    Fuel chart / Schedule.

    Good news is that we don't really have to do 28 laps. If we wanted to eliminate a stint we'd have to do a few 29 laps as well.

    Please have a look at the schedule and see if there is something you want to see improved. Bedo, your last stint ends at 19:21 EST, is that okay?

    Duke, I wasn't sure how comfortable you are with triple stints so you don't have any. If you want one I'll gladly switch my stint 15 for your stint 7 or 18. Your stints aren't on very favorable times because Bedo has to drive at the start but we might be able to shuffle stuff around still.

    @Noodleguitar, well congratulations are in order as this is by far the worst schedule I've ever seen lol. I'm the only North American Driver on the Team and you have me driving hours that Europeeons should occupy.

    Why on Earth am I driving in the wee hours of the morning, you realize I'm almost 50 right?

    I feel like the Sunday morning stints should be with you and @SavreticD rather than having me in there. Mind you I'm not sure of Dennis' schedule so maybe there's a reason for it, don't know?

    Anyway I'll do it if I have to but it's awful to say the least.

    I DO however appreciate the effort that went into it though, you're a fucking Wizard at this stuff!

    Sorry @SavreticD, if that's the case then just leave it alone and I'll find a way to work in sleep through the day.

    @Duke, I was also trying to avoid too many single stints but that's not a big deal. Is it better now?
    @SavreticD Your sleep time has currently diminished somewhat, if you want we might still be able to swap your second late night stint to somewhere else.

    @Noodleguitar, I just don't think there's much you can do.

    We were a 6 man Team which has dwindled down to 4 and that's a lot of hours to fill with Drivers and Spotters.

    This schedule looks better but gives me no time for sleep until midnight which is going to be tough.

    Hopefully there will be someone else around who can spot so I can sneak in some much needed z's throughout the day.

    Anyway it is what it is so let's just get 'er done.

    Good luck all, it's an honor driving with you!

    I think spotter is not important here,same class so like any other race,at least I dont need spotter,only thing is 2 guys must be online,in race,that is true.
    Like you said,our team is big,maybe somebody will want to help with spotting,that would be nice but still,if something happend with driver?What then?

    I actually have a sleeping bag setup right in front of my PC for these events. If something happens all I need is someone to yell at me to wake up and I'm there.

    My schedule is good, I actually have the whole afternoon tomorrow. Ken if you want to condense your stints so we can avoid a driver change, say do two back to back, that's totally cool.

    Do you mean the stint after Dennis' first or another Bedo?

    I'm certainly open to doubling up particularly if it gives me a longer window in time to catch some z's.
