Longest I've raced is 30 min mains. If I wasn't at the other end of the u.s. as you that would be a pretty cool experiance.

Yea, those 40 min. mains at Lance's track are tough! Especially at Nitro Fest when Adam Drake has a few laps on the rest of the field (LOL)!!!!!!!

I've done a few hour long A's and a whole host of 30's and 45's..

There's a 3 hour endurance race in Beaumont, CA every January, and it's not bad. 12 sounds like a good time!

This Sunday at TRCR in Washington is one of the twice-annual 10 hour electric races.

30 minutes....Right now that's is about enough for me. I know some people that would love a 12 hour!

Wow, a 12 Hour race sounds super long. Do you eat during the race? How about relieving yourself?

Anyways I've never raced but it sounds like fun. Let us know what happens

oh ya
if u check the rules it says that there has to be 5 drivers per. team. so the guys drive an hour and switch off. i think that one person from the team will marshal at all times. but i cant wait, its saturday.
