The LOOOONGGG RACE

If you have not raced before, being on the track is very exciting and lots of work. The time between those times however, can be a bit dull. Following are things folks do to fill time.

Pete Luongo and Berdie Martin chatting.  Lots of talking and strategizing goes on between sessions.

Yep, more strategizing.

Gary, friend of the Elite team, cooking lunch ... a rare treat between sessions.

A large gang, eating said lunch.

How was it?  Beau liked it.

Now things are getting more serious, the crew is getting the cars ready to go out. Play time is over, track time is near.

After each session, the drivers get their times and report to Elite staff about what the car felt like and how it was handling on the track, should adjustments need to be made.
