The Big Engine that Could

They picked the right car! This will be interesting.

Winding Road race team attacking the 25 hours of Thunderhill in a Boss 302S (and looking for money) :)

They've had that car "in development" since early this year. I wish them well but I need to kickstart my own race budget, if you catch my drift.

Upon closer inspection, they have some cool "reward" items available...

I understand. I wasn't advocating for donations but will be interested to see how the car fares. Any opinions?

I think it will come down to the drivers and pit crew. The 302S is reliable enough to make it 25 hours. The real question is how much refurbing they'll have to do after this event.

Yep, I catch it. Maybe you need to jump on the crowdfunding bandwagon.

Cool. I'm hoping to hang out there on Saturday this year.

I'll be coming through that area at about that time. I don't know what the chances are but I'd love to be there.

I'm not sure where you're coming from but TH is about 100 north of Sacramento where I live. Thunderhill isn't as nice as MMP but for the enthusiast it's a nice facility and they've made quite a few improvements over the years. The new addition should make it the longest track in the US.

I believe the entries list says that they're from Texas.
