2016 Event Information
The 14th edition of the NASA 25 Hours of Thunderhill presented by Hawk Performance has been won for the second year in a row by the No. 45 Flying Lizard Audi R8.
In a dramatic late race twist the dominate No. 57 Ginetta of Ryno Racing came to the pits with a right rear suspension problem at 9:15 a.m. (21+ hours into the race of which it led to that point). The No. 45 Audi R8, run by the Flying Lizard team, lurked in the top three all race just waiting for the 57 to have a problem. It was time for the defending race champions to take the overall lead. Darren Law was behind the wheel of the 45 when he took the lead with three hours remaining. It was not clear sailing from that point. NASA officials parked the 45 for 15-minutes at 10:20 a.m. for on track contact.

It’s difficult to win your class at Thunderhill. Just ask Dennis Holloway. It’s even more difficult when you have to stop for fuel every hour. Holloway’s RX-8 is not the most fuel efficient vehicle on the grid and it doesn’t have the largest fuel tank, either.
Nonetheless, Holloway and his team pulled off another win in E2 in the 2015 25 Hours of Thunderhill, and they did it with lap times some seven seconds quicker than their opponents and fielding a car that served them reliably for 25 hours.
“We made it with no penalties and no crashes, well, no real big crashes and it was a very good run,” Holloway said after the race. “The rain was rather challenging.
