Toyota enters four vehicles in One Lap of America
April 26, 2016
It's that time of year, our Toyota Engineering Motorsports team is prepped and ready to go on a more than 3,000 mile trip across the U.S. to compete in the Tire Rack One Lap of America. This year, we'll race a highly modified FR-S and a slightly modified Avalon.
We're also excited to welcome fellow Toyota team members entering two Sienna concepts into the race that will span the Midwest and East Coast. The goal is to shatter the perception of what it means to own a minivan. One Lap is the ultimate road trip, and Sienna the ultimate road trip vehicle, with its comfort, utility, and versatility.
The Siennas will primarily be driven by Top Gear host, Rutledge Wood, and Grand-Am Rolex GT Champion, Craig Stanton. Andrew Lund, Sienna chief engineer, and drag racing specialist, Sean Morris, will also take part in the action.
“When Toyota asked if I wanted to go on the trip of a lifetime for One Lap of America, I said heck yes,” exclaimed Wood! “We’re taking not one, but two Sienna minivans…it’s going to be awesome.”
The R-Tuned will compete in the Truck/SUV class and will also earn points toward the overall standings, while the SE + will compete in an Exhibition class.
The Siennas, Avalon, and FR-S will compete in a field of nearly 75 vehicles driven by hundreds of unique drivers from all over the nation.
The race begins on the skid pad at Tire Rack headquarters in South Bend on April 30 and concludes on the skid pad on May 7.
