Our Rolex 24 Experience

It was exhausting, literally took us these past two days to recuperate from the 12 hour night shift. Usually a 12 hour shift or a night shift doesn’t kick our butts but combine the two and it did just that and then to make things worse we had two people walk off the job within a few hours of our shift, so breaks were not as they had been in the past years. We hope the guys that left will not be allowed to come back for Speed and Bike weeks.

We worked 6 pm on Saturday until 6 am on Sunday in the infield at the Pit Road Patios, not a busy gate but as usual we made the best of it. We were able to get away, not together though but we did take some breaks to watch the race and check out the Pit area. Unfortunately, we had decided not to take our good camera with us, it’s bigger and bulkier, so we took one of our smaller ones and for some reason it jammed and all the photos we thought we took did not come out at all. We will make sure we take the right camera for our next shifts.

As for bicycling, well that was really tough, for me at least it was, for Jerry it was easy. Walking for me is easier than bike riding and after such a long shift it was really hard making it back to camp. But, after a lot of breaks and walking instead of riding, we made it back and slept most of Sunday while we finished watching the Rolex 24.
