Awesome day today! Passed my instrument check ride so now I can fly thru clouds ☁️! Thank you to everyone who has helped me along the way.

Did Grays and Torreys yesterday. This first one happens to be the best photo I have ever taken 🐐.

Nice day of flying around Yellowstone. Also had to yield to an f18 which was literally no issue at all.

This is a textbook "action shot" πŸ˜‚. Amazing job everyone; winners in Austria!! Everyone on the team played their part very well today, and our mechanics proved again their talent as we took the lead on the last pitstop! Not an easy race; competition was tough and every tenth counted for so much. Fortunately everyone pulled through with no mistakes. We are now 4pts behind the championship lead. #BeUnited

Racing tomorrow @redbullring. Starting 3rd and need a podium to keep in championship contention.

Just finished up an awesome IFR cross country training flight. Landed at Leadville (highest airport in North America) then headed to Pueblo, and then back to Centennial. View from the ground was not too bad, but even better in the sky!

Spent yesterday above the treeline in Breck with cousin @harryschris

Step 5: Finish 4th in LMP2 and 5th overall βœ… We were actually P5 in the running order but a car got disqualified so we moved up. All the mechanics, despite being up for 36+ hours, worked the race flawlessly. Can't thank you enough: Richard, Marc, JoJo, Lewis, Jon, Mitch, Gautier, and Romain (and so many more at the race that I can't mention like everyone at hospitality). Once again this experience has been incredible and I will remember it for the rest of my life; I am forever grateful for everyone who contributed to the race itself and making it happen. #BeUnited

Step 4: More meetings and prep, a crazy parade through downtown, and a nice United Autosports team dinner βœ… The reason I'm so excited in the first picture was because there was a guy with an American flag to the right! #BeUnited

Step 3: Qualifying and more press conferences βœ… We qualified 15/25 for the race despite really struggling with straight up pace. Our car is very easy to drive though which is critical for the race. All I can say now though is there is no way to describe how it feels to be going 200 mph down Mulsanne straight at night. It doesn't even feel real; more like some kind of crazy video game. And when in Porsche corners at more than 3.5 lat G, there is no capacity to think of anything but that moment. Very grateful for this experience so far, and can't wait for the race.
