We're back from Alton Virginia and the 24hrs of VIR race!  We got setup on Friday for practice laps, the car handled great and was fast.  Race start was 10am Saturday morning where the car again ran great on the south course.  At 5:30pm the course changed to the full course and rain/nightfall made things interesting.  Some severe thunderstorms rolled through about the same time as the course change which made things hairy.  We held through till the wee hours of the morning until an engine failure took us out of contention.  Race was very clean especially considering there were 84 cars on the grid.  

In all we logged 376 laps,  placing better than the top quarter of the pack until the failure.  Great,  exhausting, but fun race!

More information, video and pictures from the race will be posted on the VIR 24 - July 2011 page here
