Default Press Release: SOA One Lap of America 2004 Forester XT

Subaru of America Central Region has teamed up with the premier Subaru tuning tompany in America, COBB Tuning in sponsoring the Car and Driver One Lap of America Forester XT.

This mildly tuned version of the 2004 Subaru Forester XT is sponsored by: Subaru of America CTR, COBB Tuning, SPT.Subaru.com, Hotsubaru.com, ModernArmor.com, Silkolene, Tektronix, Subaru of Dallas and Vehicles in Motion.

The Forester XT will compete in the most grueling and intense race series on the North American continent. The Team will cover 5,628 miles, nine tracks, and ten events to include: skidpad, road racing, and drag racing! All of this will be done in nine days.

The goal of this effort is to show that with the right modifications, a mildly tuned Forester XT can be a formidable track car while also proving to be a comfortable daily driver. Quoting Team Captain Fleming, “The new Forester XT is a fantastic platform to improve on, though it has been a challenge to prepare due to the short timeframe and the use of a relatively new drivetrain. The competition is fierce this year and we look forward to showing that performance options for Subaru vehicles don’t simply end with the WRX and STI.”

The Driver Team will consist of Chris Fleming, Andre Vandenberg, and John Holmes.

The Team Captain Chris Fleming is an accomplished SCCA Solo 2/ProSolo driver/instructor and best know to the Subaru world as the owner/driver of the famed “Conebasher”. Chris will be sharing the Road race and skidpad duties with Andre Vandenberg.

Andre Vandenberg is an accomplished driver/Motorcycle racer having competed in numerous road races, endurance races and SCCA Solo1&2 competition.

John Holmes is the team’s drag race specialist and transit driver. John has campaigned many drag cars and has recently started road racing his WRX.

The team also needs to thank Keith Verges of Apex Driving School for allowing us access to Motor Sports Ranch!

This team will face not only the Iron Man of car racing, but also a strong field of competitors. Many of the competitors have competed in this event multiple times in the same vehicles. Many competitors prep all year for this event. Our team has had about three months to prepare and are anxious to show what we can do!

Subaru of Dallas wishes them all the best as we know they will do their best!

The Schedule is as follows:
Friday, April 30, Tire Rack HQ; South Bend, IN -- Wet Skid Pad Shootout

Saturday, May 1, Heartland Park; Topeka, KS -- 2 Time Trials

Sunday, May 2, Pikes Peak International Raceway; Fountain, CO -- 2 Time Trials

Monday, May 3, Infineon Raceway @ Sears Point; Sonoma,CA 2 Time Trials

Tuesday May 4, Las Vegas Motor Speedway -- 2 Time Trials

Wednesday, May 5, Pueblo Motorsports Park, Pueblo, CO -- 2 Time Trials, Drag Race, Bracket Drag

Thursday, May 6, Hallett MRC; Hallet, OK -- 2 Time Trials

Friday, May 7, Road America; Lake Elkhart, WI -- 2 Time Trials

Saturday, May 8, Tire Rack HQ; South Bend, IN --Dry Skid Pad Shootout, Awards Banquet

Here's the map of where they're heading!

Sweet car! Reminds me of the Subaru of Gwinnett Forester from last year, except theirs was black with gold 17" superleggeras...even had a STi intercooler on it at the time.

I definitely agree on the Cayenne...

I planned on running my forester xt also in the 2004 One lap with my Forester XT

JIC coilovers
STI turbo & TMIC
3" Turbo Back
Carbotech Brakes
But I could not come up with the entrance fee even though I signed up and then I lost my co-driver which I have back again. Anybody want to help with the entrance fee I would be happy to accept. :-)

Find some sponsors! Check with any vendors that you think might want some advertising and tell them why you are doing it. You're a rolling billboard for thousands of miles of highway and a number of tracks. It's worth it to them!

Sadly, no Cayennes in the entry list.

Competiton looks like:

Dodge Ram 1500
Chevy S10
Dodge SRT-5 Sprinter and a
Buick Ranier CXL

Should be interesting, can the lightweight Forester out-handle the more powerful V8 competition.

Best of luck to the crew. Wish we were joining you this time around. Motor failure forced us to withdraw three weeks ago. Not sure what's compatable between the two car, but please feel free to contact us if parts etc... are needed.

I've heard the "SRT-5 Sprinter" entry is actually going to be the 500 hp Viper V-10 powered SRT-10 truck.

The sprinter is the new tall MB truck (little UPS truck) that dodge is selling as a replacement for the ram van.

The Dodge Ram is a contender for an overall win this year... It almost happened with the same truck a couple years ago...

The driver of the "sprinter" put a Neon in 8th place overall last year, and it may be able to beat the Ram...

Make sure there is a digital camcorder in the Subie, we've got an STi lined up, but need a camera in the SUV class...

Good luck! You're probably 300hp or more shy and a few hundred lbs over Ron's Ram, but if it rains...

Is this the S10 that is registered? It is a C4 Vette w/different top.
