Just when we thought we would wind down the season , this is the busiest it has been since the preparation for runoffs. It has been nonstop in preparation for the 25 Hours of Thunderhill. We have had the Wolf GB08S out 5 times from delivery from Italy and it has been a blast. We learn more and more every time it goes out. Going through all of the systems and refreshing for the major test of 25 hours. This is our first attempt at the 25 and everything is coming together. A major challenge for any team to make sure that everything is in place and every contingency plan is in place and the list goes on and on.
Just got back from testing at Thunderhill last week and everything went well. The weather was perfect and the drivers were very good to the car. ( "Can't work on going faster if you are fixing damaged race cars." - Todd Harris) We had both of the Wolf race cars out during testing. The 2.0L was a lapping work horse for those drivers that haven't driven the course. The V8 GB08S was a rocket, once again. All drivers were easily driving 1:36 with the bypass. Ivan managed to kick out a 1:32.2 and Al Unser III was lapping at 1:33's.
Now it is time to reprogram drivers into conservative mode and put a game plan together to try and win this thing. Anything can happen and we just need to stay out of trouble, drive consistently and not make any mistakes. Oh ya, it is racing...anything can happen. We all ask ourselves; why do we do it?
