The next day was pretty easy, we had to pick up our credentials from the hotel that was serving as race headquarters and take the car for tech inspection.
The car was unloaded and the aero assembled. When designing aero it really helps if you designed all the stuff to come on and off quickly because you end up doing it several times a day to fit in the trailer even on a good day!
At tech, the car was gone over with a fine-tooth comb. Pike Peak is an inherently dangerous event and the officials take extra care to make sure each car is safe.
Every weld on the cage is inspected.
Every bit of the car’s layout falls under the watchful eyes of the tech officials.
We passed with flying colors. The Evasive Team is very thorough in prep and studying the rulebook beforehand so there were no issues. So for the rest of the day, we relaxed because the next day would be a long one.
So we had to get up at 2am so we could be up the Mountain and staged up to run our practice session by 4:30 or so. The cars leave the line at first light and have to be off the Mountain by 9am so the tourists are not inconvenienced too badly.
