"A gentleman does not motor about after dark" - George Lucas
In the Spirit of the Prince of Darkness, Tunachuckers are contemplating entering the full 24 this September at Carolina Motorsports Park- but with a twist. The race is set to kick off at 11AM Saturday, and run until 11AM Sunday. Our plan is to park the car at approximately 9:30PM Saturday, and resume racing at 7AM Sunday. Thus, we will avoid motoring about in darkness, and also, coincidentally, manage to get the same amount of track time as would normally be run during the regular fall race (typically around 14.5 hours).
In addition to parking our car during the wee hours, we'll be setting up camp in the back part of the paddock, far away from the garage and track, to minimize noise and interference with Real Racers who will be red-mistedly turning laps at all hours.
I'll be cross-posting this to the unofficial Facebook 24 HoL group; any other teams interested in joining our scheme? I'm open to suggestions on tweaking the hours, too- maybe start a bit earlier on Sunday or end a little earlier on Saturday. Any other ideas we should consider?
