Btw, it looks like NASA just published the Survive the 25 from 2016 on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uo0Et2HZ2V0

Great quality video and production. They did a beautiful job on it.. (not just because we won. :P)!

These documentaries are great to watch. Do you or anyone else know why the 2011-2014 Survive the 25 series aren't on YouTube anymore? Any place I can find them?

Wow neat to see a Studebaker out there in track. Other than salt flats speed runs you don't see those in motorsports

Congrats to Flying Lizards and drivers Darren Law, Nate Stacy, Charlie Hayes and Tom Haacker on the team's third consecutive win in this event! It just goes to show what an awesome car that first generation Audi R8 LMS ultra is, to have raced 75 hours without a failure (that I know of!). Way to go guys!

That may have been the toughest endurance race I've ever competed in. The 25 Hour never fails... such a good old school race! Congrats to my teammates in the #45 on their win.

It was fun! Clearly not as fast as a GT3 car, but that's to be expected. It'd be a lot of fun to race against other GT4 cars because it moves around so much... decent power and not really any aero so it slips and slides a lot. If we had used regular slicks I think we could've fought for an overall podium (we ran on Toyo DOT tires).

The fuel mileage on the Cayman was great... around 90 minutes per stint at full green flag running. There was normally a yellow/safety car or something else going on during a stint and we double'd every driver all race so stints were in the 3:30-4 Hour range every time. I only got in the car twice during the race.

My back, wrists, and left foot (braking) hurt though... tough race!
