    Default The Devil in the Dark 2013

    The Jersey Racing Board (Northern New Jersey and South Jersey Regions) and New Jersey Motorsports Park announce the fourth running of The Devil in the Dark 12 Hour endurance race on NJMP's Thunderbolt Circuit. The 2013 edition will be held on Saturday, 27 April 2013 and will again run from noon to midnight. There will be a Test Day on Friday, 26 April for 12 Hour competitors and other closed wheel cars.

    This race is a continuation of the successful events run in the past three years. The format and rules will be very similar to last year with a no major changes from previous year's events. The open refueling rule is being retained as well as the consolidated endurance classes introduced last year. If you missed The Devil this year, be sure to put it on your calendar for next year.

    The entry package will be posted on the DLB online registration system after the first of the year. Registration will open on 1 February 2013.

    More participants, more fun in 2013!

    My friends and I are building an ITA / IMG PI-5 CRX enduro car at Entropy Racing's shop. If all goes well with the bodywork and shakedown, we'll be there.

    If anyone isn't going and wants to rent out the glow boards that they may have laying around let me know. I will hopefully need them.

    Anyone that wants to have fun in the RX8 send me a PM as well. Maybe we can work something out. I am NOT doing this for any profit. Yes I want to Win but this is for the experience and FUN, if we get a trophy all the better! WE will have to stop at least 3-4 times more than other cars, the only good thing is it takes about 25seconds to fill it. FYI the car will be set up as a NASA PTC car for this particular event.

    Hmm... I don't have anything planned for that weekend yet.
    I might be interested in the RX8, but I'd really like the seat time to somewhat crossover to my car.

    FWD car for rent, anyone?

    I think only about 1/3 of the fun running with Stephen and RST would be the driving. Awesome group of people to hang out with. Plus the stories... Absolutely want to do an enduro with you guys someday. Maybe next year.

    This is definetly part of our plans this year!!! It's going to be FUN. We have a brand new car that is in great shape... lets hope we can make it to the end! that is our goal...

    Any suggestions from the experienced guys on what we should have "brand new" to start with? what are the likely things that will need replacing DURING the event pending zero crash damage or strange mechanical failures? I got Gas and tires... how about brakes?

    Sadly we have NEVER done anything this long, longest race ever was a 4 hr and the car seemed like it just backed off the trailer after that event... no issues at all!

    PS: a LONG time ago "K" won a challenge here on the forums. https://improvedtouring.com...ad.php?t=29138 Offer still stands if your interested!

    The entry information (supps, schedule, etc.) for the 2013 edition of The Devil in the Dark is posted on DLB (set filter for South Jersey Region | Club Race All) - and the event web site .

    The direct link for the race information is Supps and Schedule

    The rules are essentially the same as last year with a few refinements based on our experience and competitor feedback. Most of the previous years' enhancements including the elimination of timed pit stops and the condensed endurance classes were well received and have been retained.

    The entry for this year's race will open on 1 February 2013

    Hope to see ya at The Devil

    I like the Class Challenge trophy idea for well-subscribed sprint classes. If that was in place last year and i missed it, I apologize, but it's a nice idea.

    I also want to chime in again with support for the "E" class approach. A great approach!

    Terry, what are the criteria for determining what ITX class a car will be in? I see there are ITX1-ITX5...

    We'll be running my now ITB Civic, I'm still undecided on rcomps or potentially using street rubber.

    We added the Class Challenge a little before last year's race (and after the initial release of the supps) to recognize well-subscribed sprint classes and ease the transition to the Endurance classes. It's a nice bridge.

    We like the Endurance classes because it gives everybody competition. Our feedback has been universally positive.

    The ITXn classes are for endurance compatible cars the don't completely comply with one of the underlying rulesets. Access to them is normally by negotiations with the Chief Steward.

    I'm aware of your tire considerations and will get back to you shortly.

    Terry, thanks a lot for looking into it. However, don't go nuts over it, nor make any special exceptions, I think my team will most likely be on an RComp anyway, they are saying it is worth the extra money.
