Factory TCR Racer Makes For A Brilliant Enduro Chassis

This recent article by Brett Becker on nasaspeed.news caught our attention, as we think it’s a great scenario. Take a factory-built Audi RS3 TCR car, turn the power down, tune it for NASA WERC, have a great shop like Strom Motorsports support and co-drive, and win a bunch of races in the E0 class in 2019.

Floridian Throwback: The 1970 Sebring 12 Hour

In celebration of this year’s upcoming Mobil 1 Twelve Hours Of Sebring Presented By Advance Autosports in March, we thought this throwback would be fun to share: a 22-minute documentary detailing how the race went down back in 1970.

Like Clockwork: BMW Team RLL Scores Second Win At Daytona In GTLM

BMW Team RLL ran one heck of a race at Daytona over the weekend. It was great watching the lumbering-yet-limber #24 M8 battle it out with the #912 and #911 Porsche 911 RSRs, because on paper one would expect the high-winning-ratio factory RSRs to make quick work of it.

This Weekend: The 2020 Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour!

If you aren’t too worn out from watching endurance racing all last weekend, this upcoming weekend is the 2020 Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour! Not to be confused with the Bathurst 1000 which historically takes place every October, the 12 Hour is by far one of our favorite endurance events, as it’s a great preview of the season for manufacturers’ efforts in GT3 and GT4.

The Perfect Accompaniment To This Weekend: 2019 Rolex 24 At Daytona

It looks like there isn’t much on TV this weekend as far as racing goes, sports fans, so why not brush up on all the action that went down at last year’s Rolex 24 at Daytona?

The Case For GT2

GT3 has overgrown its original intention. Every year the cars are increasing in speed, cost, and physical prowess needed to propel them to victory. With each new car, a factory program comes included by default, and the chances of an amateur driver achieving victory diminishes. GT2 is now the place for these drivers to thrive.

Balance Of Performance Vindicated At Le Mans?

Fear Of BOP Can Cost You

Last weekend, racers who watched saw a very close 24 Hours of Le Mans. The presence of some balance of performance (BOP) system was a strong indicator of whether we were treated to close racing.

World Racing League Offers a New Amateur Endurance Racing Alternative

It’s not every day we get to report on the founding of a new option for amateur racing. So it’s with a fair bit of excitement that we bring you news of the World Racing League, a recently founded sanctioning body which seems to bridge the gap between the “almost anything goes” fast and loose style of ChumpCar and the 24 Hours of LeMons endurance leagues and the costlier options from sanctions like SCCA and NASA.

25 Hours Of Thunderhill Blog: The Car

Choosing a car for a major race, in reality, is a complex affair. No offense to those of our beloved readers who will be aghast at our selection process, but if you’re doing it from your armchair it is a whole lot easier. Because, in reality, you have to actually take practical matters into consideration. For example, you have to consider time – how much you have personally to work on the car and how much calendar time there is before the race. And, of course, there is the issue of money. In your armchair, you can spend OPM (Other People’s Money) rather freely. In the real world, not so much.

25 Hours Of Thunderhill Blog: The Why and The What

The thing is, when you come right down to it, we like epic events. Consider the Olympics, the Iditarod, the 24 Heures Du Mans (or substitute your favorite large scale competition here) and you find — for the right kind of slightly crazy person — that a chill runs down your spine. And, at times, you find yourself thinking “I’d like to try that.”
