Big props to Chris and Andrew. Those guys were the heart and soul of the pit crew. Their youth and knowledge kept us in the battle. Andrew is wise beyond his years and a natural leader. Words cannot equal the credit he deserves.

I am lucky to have been a part of this experience.

+1

For me to say that I was impressed by Andrew's grasp of the responsibilities he was given and challenges his team (within a team) surmounted, would be an understatement. Shocked, and that is not hyperbole in any way. This kid has a bright future and we're just hoping we can get him back for next year.

I'd also have to add Keith Tanner as a key member of the wrench spinning team. I heard about the two man front pad swap in some insanely short time span. I think I heard it was under two minutes wheels on to wheels on or something. When Andrew, Keith and Chris were spinning wrenches, the rest of us just stepped back, held the lights and tools/spares when they barked a command. Those stops were freakin awesome to be a part of and one of the most exciting things I have ever experienced in motorsports.

we were extremely fortunate and we know it. the difference between winning and losing for us was the talent, determination and desire to work as a team to win.

i want to do this next year. we are already kicking around ideas to improve for next year.

Not that I'm anything to do with it, but I really hope you do give it a go again next year... it would be great to see you doing even better. I've said it before, but its really inspiring to see what you can do with an amazing team around you.

Russell.

This thread needs a tally of all the consumable items used during the course of the race.

William has the figures somewhere. Maybe he can chime in.
