Time trials isn't really for spectators. Thats why the location is not disclosed and only being told to the teams at registration. If they open it up it will be a zoo with no parking for the race teams and people running all over the place. Its simply not setup for large crowds.There is very little information about the time trials. Where is it located? Website only says "APEX / PABCO ROAD" as the location, Google Maps shows a Pabco Rd. in Henderson? Can spectators go to watch? I already have a pass for race day.
Sorry couldnt get on a reply sooner - Long day for many of us!Yeah, I could see that if it was out in the open desert. Thought maybe they would use the track behind Buffalo Bills, which has a spectator area. One or two short loops starting and finishing in the same area. Thought I saw a past qualifying event where they started two at a time?
Are the time trials getting streamed anywhere for us east-coasters?
Seriously you have a wreck and race vehicle on fire and send a responder vehicle backwards on the course during an active time trial with trophy trucks? If it’s that bad you stop the time trial. Multiple helos in the area that could have assisted from the air. Think about it
Thank you ND glad you were on the sceneThat was me.
The driver of that truck passed a vehicle upside down and on fire with a person trapped inside. He never even slowed for a second.
He has been educated that life safety is the most important thing out here. No qualifying time or race result is above that.
That codriver is now in the burn unit at UMC in Las Vegas.
Further BITD implemented a procedure a year ago that every team must have a person with direct communications standing by. That was to resolve issues like this. Adrenaline took over. And he failed to yield to an emergency vehicle that had full lights and siren.
You can feel free to second guess my decision and my methods but every single member of my team will risk their life and their property to save a racers life.
That was the decision I made.
I stand behind it.
