It's that time of year again, where a bunch of crazies take to the roads of America in pursuit of exhaustion and glory in the Tire Rack One Lap of America presented by Motortrend.

The 2009 event was won by Steven Rankins and Will Taylor in the Cannonball GTR sponsored by Continental Tires prepared by 42Autosports and tuned by owner/driver Will at goturnstop.com. The team is back to defend their championship, and this time bring along 5-time One Lap veteran and 3-time top-10 finisher Jon Krolewicz to do some driving and help with media/updates from the road.

For those that might not know, the Tire Rack One Lap of America is an event where teams travel from track to track over the roads and them compete in their cars in time trials at each stop. This Year the event goes through 11 states and stops at eight tracks along the way.

The Schedule:

April 30:
Tire Rack Wet Skid Pad contest @ The Tire Rack - South Bend, IN

May 1:
Two time trials @ Road America - Elkhart Lake, WI

May 2:
Two time trials @ Mid America Motorplex - Pacific Junction, IA

FAQ:

The Freedom Autosport GTR of Whitis will not be in the event this year.
There is another GTR - Catesby Jones/Jose Collado who are also in the event.

Any more info on this GT-R?



Lets just say it is well prepped and well driven. Not over the top. Catesby is also a One Lap veteran with 2 top 3 finish's in a BMW.


Peter,

Who can't figure who to cheer on. Leh Keen in a well prepped GT2, Will. Steve and JonK. last years winners, or Catesby who drove my E46m3 to 3rd overall. Sure going to miss being there.

Looks like a battle between the GT-r's Awesome skid pad #'s from Will/Steve/Jon

Adee dug himself a hole, 140 point deficit, the 1st major contender has made a mistake and probably eliminated his chances.

Popp??? 70 points back

Keen still in the hunt. 35 points out.

We are going to run an afternoon run, and will probably be on the road in an hour or so. So, uh.. not long.

I haven't seen official results for the morning, but I don't think anyone went fast enough to disrupt the top five. (much)

Video from morning run at Road America:


Also, had a misfire develop in the afternoon run, we will be no higher than 5th, but we will report later when we figure out where we are.
