24Hr Nelson Ledges 2018, Mike

Nearly done working through the backlog of in-car videos, and here's the playlist of all 6 drivers from our 2018 attempt at the 24 Hours of Nelson Ledges. We made it a solid ten hours, all while struggling with triple digit ambient temps, fuel system issues, driver fatigue, but it all fell apart when the bolts holding the flywheel to the crankshaft failed and ended our race. Huge thanks to everyone involved.

Split screen. Evan Vs Ian

Time for something a little different. This is a split screen battle between Evan Salmonsons FTD, vs Ian Seppanens. Evan was victorious, but its a very close match.

Our own little super lap battle. Evan Salmonson's best lap of Saturday (and track record among the team), versus Ian Seppanen's best of the day.

How not to spend a morning at BIR.

Here is what ended our chances of a decent finish on Sunday, and the emergency engine replacement that followed. It was a massive undertaking, and Jaret Salmonson, Evan Salmonson, Dan Adamson, Ian Seppanen, and Shauni Salmonson all put in some serious work to get us back out and racing.

Still haven't completed engine disassembly to diagnose the failure, but the lack of compression on cylinder 1 indicates piston failure.

After developing an odd noise, then stalling coming off the track during the Sunday WRL race at BIR, we decided to swap the engine in the Sons Of Irony Motor...

Finally getting around to uploading some of the in car from this years WRL BIR race.

Dan was in the car first, and he spent his stint doing exactly what he was told to do, learn the car, and the track, and bring the car back in 1 piece.

Dan starting our 2018 BIR endurance race with WRL. Car #240 Sons of Irony Motorsports.

Got a lot done on the Champcar this weekend thanks to Shauni and Evan. Most exciting of all being the pair of Diode Dynamics lights that we got installed and wired. The super slim design really helped us hide them well. Can't wait to fit the second pair, then test them out in the dark.

Big new here at SoIM HQ this evening.

With our first night race quickly approaching, we looked into different headlight options.

Diode Dynamics has stepped up to help us out with some of their LED lighting products.

With incredible optics, and ideal color temperature, their products should be ideal for keeping us on track, and competitive. We're all very excited to test out what they have to offer.

Be sure to check out everything they have at http so:///www.diodedynamics.com

Jaret is in the car for the final stint of the day. A fellow competitor in a BMW thought our drivers door looked too shiny, so they smashed it in. Just body damage. Checked quick, then we sent him back out.

Evan is halfway done with his stint, and we're nearing the half hour point of today's race. Everything is going well.
