"Private jet with a private kitchen and toilet. Nice."
It isn't quite as luxurious as you might think; the "toilet"... depending on airframe manufacturer, is nothing more than a removable seat cushion over a commode (concealed chamber pot) typically located in the aft-most seating (nearest the tail), and privacy curtain is an OEM option.

On another discussion board, it was mentioned there had been pressure from a corporate sponsor (i.e. Honda) preventing the race from starting earlier. With the scheduled 3:00pm race start, and sunset at 5:22pm there was less than 2 and a half hours of daylight for the event; poor visibility may have contributed to the crash (in addition to the reduced traction).
