The new race director makes his first big change with the announcement that the 2012 Womens Little 500 will run under the lights at 7.30pm. I assume the strategy is to get some more spectators through the turnstyles and running the race under the lights will really add to the atmosphere. It will certainly be more raucous with the students having the chance to drink all day before the event and hopefully the flood-lights will be good enough prevent any increased danger. I imagine it'll be a lot of fun, look for Teter to take the chequered flag at around 9pm!
Below is an image of the 2012 race bikes. It has a classic feel to it.
