It's that time again... OLOA is back!

Post by GaToR » Fri Apr 30, 2010 3:35 pm

One Lap has prided itself on its eclectic mix of participants since back when it was a markedly different event known as the Cannonball Run. This year is no different, and the competitors are beginning to fill up the lot, with everything from the usual bevy of Porsches and BMWs to tasty vintage items like a Katech Engineering-motored 1967 Camaro and a patriotic 1968 Dodge Charger. Supercars like a Ferrari F430, an Ultima and a Dodge Viper have already been spotted, and there's also an ever-growing crop of all-wheel-drive Japanese cars – Subaru WRXs, Mitsubishi Evos and last year's winning Nissan GT-R. It wouldn't be One Lap without some heavyweight machinery, including a BMW X6M (driven by BMW Performance Driving School instructors!), a Ford F-150 Lightning and a Dodge Ram SRT10. You can see the complete rundown of cars on the official One Lap site by clicking here, and be sure to check out our gallery of the first arrivals below.

We'll cover the proceedings as best we can, but as we are part one of the two timing and scoring crews hopscotching the country working to get ahead of the racers, we won't be present at each and every event. Thankfully, if you're looking for the latest standings and race results, you can check out OneLapOfAmerica.com along with Motor Trend. If you're competing in this year's event or planning on being a spectator somewhere along the way, be sure to come up and say hello – we'll be piloting a BMW 335d :D and a 550i.
I love following one-lap. A real test of durability of both cars and their crews. A pure 'hell week' for the die-hard racers.


I'm hoping that AB and the 335d do well in the 'green cars' category.

And naturally I'll be pulling for Will Taylor and Steve Rankins to go 2-for-2 in the Cannonball GT-R. :nana:

I love the Honda and the Panamera rankings.
Patience is the ability to idle your motor when you feel like stripping your gears

Check out #4, Mazda 5 MPV. :mrgreen:

Wet skidpad is the great equalizer, LOL!


Since it is a TireRack sponsored event, all teams are allowed only 1 tire set for the whole 10 events. Wet skidpad is usually a decent prediction as to how each car will do in its class.

Since all events are rain-or-shine, the teams at the top are obviously betting on some rain over the next week, and are using a more wet tire, and will likely place well in their class, should it (inevitably) rain for some of them.
