This year, Forged Performance was pleased to sponsor, and help prepare not one, but two Nissan R35 GT-R’s for competition in the grueling One Lap of America race. This annual event, takes 60+ competitors on a 3400 mile trip across the country. it’s been called the toughest 8 days of racing, featuring street-legal cars, on America’s most challenging race tracks. Oh, and the kicker is, you have to do the entire event, and all the racing, on just one set of tires!!! Team Freedom Autosports, and the duo of Will Taylor and Steve Rankins, are competing for top honors. We are shooting for two podium finishes…I will let Will from GoTurnStop, and Derick from Freedom Autosports, duke it out for first place. We wish them the best of luck, and safety throughout their journey.
And the latest update, is that Will Taylor just broke the wet skidpad record! Way to kick things off! You can follow all the action at: http://www.motortrend.com/one_lap_of_america/index.html
