We saw yesterday where cars gained at least 2 hours on fellow competitors only 24 miles into the race. One thing even more interesting to watch was when a car could not make it up the hill they actually gain even more time because the next car or truck would have to wait to tow truck to clear before next car could try.
SCORE has the ability to verify the down time and take out of overall finishing time in insistence such as these. Not saying they should go back now and do it but it should be looked at for future races. We pay a lot to race and it should be a race.
