One Lap GSR
OneLapGSR started out as a crazy idea in 2014. I was going to take a basic bolt-on Evo X, and transform myself and my car into a worthy competitor in the field of drivers for the 2016 Tire Rack One Lap of America. Over the last two years, I turned that idea into reality, with the help of my family, my friends, and my generous sponsors. Follow along as I share my path from my first time on track, to One Lap of America, to a class championship in Gridlife Track Battle.
About One Lap of America:
If you aren't already familiar with One Lap of America, the event itself "is foremost of endurance and vehicle preparation. No support crews are allowed. The tires that are used on the street are the same ones that are raced on (one set per team). Although scoring is based on performance at the race tracks, the vehicles and their drivers must survive over 5000 miles of driving interspersed with the finest meals available at gas station convenience stores. Personal hygiene takes a holiday and friendships (sometimes marriages) are stretched to the limits as these competitors battle fatigue, weather, traffic and the demands of high-speed competition with both unknown amateurs and seasoned professional drivers like Parnelli Jones, Price Cobb, John Buffum, Elliot Forbes Robinson and Hurley Haywood. What does it take to run in the Tire Rack One Lap of America? A car of course (and there's a competition class to fit every automobile). The entry fee ($3000). A minimum of two drivers who have each had some racing experience (and/or two drivers' schools). And, the willingness to confirm your parents' suspicion that there was always something wrong with you."
