      I'd imagine the laps will get closer after the full lap rotation. If not, its going to be a long 24hr for some people......

        Any chance of an hourly report.

        It would be fun to see how the race is progressing.

        We usually post every hour to keep the interest from those who could not attend. Then a little gossip like who broke or crashed or something along those lines.

        So who's in first!!!

          Team Slingshot is in a commanding lead at this point. Their car is running well with maybe just a touch of gear noise to be heard. Team Slot Car Corner's car is running well also. During Kurt's heat in the black lane he put up a frighteningly fast bunch of laps together.

          Team Ninco's Ford is running well with our Dallara running along quite smoothly behind it. The last place Ford GT GLSCC has had some issues with chassis breakage and a few trips to the floor of Mid America. Their car has had to pit a few times with the chassis issue.

          We're all in good spirits. And things are loose here at the track. We're talking and enjoying the evening... I don't think anyone's really looking forward to the overnight though.

          The overachiever team... cough... Team Slot Car Corner has a laminated drivers schedule.

              A post an hour keep people looking.

              Thanks Dave, I really appreciate your posting.

              Looks like SlotCar Corner had a little problem with an almost 90 second worse lap. Any news about that?

              Slingshot a 30 second worse lap, Driver changes?

                What happens there, chassis breakage.

                Can you change the chassis, without looking I can't remember, but I think you can right?

                Body has to be the same one if I remember right.

                It is good to get a few even one line posts, also thanks for the shot of the screen.

                Also if anyone can post the hourly standings, it will be of a big interest to Maurizio who is watching.

                Thanks again.

                  Mark dude, you need a haircut.

                  That must be the Winter Look.

                    You probably can, Alan, but I'll bet that if you look it will go much quicker.

                    Dave, thanks for the reports, keep up the feed! Forgive my ignorance, but are you merely a bystander, or on one of the teams, there? Who is making up each team there? And like that!

                      Thanks Dave. Putting a picture of the scoring screen up works really well. Your description of who's been driving and the condition of the cars helps get a better picture of what's happening too. So, has Jeff said anything about being on schedule to break the record? BTW, I know that feeling of watching Mark, Jon, George, Jason, Doug and Sean (even Kurt, though not as often), team Slingshot, drive off into the distance. Happens to me a couple of times each week. Yeah, those guys are good!

                      To answer one of your earlier questions, Alan, we recently ran one of the GrandAm proxy races on George's track, and three of the four top finishers were all from the guys in the Slot Car Corner team, but Mark has gone quicker than any of them with the car the Slingshot group are racing. The cars are good too!

                        Quick math.

                        Looks like they are on pace to do about 220 miles how many do they need?

                            Was it the clear acrylic chassis that broke on the GLSCC Ford GT?

                              Images by magic.

                              Let's see if this works

                                long way to go!

                                Thanks for the reports. Long night and ahead and there will be the "unexpected". I keep thinking about the most recent Rolex @ Daytona. Take your vitamins boys.................. Mcmannix
