For Krider Racing, the 2012 running of the 25 Hours of Thunderhill started with rum and ended with rum. It took a fair amount of rum to garner the courage to take on such a monumental task like “The 25.” This is the story of how a group of friends came together to compete with factory backed professional race teams in the longest road race in North America, while campaigning a $500 car that was originally built for the 24 Hours of LeMons, and somehow walked away victorious. This is the Krider Racing 25 Hours of Thunderhill “Rum Diary”
We will be doing real-time flag to flag coverage of the 24 Hours of Le Mans on Twitter @SpeedSportLife , or you can follow along here with our Cover It Live widget. Don’t forget to download the 2012 Le Mans Spotters Guide from SimRaceway.com.
In our opinion the best place to listen to the broadcast of the race is RadioLemans which offers a live stream worldwide, flag to flag. These guys are the best motorsport commentators out there and do an incredible job covering the race year after year. Live timing of the race can be found on the Lemans.org website at http://live.lemans-tv.com/en/.
For those of you who are in the U.S., the race will be aired on SPEED. While SPEED is doing flag to flag coverage, they will be alternating between a live TV broadcast and streaming video on their website for the hours they go off-air on TV. Their schedule is as follows:
Drive will also be doing a live stream on their YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/drive
FIA/WEC Official Channel
TELEVISION: SPEED: Saturday 8:30am EDT
We like to be social and interactive during the race so please drop us a line in the comments or via twitter. Let us know who you are cheering for and feel free to make jokes at our expense while watching.

Andrew Trahan provided us with some great social media coverage from Sebring all weekend and now brings us this great set of photos from the 2012 12 Hours of Sebring. Enjoy!
The Krider Racing Nissan Sentra SE-R takes second place at the world famous Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in the ChumpCar 7.5 hour enduro.
After lunching an engine at the ChumpCar Laguna Seca event in November 2011, the team throws a new engine in the car and heads back to “The Corkscrew” to take second place just weeks later. After some countless hours nerding out in front of a laptop the post-race compilation video is up and viewable here.
The 2012 North American International Auto Show media days are a wrap and we’ve got our complete photo gallery from the show to share with the world. We’ve included both the world debuts and North American debuts from the show in the galleries after the jump. Byron will have his thoughts on this year’s show soon, but for now we hope you enjoy the gallery!
