I would like to participate in this event, so if any team needs another member, I'm available. And if you need another driver, I might be able to do that, too. :D

Toss my hat in the ring alongside Mike as someone team shopping. I've been having a pretty good year in enduros so this would be the next mountain to climb. ^_^

While there are still various sponsor and contractual details to be ironed out, it appears I have a ride. See you in August!

I am trying to get a team together, but it doesn't look promising.

Has anyone ever used a split stint driver rotation, where two drivers divide a stint in half between them? The reason I'm asking is that when I raced in this event before, my hand & fingers start cramping up about 12 minutes into the stint. If I only have to drive 11-1/2 minutes, then I should be able to deliver better results, and be recovered for the next stint. Thoughts?

As long as all drivers on the team get about the same track time it shouldn't be a problem.

Bill is correct. All members of the team have to drive as close as possible to the same amount. Don't much matter how that happens although each team does have to present a "batting order" to the race director.

Bill, Mike, thanks for the replies.

 

To be honest, I'm just planting the seeds for my excuse when I have a brain fart (or 2) during my stints. :D

That would make for an interesting wrinkle. Designate a "pit" in front of the driver stand and have the driver change occur under green. lol

Another good day of racing at TTH, as usual the crew at TTH put on a well run event, track was good food was great and the hospitality is second to none. A good win for Team R-Geo as they had to fight back from major damage. The top 3 were all locked in a tight race for quite a while with lead changes going back and forth.

Finishing order was R-Geo, Big 3, Tom Thumb, Grizzley. FEAF, Tri State, Misfits. All teams had there share of troubles some a little more than others.

Thanks to Steve Koepp and Parma for race prizes and thanks to my team mates Gary and Jason Echelbarger, and Mike Patterson for a great run.
