    Looks like this is going to be a good battle between the 720s and the Nissan GTR for 1st place.

    I noticed all the cars seem to have "teams". Is that a requirement to enter this?

    Have to have at least 2 people, no powered support vehicles allowed (ok to tow a trailer).

    The GTR broke so it's Andy's to lose now. The GT2RS or TTRS may give him a run but they're a ways behind in points.

    The Mclaren crashed, so he's out. #1 spot up for grabs. That Audi is kicking everyone's ass and he's not even in the fastest class. A few Arizona guys in there kicking ass I track with a couple of those guys they are very fast.

    Nice to have met you George, Todd, and Mark, and Steve Loudin if you’re on here. I think the weather prevented the Vipers from showing all that well but it was a great time regardless.

    We took it very easy all week. Car is on its way back home now without a scratch, mission accomplished.

    Here's my wet morning session at Road America, first laps ever at this track. Car still had too much rear brake bias so every braking zone was very slow and gentle, and I took very late apexes to lower risk at exit.

    Things got wetter with each lap - the first one was quickest despite the standing start (which cost 5+ seconds vs. a flying lap).

    Hello all, sorry for taking so long to get back to everyone! It was a long wet week. Viper George even considered not going out in some of the Afternoon session. It was slick......we cam in 42nd overall......not a good showing but it came home ready to go again!
    This was our 2nd One Lap.......Anyone that is a Car Person should consider doing it! It's a traviling community that is a giant family.....you would be amazed at the out pouring of help when needed!
    We are ALREADY pre-pairing for next year.image.jpg

    Couple more videos. In general kept things very careful in the brake zones, with very late apexes for safety-

    Road America in the dry:


    Brainerd International, Donnybrooke also in the dry. Big wuss-out in the first two corners!

    So to even think about winning this thing, or even your class, you would have to have some experience at each track beforehand. Since you get one set of tires any practice session you would do would just be making your tires slower.

    You can't practice the day of the timed event, but of course are free to go run the tracks in the weeks and months beforehand. They usually have the tracks and routes published a few months in advance.

    Most of the top people practiced at at least 1-2 tracks, with at least one person having run all of them. I think we were the top finisher that had never run any of the tracks before, but am not sure.

    I had two buddies that ran last year in a GT3. They went and practice two tracks.
