How to survive — and win — the 25 Hours of Thunderhill

There's two ways to build a car for winning an endurance race. Bolt one together that's honed for speed and hope it doesn't blow up, or choose durability over pace and count on the other teams falling apart. For last year's 25 Hours of Thunderhill, Davidson Racing brought the fast car — a Norma M20F with a tuned BMW M3 straight six good for more than 400 hp.


They also brought in several killer drivers, including one Alex Lloyd, who enlisted Yahoo's camera team in an attempt to kill them by exposure to a rainy and frigid northern California night. Everyone survived (barely), and the video above shows just how close the race between a pack of turtles and a few hares can get.
