Congratulations to Bullet Racing for finishing the 24h of Daytona!

guys!

The Vancouver team finished 20th overall (of 44 entries) and 13th in class (of 30 entries) in the crazy 24h of Daytona. If you even follow motorsports a tiny little bit you'll know what a great achievement this is.

According to their site, they raised more than $150k for Children's Hospital.

From that point on, we had a few blown tires (on the banking, at speed, no less), and a recurring water pressure issue (as in there wasn't any).

Finished in 20th overall, 13th in class, after 632 laps, and raised just more than $150k for Children's Hospital in the process.
here are pics of the car afterwards:

Props to Darryl O'Young and team for a nice drive despite the shunt.

Don Kitch and the Team Seattle crew were also there with an RX-8, also racing for their children's hospital. They finished just one spot behind Bullet Racing in class.
