The team is set.....Robert Grace and I will be taking on the 2013 Tire Rack One Lap of America. This is the seventh year I will have participated in this event in an effort to raise awareness of and fight the battle against prostate cancer. For our new readers, this battle against prostate cancer started for me eight years ago when I lost a dear friend and driving mentor, Tom Holcomb, to this terrible disease. The goal in my life time is to lose zero friends to prostate cancer and to find a cure.
Early planning for the event is starting in earnest with motel reservations being made, registrations completed, and fees paid. Serious car preparation is two months away, but we'll be taking the 2011 E92 M3 BMW to VIR full course in late March for a little shake down and seat time specifically for Robert. I'll issue another post after that event with some lap times and Robert's general impressions of the car.
