Our bad luck strikes again

Shortly after Craig jumped in the car, he reported a vibration and that the left front fender was coming up a few inches at speed. It took a few pitstops to isolate the problem, but the team finally replaced the nose of the No.44 Magnus Racing Porsche GT3 Cup but it cost us three positions and a couple of laps.

We can sum up the general feeling of the team with %#$&!!!

Just After Eight Hours

Things have been going pretty smoothly. John jumped in after Richard and had a great stint, moving the No.44 Magnus Racing Porsche GT3 Cup up to 14th position. In fact, his pass for 14th was the first thing we've had to celebrate all day - it was a small victory but a victory nonetheless. We're going fast and staying out of trouble, gaining positions as other cars begin to have trouble.

Right before the eight hour mark, there was a full course yellow, which worked out well with our fuel consumption so we brought John in and sent Craig back out. The pitstop went well, and Craig took off to make up some more time on the field.

5 1/2 hours in, things are pretty quiet

The Magnus Racing crew did a stellar job to change out our broken radiator (thanks GT car that knocked the cone in front of Jeroen) and since Richard got into the car, we have been running trouble-free laps. In fact, as of right now, Richard has the second-quickest laptime in GT.

We pitted under full course yellow for fuel and tires, and the plan is to next replace Richard with John Potter and send him out into the night.
