9/30/17 and 10/01/17 World Racing League revisited Brainerd International Raceway for two endurance races, 8 hours on Saturday and 7 hours on Sunday. I was racing with FlatLine Performance, a 1995 Honda Civic with a base Inetrega swap, no VTech, and a welded front differential.
Saturday I started, we got gridded last. I had a great start and got three places before the 3rd turn! I came in after a few laps because of low power, turns out the throttle cable was coming undone. Went back out for another 20 laps or so, and limped the car in with a busted axle. In 22 minutes we swapped it, threw another 5 gallons of gas in and I went back out. Turns out the shifting to 5th gear in this car before turn to costs at least a second in lap times, but adds about 15 minutes per stint.We had to swap rear tires do to the driver side rear tire having extensive wear on the outer edge. The tire change went wrong and the wheel fell off one lap later!! DOH!!! We managed to get 3rd in class.
Sunday it was cold and rainy. Used tires on all four corners defiantly hurt our lap time and driver confidence. Our 2nd driver came in with a bad axle, this time the swap only took 14 minutes! Due to the rain, and 10 second per lap slower times (less fuel consumption) we were able to stretch our stints to do only three driver changes. I came in for a 5 gallon splash during a full coarse caution, and finished out the race doing something like 63 laps in 2.5 hours.
