We have to look at the short term for existing events. Now that we are learning about what works and what doesn't, we can better plan future events. Don't think that 24s will go away in the west. It's just in the near term, changing this race to a multi-day enduro works so we don't lose the date. We have basically doubled the participants by the change.

could run two races at once.   8 hours and a 24 that just doesn't stop.   have different prices.  cars in the 24 can win in either race just to make it fun.  IF not enough people sign up for 24 they are converted down to the double 8.

Next year we will have the VIR Classic, and Nelson Ledges 24 hour events. 

How many hours is Indy going to be?

I told Mike I'm still going so I can complain for two days about the revised format. 

 

He jousted right back back at me. I think we will get along just fine.

Yeah.... you didn't sign up for Buttonwillow.... what's your excuse? Too long of a tow? 

 

The excuse reason is a 24 hour one way tow, half my team is unavailable that weekend, and Buttonwillow is a track that 1/2 of my team is just not that excited about driving so I doubt we would show up there, maybe with the expansion though.  My team is revved about Vegas which is only an 18 hour tow, we will sign up for that one along with Docspeed.

I hear you on the tow; it's why we don't go up to the PNW. Thunderhill is about as far north as we have gone. Is Thunderhill an option for a 24-hour? Trying to think of a track that more people could get to for a 24.... Which begs the question...what is the criteria for a good 24-hour track? One of the complaints about Buttonwillow is that at night you can't tell the dirt from the track. It's not a lighted track and some of us were going to get some reflective tape and mark the entry, exit, and apex of each turn. Lights are expensive to run - only pit lane at Vegas is lighted - the inside course is dark but there is reflective paint for the turns (IIRC). Correct me if I am wrong. 

 

And you will love, love, love the Roval.... not sayin'; just sayin'. And as Bill says... SIGN UP NOW.

Thunderhill's fuel pump situation is awful for an endurance race.  

 

You have to drive for fuel at Buttonwillow as well. Remember, you can't keep the neighbors up. So tracks have to be out in the middle of nowhere for a 24.... Truth? Not truth?

Vegas is going to be outside loop is it not?

 

Thunderhill 24????  My team is in for Thunderhill, long tow again but a 24 certainly makes it worthwhile.

 

Criteria for a track to hold a 24?  Neighbours.  Spokane has a jail for neighbours so I guess the residents don't want to waste their one call per day on complaining about noise.
