The Tire Rack One Lap of America has posted its 2022 schedule, and as usual it covers a bit of ground.

When the Cannonball Rally went legit | The history of the One Lap of America

Teams will again start at Tire Rack’s headquarters in South Bend, Indiana, before taking a circuit through the meat of the country–south and then east, with stops in Tennessee, South Carolina and Alabama, then all the way west to Oklahoma and Kansas.

From there, teams still have to make it back to Tire Rack. The Tire Rack One Lap of America Presented by Grassroots Motorsports runs from April 30 through May 7.

there's still drag racing to add to that schedule, eventually

it'd be cool if we could hit up BMW performance center too, after CMP... but dunno if that's possible or not

I still look forward to the possibility of a couple other minor additions to the schedule.

also, looks like ~1hr 20mins of charging for the Teslas to get from Barber to Hallet:

The waitlist is already 40 deep. A team of 3 in a GRM style car is very easily done on a budget.

back of the envelope, assuming you already have a car that's "track prepped":

entry fee - $3500 / $4000
mandatory tires - ($750 to $1500) * 0.75 = $560 to $1200
hotels - ~$1000 to $2000
fuel - $500 - $1200
wear items - $500-$1500

food - $400/person

cost per person, 2 person team:  $3500  to  $4500
cost per person, 3 person team:  $2500  to  $3000
cost per person, 4 person team:  $2000  to  $2500


PPE for 'on track drivers' - $500 - $1000 (unless you already have it)
also, you could/should buy track insurance, and have a minimum liability coverage of $500k (iirc)

In reply to John Welsh :

Looks like another event was added.  Between CMP and Barber, we now have to stop at Lanier for some oval action.  Changes that route.  It's going to be a tight transit too.  Last run at CMP starts at 12:30, first run at Lanier starts at 5.

I'm kind of sad that the path is going to take it right past the new facility in the Ozarks without making a stop there.

In reply to captdownshift (Forum Supporter) :

I dunno if it'll be ready in time?  Brock's had to scramble and get alternates lined up at the last minute when it didn't work out.  He likes getting to places that are new that people haven't had a chance to drive them (ala driving a road you haven't seen while trying to cross the country as fast as possible).  But, you want to make sure enough stuff is in place before booking a track.

I'm not, Ozarks looks like a car destroyer.

Would you like some racetrack to go with your walls and blind crest turn ins?

Blind crest turn in, yes, the wall situation there is worse than unfortunate though.
