one will be fine with sufficient chase route and timing scheduling and planning. I chased for two 950's last year and simply because I didn't know what I didn't know about roads and times and routes, I missed them at a few pits. BUT, they used MAG 7 for fuel, so I was just a bonus pit if I could keep up.... which I couldn't, despite my best efforts...
