NC Miata - would it run out of gas?

Hi,

 

Noticed that the NC Miatas are now 400pts, interesting.

 

But they still only have 12gallons? I would think they would run out of fuel. 

 

They have almost the same fuel capacity as the less powerful NB, would think they would run out of gas?

Alaskan Bullworms had a 96 lap stint a couple weeks ago, I dont know if that car has a cell, but thats a LONG time on a fuel run.

 

Is the question of the VPI points? I guess I dont understand

 

Edit:

Poor math skills.. lol

 

Carry on

In the interest of fairness, I looked through the speedhive results for the and found these laps for pitting:

Sat: 60, 136, 213, race end on 280
Sun: 61, 130, 176, race end (early?) 189

 

So I'm not sure where you pulled 96 laps, the most I see is 77 laps? Which is right about 2 hours based on their lap times.

On what track running what lap times? Stint length is best measured in time, not laps, as far as we are concerned.

Harris Hill.

 

It's mostly turns, no long WOT stretches. Fast cars might reach 100mph, typical car (miata) hits 90-95 mph and probably never below 40mph. 

 

So I guess it's a "fuel efficient" track?

See my post above, but at Harris Hill this team was running an average laptime of 95 seconds on saturday from lap 60 to 136 which was almost all green flag, minus a couple local yellow laps it appears. 76 laps x 95 seconds / 60 sec per min = 120.33 min. times pulled from speedhive csv.
