bpanther Posted February 8, 2010 Share Posted February 8, 2010 (edited) 2/7/2010 Denver Co - NASA Rocky Mountain is proud to announce that Phil O'Brien has been chosen as the series director to help bring additional endurance racing to the Rocky Mountain area. Phil, who lives in Black Forest CO and often competes in 944Spec was recently bitten by the endurance racing bug. After completing a LeMons event last year and then driving solo for the NASA 3 Hour event at High Plains, he felt a need for more events of this type and was willing to fill the position of endurance series director. Three endurance events are planned for the RM region for the 2010 season across the schedule. Unlike the "old days" where sports car racers had an end of year enduro to wear out their cars, the more modern cars and drivers racing with NASA are finding that endurance races throughout the year are not an issue. July 3rd will kick off the series at PPIR with follow up events in August and then Pueblo Motorsports Park in October. The length of the races are still being discussed, but will vary in length from 2 hours to 4 hours. Hopefully the length will increase in the future and the RM events can match the 6, 8, 12 or even 25 hour formats that are popular with other NASA chapters. Phil will be concentrating on obtaining sponsorships for the series and promoting the series among the local racers.
