Round 3 of the 2011 EXEDY CUP OPTION2 Endurance Race Coverage!

Here is the coverage of the third round of the 2011 EXEDY CUP OPTION2 Endurance Race.

Through the generosity of donations collected along with the revenue generated from the sales of EXEDY merchandise at the race, we were able to collect 25,210 yen to donate to the Japan Red Cross.

The second round of the UNLIMITED class series was held on one of the hottest days of summer. Thirty-two team entrees had battled out for 3 consecutive hours, putting man and machine through fierce battles and furious conditions lap after lap.

The 3-hour endurance race of midsummer challenged more than only the drivers as mechanics and crew had to strategically plan driver changes as well as pit stops for fuel and fluids.

Teams within the UNLIMITED class fought point-for-point as this would be the only round before the year-end December race.

The safety car had also ran its share of laps during the multiple cautions as numerous course-outs and crashes had put the teams in the pits to work mending the cars.


Congratulations to the PIT ROAD M BRUCE GTO MOTYS team for dominating UNLIMITED class!!
