The Tire Rack One Lap of America is the toughest 8 days of racing featuring the fastest street-legal cars on America's most challenging racetracks! Seasoned One Lap of America contender Catesby Jones who finished 3rd place overall last year decided to up the ante this year. Catesby went out and bought a beautiful white 2010 Nissan GT-R. We put our heads together and come up with a game plan for the project. The plan was to drop of his car brand new car at Forged Performance and pick it up a week later on the way to One Lap of America ready to compete! We didn't have a lot of time for this build so we knew we had to act fast. We ordered all the parts and immediately started going to work.

It was a long week for the Forged Performance crew. The job got completed in the time as promised and was a flawless installation.

Looks like the #1 GT-R dropped out due to spark plug problems so our hopes ride on this one!

I saw the car during some shake down lapping at Road Atlanta last weekend (hello to Sharif!). The wing is beatiful, especially accenting the white body. And the exhaust note was great. It reminded me of Ferrari. Good luck!

Nope, this car is running flawlessly. Unfortunately, it's Underpressure who was reigning champion ( he WON overall last year) who has had to drop out...
