Pre-race Preparation

NASA Utah 2016 Round 5 Michael Chandler CAMautoMag-20

“Race Group! This is your third, and final call!”

The voice booms through the loudspeakers all over the paddock.  Everywhere teams scramble to do last minute prep to their cars, and drivers ready themselves for the race ahead.  Helmets and HANS devices go on, then the drivers climb into the cockpits.

Harnesses are cinched tight, radio cables and drink tubes are connected to the helmets.  GoPros are turned on, the doors are shut, and the window nets raised.  The drivers give a thumbs up to their crew members, and then the final whistle blows, and the cars are sent out for their formation lap.
