25 Hours of Thunderhill


Recommended Posts

In order to help drum up interest, I thought I'd start an early thread for the upcoming endurance race in my neighborhood, the 25 Hours of Thunderhill.

Is anyone here planning on entering a team? Anyone planning on attending? I'll definitely be there for this and hope to get a group of TS'ers to cruise up there to park/spectate. From the NASA site:


"The Northern California office announced today that there will be significant television coverage for the 2009 25 Hours of Thunderhill. Airtime will be purchased on the Versus Channel (formerly Outdoor Life), to air sometime in early 2010. The show will be at least a one-hour production and focus on the action in the race, as well as feature select race teams.


"The plan is to spread coverage around so that each team will get something," said Event Director, Jerry Kunzman. "However, we will have interviews and stories with several feature teams. This will give the production some life to it, and make it more like reality TV."

Check http://www.versus.com/schedule for providers in your local area with the Versus channel. Chances are you already have it.


There are currently two slots still open to become a featured team. NASA is looking for interesting stories to cover, as well as for a team that is willing to help with a little funding to offset production costs. "If no teams come forward with offers to help fund the production costs, the show will be subsidized from the event's budget," said Kunzman. "This gives assurances to all the teams, the production and airing will go on as planned, no matter what. With this in mind, private teams should be able to more easily obtain sponsorship for the 2009 25 Hours of Thunderhill."


Teams interested in being a featured team on the TV show, should send their team information to jerry@drivenasa.com. Incomplete and/ or informal proposals will be accepted at this point.


For more information email Jerry Kunzman at jerry@drivenasa.com or call 510-232-6272"

Just got this reminder in my inbox from NASA:


NASA 25 Hours of Thunderhill -- Follow the Action


The 2009 25 Hours of Thunderhill presented by Mothers® PolishesWaxesCleaners will commence its sixth annual run on December 5th at Thunderhill Raceway Park in Willows, CA. A traditional feature event on the NASA calendar, this race is a season highlight for endurance racing teams from all over the world. Over 70 teams are currently registered for the longest closed course road race in North America. Good counts in each class should result in intense competition for the big win.


To follow the action from the event, fans can visit a brand new live timing and scoring feed located at http://www.drivenasa.com/liveresults/25hour. Thanks for being a part of the NASA family and see who can "Survive the 25!"
