When teams register have one driver register through MSR and then list the team members that are driving with them under “Designated Essential Crew List” along with their email address and phone number.
+ Intermediate: Restricted Passing Zones with point by
+ Advanced: Pass anywhere with a point by
+ Unrestricted Advanced: Pass anywhere, no point by, (this group is typically for our Licensed Competition Drivers)
Each run group gets 30 min sessions and an hour at the end of the day. The hour at the end of the day is structured like our Advanced group ( pass anywhere with a point by)
Intermediate gets 4 sessions 30min sessions, Advanced and Unrestricted Advance get 5 30min sessions, and all 3 get to participate in the happy hour (Final Count Down) at the end. This gives drivers up to 3.5hours of test and tune time!!
We do allow teams to share a car in the same run group. There is special pricing if the teams want to run in two or all three groups (as long as they follow the rules in the group they are in at the time).
I look forward to meeting you and working with you!!
Stay safe and fast!

Limited edition VIR24 t-shirts will be available at registration. First come first sold.

 

 

 

Very cool shirt design!  Whoever is designing these is doing a great job.

 

In the future would it be possible to have the design on the back and the small champcar logo on the left chest?  Maybe take a poll on it?

I bought one at Road Atlanta and love the design, but the large graphic is not very bendable and when placed on the chest makes it a bit uncomfortable to wear.

Either way, keep em coming!

I like the back designs / left chest too. Next year I will move to those.

VIR garage rental question: if I book starting Friday, do I need to book Fri-Sun or Fri-Mon because the race ends at Noon on Sunday? I will probably be on the road to drive back south by 3pm, but I assume "checkout time" ends prior to that since the website it books through is more like a hotel booking.

Garage Move-Out time is like 4pm. You'll be fine w/ Fri-Sun.

Seriously, every 24 we do I learn something, last time I figured out how to get more sleep, I did miss a few little things from 4am till 9 but was ready and rested to take over from the guys that ran dawn/morning shift

Last time we all figured out how to get some more sleep!

 

2-3 hours of mine was on the pit box cuz the rest of the team left me when the restart attempts were put on hold.

Busting my tail this week making structural weld repairs to both cars after the diff mount ripped out at CMP.  Fingers crossed my transmission guy comes through with a trans rebuild in the next week or so, need to get it installed in time for testing.

 

Its been almost long enough to forget how tough it is to survive a 24 hour race, so I am starting to look forward to this.  That "fog" break last year really was nice, so low odds it comes again this year right?  Lets not let Bill get started looking for the "R" word anytime soon

 

Speaking of, if anyone is on the fence about coming, we could definitely use some crew help.  I can offer food, beer, a cool trailer to crash in, and a good time.

I'll be there with some crew. Ask Bill/Dana to pit us together and we'll do what we can to help you.
