For the past eight years the South Jersey Region has conducted The Devil in the Dark 12 Hour Endurance Race at New Jersey Motorsports Park. The Region has enjoyed presenting these events and competitors have expressed considerable support and appreciation for our efforts.
Unfortunately, attendance at this year's edition of The Devil dropped by over 50% for a variety of reasons. The Region incurred a very significant financial loss which is impacting other SJR events this year. There is serious consideration being given to dropping the 12 Hour from our 2018 schedule.
In spite of the loss this year, the Region would like to continue with our signature event if our risk can be substantially reduced. We are contemplating adjustments to the event to increase its popularity and turnout.
We are seeking opinions from participants in The Devil in the Dark 12 Hours and the Charge of the Headlight Brigade 13 Hours as well any as anybody interested in long distance endurance racing. We have prepared a short 3 to 5 minute survey to gather your ideas and preferences. To take the survey, click on this link:
We encourage all endurance racing enthusiasts to help us find a winning formula for the last remaining SCCA long distance endurance race. Feel free to forward this survey request to your co-drivers and team members and other interested individuals.
Thank you for your insights
