It took a long time for a team driving a Radical sports racer to win the 25 Hours of Thunderhill Presented by Hawk Performance. The first time that happened was in 2019, and since there was no 25 Hour in 2020, the 2021 event marks the second consecutive time a team running a Radical SR3 has won the grueling 25-hour event.
In sprint racing, the strategy is simple: Start as far forward as you can and improve your position from there until the checkered flag waves. In endurance racing, there are a lot more factors in play, and someone on the team needs to put them all together to form a comprehensive strategy the whole team understands. Everything from pit stops and driver changes to tire changes and fueling strategies come into play — especially when the checkered flag is 25 hours away.
