24 Hour racing: The ultimate mechanic’s challenge

Motorsport is a frustrating thing to love, particularly if you become actively involved. At its the best, taking part in racing events can fill you with adrenaline, and an intense feeling of accomplishment; at its worst, it can break your pride and joy (the car), and sometimes it can break you too.

For drivers, engineers and cars, there is no greater challenge than a 24-hour race. And because a lot of people involved in motorsport can be suckers for punishment, there are plenty of teams that focus solely on long-distance racing.
