Race teams from around the world gathered in Northern California to compete in the world’s longest endurance race, the 2009 25 Hours of Thunderhill. The race requires teams to drive throughout the night for 25 hours straight. At the end of 25 hours the team with the most laps in each class is declared the winner.

In addition to winning first place, the team set a class record for the most laps completed. Rounding out the podium was Andiamo Racing/Bullet Performance 2, who completed 675 laps, and Team The BMW Store 2, who completed 668 laps.
