Here's part I of my Sunday stint at the 24 Hours of LeMons driving a Buick Regal we "borrowed" from grandma. It must have been terryfing for other drivers to see a PARK BENCH fly by on the inside of Turn 1 in the rain...
Park Bench Racing at the 24 Hours of Lemons race, NHMS, Friday practice, October 24, 2014
If you are looking for something to do this weekend besides apple picking and Halloween parties, come up to Loudon, NH and watch some wanna-be racers take on the road course at NHMS. You will be greeted with race cars that started out at less than $500, crazy car decorations, and drivers with a few screws loose (like their cars). Keep an eye out for our Park Bench Racing Team. The team will be driving a Buick Regal they 'borrowed' from grandma with a park bench on the back for a spoiler (it really does work). Come on by the pits and say Hi unless we are desperately trying to fix something (extremely likely), in which case grab a rag, tool or fire extinguisher and try to help us get 'er going again. Hope to see you there and thanks in advance.
Andy L., Team Captain
The Park Bench Racing team has already rescued one Camaro/Firebird from burning down to the ground...
... did welding to help the Kentucky Chrome team pass inspection for which it was generously awarded with a case of beer...
... welded the racecar's exhaust back on, replaced two hubs, passed inspection, tested the car, and is ready to lay down some serious rubber at the race!
This is the first Palmet Motorsports Park Video with Data. It's very helpful to be able to quantify the elevation changes at speed. Car is a stock E36 M3 driven by Nick Fontana. Data and film by David Wittmer. Thank you, COM Sports Car Club! We are all giddy about Palmer here at OneHotLap!
It's just incredible that no spectator was hurt in this horrifying accident at Italy's Jolly Rally Valle d'Aosta. Driver Pietro Scavone and co-driver Diego D'Herin sustained minor injuries and one spectator was treated for shock, according to the La Repubblica newspaper. A miracle indeed!
This is the official trailer for our action documentary ADRENALIN - THE BMW TOURING CAR STORY.

The legends behind the wheel tell their stories from the cockpit view and let the golden era of touring car racing come alive again.

ADRENALIN - A STEREOSCREEN PRODUCTION
Great news: world famous performance coach, race car driver, author and speaker Ross Bentley is doing a webinar featuring his Inner Speed Secrets program. He's always done these in person for a group in seminar format, or one-on-one when coaching a driver. It’s all about the mental game of driving. But he wants to offer it to even more people and we are glad to spread the word. Take a look at inner-speed-secrets.com for the webinar info. Registration closes this coming Friday (Oct. 10). This is why you should consider attending:
This program is unique, and exclusive, but being made available online, for the first time.
Some of the best drivers in the world have used this program, and it really makes a difference – drivers will perform better than they ever have.
Due to the webinar format, Ross is able to deliver this program at a very low price, but registration is limited. Sign up before October 10to get a spot. Don't delay or you'll get left behind by the drivers who do participate in the webinar.
This program has truly been a secret of a relatively small number of drivers, and Ross is now making it more available for a limited time - still only to those who register by this Friday, October 10.
The program will help drivers get into the zone and perform at their best more often. Who doesn’t want that?!
