When should we expect a response to an email we sent for this event?

When will we know if we are needed?

Just trying to figure out how much time I would have to put plans in place if I need to get out to Cali.

Thanks for all the inquiries. We're going through all the emails, deciding who can fit into what part of our schedule. We'll try to get feedback to everyone that has contacted us as soon as we can.

I set aside vacation time for this specific weekend. I called dibs on the coffee/sandwich maker duty but I have changed brake pads quickly - just not at 500* and not in 2 minutes or less.

I have 2 mutant powers - I can pick up the correct allen/hex key the first time every time (seriously, no idea why or how) and I can stay awake for 40+ hours without losing focus. I'm also from Seattle so the weather sounds great...

What happened to endurance pads and less braking?

25 hours at race speed? I think I did 12 lapping days this year and my car probably didn't break 20 hours. Of course there's a reason 949 hasn't asked me to drive for them too...
