"Drivers often receive more praise than we deserve. Endurance racing is a Team not a Driver's race. No single person wins it and any member can cause the loss. Win Endurance races by clicking off laps and staying out of the pits, not damaging or killing the equipment. It's nice, but you don't have to be the fastest driver on the track." -Hal Prewitt

Hard won race against two faster BMWs due to their weight and more power. Qualified 4th at 2:15.765 and our quickest lap was 2:16.899. Race was mostly trouble free except for small oil leak near the end. Race report, entry list, results and photos can be downloaded here.
Dec 12-14, 2014 - Portimao, Portugal-- Set a World Record, won the Touring class and finished 3rd overall in the longest sports car race in the world. The Maxiendurance 32 hr race was held at the FIA Formula One testing track of Algarve International Circuit located in the historic southwestern area of Portugal. The event at 32 hours is supervised by the Spanish and Portuguese Automobile Federations and recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records as being the longest continuous circuit race. With its both grueling and heartbreaking test of endurance, race teams and drivers have to balance work, stress and rest with racing speed conditions and their car's ability to run for 32 hours without sustaining mechanical damage and while managing consumables such as fuel, tires, and braking materials. The event was a milestone and unprecedented in motor sport history. Award winning motor sport author Janos Wimpffen is writing the definitive history and commemorative book of the 2014 Maxi Endurance 32 Hours.
Hal drove two winning BMWs for more than 8 hours in the race for the team of Cor Euser Racing. Race conditions were wet, cold and windy for most of the event but did have a dry finish. Hal started No. 16 Drink Florida Orange Juice and Cor Euser (Dutch) finished taking the checker flag in the winning BMW 120D with 733 laps. The other drivers were Jim Brody (USA), Jorg Chmiela (Germany) and Maurice O'Reilly (New Zealand). Car ran well without major problems and quickest lap was 2:16.251. In the second team car, No. 17 Drink Florida Orange Juice BMW 118i Cup Hal drove with Huub Delnoij (Dutch), Cor Euser (Dutch), Einar Thorsen (Norway) and Marcos Vivian (Australian) finishing 3rd in class with 430 laps and quickest at 2:16.698. The car had to be sidelined many hours due to an ABS brake problem and damaged cable after losing the rear wheel caused by a bearing failure. Interesting note in endurance racing; Huub Delnoij at 16 was the youngest participant driving his 1st and Jim Briody at 71 years the oldest and driving his 75th race.

RUSH (2013 Movie) - Roger Parks, our Drink Florida Orange Juice Lotus Evora GT4 Silverstone Crew Chief was the historic F1 car technical adviser on this film. RUSH, is a sports drama film directed by Ron Howard about the 1976 Formula 1 season and the rivalry between drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda. Entertaining and was great to see some of the tracks where Hal has been racing. The late Sean Edwards, a driver Hal has raced against a number of times portrayed his father (Guy Edwards) in several scenes of the film. Guy was one of the drivers who pulled Lauda from the burning wreckage of his car during the German Grand Prix.
