Track Preperations for the Endurance Race

Testing out the lights as darkness falls over the racetrack.
As dusk was falling, the crew at KRP used the opportunity to test out the corner lighting system. With only three days until the race, major improvements have been underway! The timing and scoring system received an upgrade, with a new display with more information for the drivers/teams. Also, a pit stop bridge was added for the use of fuel mileage racing during this endurance race. With a new race format this year, anything is possible!

The track opens for practice on Saturday, January 28th at 5:00 PM, with racing to start at 7:30. Preliminary information points to 4 to 5 teams participating this year, putting us at about a 5 hour race length though each team will only race for 3 hours total. Can all teams make it through the event without any mechanical or electrical issues? It's a grueling 3 hour race, because if you relax your opponents won't be.
