If you're reading this you are probably already familiar with the OneLapCamaro. We've created this blog as a test of sorts to see how we can best share our experiences in testing and racing on the web. I hope that by the time we run in the One Lap of America in April of 2010 that we will have 'dialed in' this blog as well as the car. Please feel free to let us know your thoughts on the blog - its format, it layout, and its functionality - so that we can make the most of it next spring.

Countdown to the 2010 Tire Rack One Lap of America

2010 Silver State Classic Challenge

The OPTIMA Batteries OneLapCamaro is heading to Ely, Nevada for the 2010 Silver State Classic Challenge - one of the most exciting and revered motorsports events in North America.  This is the 23rd year for the Silver State Classic - where cars, drivers, and navigators of every description take their turn running down the 90 mile stretch of Nevada Highway 308 - and we're hoping that our third time is a charm!

This year James will be driving the OneLapCamaro with Fast Mary Pozzi handling the navigating duties.  We'll be competing in the 120 mph class meaning that we'll be shooting for a 120.000 mph average speed over the 90 course with nothing more than a couple of stop watches and (hopefully) some decent course notes.  In May of 2009 James made his first run down 318 aided by navigator and self professed media personality Steven Rupp.  There average speed of 104.987 mph on a 105.0 mph target netted a fourth place finish with a time variance of only 0.377 seconds - not bad for a couple of rookies!  The OneLapCamaro was back in September of 2009, this time with Jimi Day taking on the navigation duties.  The results last fall was a 2nd place finish with an average speed of 115.051 vs a 115.0 mph target. 

On Sunday September 19th we hit the highway... we'll keep you posted as the weekend progresses!
