Link to the "Survive the 25" documentary of the 2012 Thunderhill 25 hours featuring Team 949 racing on youtube


Most of the interview was done right after the race and I had just climbed out of the car after a 6.5hr stint, total about 15hrs. I was pretty darn tired so I probably sound a bit duller than usual :P

Notables on Team 949 Racing for the 25:

Crewchief Keith Tanner of Targa Miata and Flyin Miata

Head mechanic Andrew Kidd of Trackspeed Engineering

Enjoying this. During the dramatic alternator/waterpump-belt failure scene, I had to laugh at the crew chief's line outgoing line: "Happy car, thank you Crusher".

Aren't Miatas always happy cars?

That was me

They can get a little cranky when you make them race this hard. Emilio drove the wheels off Crusher to get that win.

Having dealt with both Keith (personal Miata) and Emilio (race Miata), I can say I am not surprised by the effort, or the result. Very cool video to watch. Outstanding job, guys!

Keith wins the "looking and sounding pro" prize. I just look kinda tired and possibly too serious.
