Will They Make It?

Here's something fun to check out: during the test days for this years Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona, one of the privateer Daytona Prototype teams, Southard Motorsports, had a pretty hefty shunt. The car was significantly damaged and the team were left with three weeks to either (a) repair it; (b) lease an older chassis from someone else; or (c) purchase a new bare chassis and swap all the components from the damaged car to it.

Small privateer teams such as this often have a great ability to think outside the box, and this was no exception: they decided to install a webcam and post daily reports on the progress of the repair. If they had any sponsors, this would be great coverage...

Let's hope they succeed.
