2010 One Lap – Fillup in Iowa “Somewhere”

May 3, 2010

This is the fill up between Road America and Mid America Motorplex the evening of May 1st.

The boys didn’t quite make it all the way to Mid America Motorplex on one tank of gas as they had hoped. Listen in for the reason and stay tuned to the end for a correction to the mileage figures.

2010 One Lap – Road America Afternoon Session

May 3, 2010

This is the afternoon session at road America on May 1, 2010.

They ran the track in the “short configuration.” This is the first time I’ve ever seen the track configured this way. They basically cut from corner 13 through the normal run off for turn 5 and then back onto the track at corner 5. This removed the two very long straightaways and hopefully evened out some of the cars that possibly has speed limiters on them. 😀

One thing I noted was how different shift points are from lap to lap.

2010 One Lap – Various Highlights from Road America

May 3, 2010

Here are a couple various high lights of Road America during the event.

Most notably the CTS-V that lost its brakes going into turn 12 (Canada Corner,) went straight into the tire barrier, flipped over, went though the fence and landed on the spectator side of the fence! No one was injured as there is still a short barrier fence people stand behind and the driver walked away with a couple minor cuts and bruises. Last I heard he was calling dealerships looking for another car to complete the event in!

Initial Fillup and Driving Commentary in Chicago

May 3, 2010

Here Enrique documents the first fill up of the car. This was before the wet skid pad at Tire Rack. Unfortunately we don’t have any footage of the wet skid pad.

Then Enrique and Greg have a discussion somewhere just North of Chicago about the first impressions of the car and the fuel mileage so far.

Enjoy!

(I’m going to be catching up and re-editing some of the video’s but they should be in order from this point forward.)
