The 25: Speed Rain Darkness Damage Glory
GoRacingTV.com’s Documentary of NASA’s 25 Hours of Thunderhill
Krider Racing, a team that drove its way to success in crap-can racing with both the 24 Hours of LeMons and ChumpCar $500 racecar events, graduated to National Auto Sport Association (NASA) races and competed in the Western Endurance Racing Championship (WERC). The team applied their tried-and-true formula from racing beaters and went on to earn the 2010 E3 Championship title in the WERC series. Cameras followed the team to NASA’s headline-year-ending event, the 25 Hours of Thunderhill. With narration by “RacerBoy” Rob Krider and production from GoRacingTV.com this gritty documentary came to life about what it was like to “Survive the 25.”
You already have a car with a rollcage and you finally got your competition license. The only problem now is you’re totally broke from installing the rollcage and paying to go to driving school. With limited funds, how are you going to race? Simple, split the operating costs with a few friends and go endurance racing. With endurance racing, you and your friends will each get more than enough seat time and you can all share the
burden fun of working on the car and paying for tires.
For the 25 Hours of Thunderhill GoRacingTV.com shipped a bunch of HD Cameras to the Krider Racing crew to film their adventures in the number 33 Nissan Sentra SE-R at the race. The team took hours of footage and the editors at GoRacingTV.com are currently busy putting together a feature episode of the event. In the meantime, GoRacingTV is running a new web series called The Insiders Report which features Randy Pobst (World Challenge Champion), Peter Keane (Daytona 24 Hour Crew Chief), Bill Wood (Motorsports commentator) and GoRacingTV’s founder, Errol Tucker. The weekly show has inside information on pro and amateur motorsports as well as features expert opinions and insight from the people deep in the motor racing field.
