I was not able to attend the 45th running of the SCVMTC's Endurance Run. If any Forum members participated in either the Endurance Run or Lowland Tour, could you please post some details of the route, turn out and some photos?

I read that this year's event was to be shorter in length and duration. Does any one have any info on this change?

Thanks

I wasn't able to make it either :-( hope to see pictures soon. I really need to work on my car and run it next year.

Tim, it kills me to miss them. My kids play competitive soccer and the league has been holding the district tournament on the same weekend as the Run for the last 2 years.

I did drive the speedster through the neighborhood tonight just to get the wind in my hair.

I tried to do same thing myself Tom but just like you I had kid stuff to do and couldn't drive mine today. My day consisted of building a back yard play structure which consists of about 300 pieces. I am just waiting to see results of who won this year and how many cars there were.

I went to take pictures of the cars when they finished but got to the finish just as the last ones were leaving.
It finished early this year.

There were 35 speedsters at the run. We went over mt Hamilton into Livermore. The paper this morning said it was 105 in Livermore and I believe it. We finished about 10 after 3. The car that won came in about 10 minutes later. The run was not a lot shorter this year but they only allowed for 30 minutes at lunch and no afternoon break. That 45 minutes would have put the finish around the normal 4 o'clock. A half dozen or so didn't finish the run.

Andy, thanks for the info. It was a beautiful day for a drive over Mt. Hamilton. Wish I could have been there. Maybe I'll take a day off this week and run the speedster up the hill.

Ivan, I am looking forward to your video.

Tom

Here is the video:

The video is not the best because the direction we are shooting and the early morning. Makes for some harsh sun.
