest rumors involve poaching Williams driver Valtteri Bottas, I think there’s another driver who needs the attention…
WeatherTech Sports Car Championship prototype driver and former bearer of the greatest mullet in motorsports Jordan Taylor showed up to a series test at Daytona disguised as a selfie-taking fan. Some of his fellow racers caught on to his shenanigans pretty fast, but others? Not so much!
The low, rumbling howl of the Corvette C7.R’s V8 engine is amazing in its own right, but I think the mating call that summons them may just be slightly more amazing.
Everyone knows Jordan Taylor has a huge heart for fluffy friends, so when I spotted him pop out of the car at Lone Star Le Mans, I handed Fluffy Bunny over for a brief photo op. Surprisingly, Jordon let Bunny do the #JTfacial this time, and was caught by the TV broadcast to prove it!
Only 0.477 seconds separated Wayne Taylor Racing from the number 31 Action Express car at today’s Tudor United SportsCar race at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park*. Here’s how one mistake made the end of the race go from an easy win for Action Express to an insane battle for the top of the podium.
If there’s one thing Corvette Racing’s Jordan Taylor loves, it’s his dog Fonzie. Fonzie, unfortunately, had to stay at home for the 24 Hours of Le Mans. So, one group of fans brought him a stand-in Fonzie. I’m pretty sure this is how Corvette Racing won Le Mans—with awwwww.
Many motorsport events claim to take over towns and cities, but very few actually do take over an entire city centre for a drivers parade, nor will certain other motorsport events allow the fans to get so close to the drivers en masse away from the racetrack and on the city streets without them surrounded in a thick…
The end of the 24 Hours of Le Mans was so stressful for Jordan Taylor that he hid in the bathroom for the end of the race. His Corvette Racing team was chasing AF Corse’s #51 Ferrari in GTE Pro until #51 had to come in for a half-hour’s worth of repairs, at which point, it was Corvette’s race to lose.
This seems like a bad idea, good sir. That being said, the next time United SportsCar racer Jordan Taylor goes missing, all we have to do is look for the swimming gear in the pile of branches.
Turns out, the Wayne Taylor Racing team actually did go over the maximum time allowed for team member Jordan Taylor to drive in the last hours of the Rolex 24 at Daytona. IMSA announced today that they will move WTR to last place in the Prototype class results for the violation.
While part of me is a little disappointed that folks are just going back to their RVs to nap like normal, boring human beings instead of passing out at random spots in the paddock, I can't be disappointed in these pajamas. Are your pajamas this cool? The motorsports nap game just got pwn'd.
