VIDEO: 25 Hours of Thunderhill with Flying Lizard and Toyo Tires

Endurance races, automotive proving grounds of people and machines working together. It’s not up to one driver or one mechanic but up to the whole team to work together and succeed. At this year’s 25 Hours of Thunderhill, Flying Lizard Motorsports, along with their sponsor, Toyo Tires, have clinched the overall title with the number 45 Audi R8 LMS. It was its third consecutive class and overall win at the event, racing for over 2,100 miles. Fling Lizard’s number 74 Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport also earned its class win, making Sunday’s three-peat a double race win event. 
The team sponsor, Toyo Tires, has put together a quick five-minute video from the race. Their issues were real; accidents, pit-stops, track-side repairs, all in the span of sleepless 25 hours. So yea, it’s just like our 24 Hours of Lemons racing except the cars are bit faster and pricier, and they don’t sleep, party, or drink at night. In the end, the team overcame of their issues and got the two wins. Check it out.

        Nothing beyond what turned up via subsequent searching of the interwebs; its appearance in the video took me by surprise. I’m amused to see it listed in the official roster as a 1960 Champion, as Champion production ended in 1958 and this one looks like a ’54. Maybe they were hoping for a 1960 Champ instead?
