One Lap Announcements

February 2nd, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

I am very excited to be running in the One Lap of America this year with two great friends. The announcement went out this weekend to the various groups, and we are now feeling the echo of how many people we reach when talking on the Internet.

Official Notice of our Entry

Galant VR4 187/1000
It is evident that we will have reached a couple hundred thousand people, from wall posts, Facebook groups, forum notices, and twitter accounts alone. That is good news for us, as the first thing we really need is a big money sponsor to help us pay for the trip. Outside of the basic entry fees, we need to have additional insurance, full race suits, SA approved helmets, tires specifically ordered for the event before we even talk about gas and hotel stays.

The trip itself should be nothing short of Epic for me. As every child did my age, I grew up with the 6 foot long poster of the Lamborghini above my bed, after memorizing the Cannonball run films.

More than anything, I am excited to be able to go on this event with the technology we have today. I am going to work hard to stream video along the trip, and have people tuning into our efforts along the way. Never before have we been able to support such technology, and it is truly amazing.
