Motorsports Monday: 2009 Volkswagen GTi

To call the TireRack sponsored “One Lap of America” anything other than a grueling competition would be a disservice to the event. On par with some of the greatest endurance races in the world, the 7-day, 3,200 mile trek around the United States has an added twist – you have to drive your race car between stages. Now, that’s something that occurs in the World Rally Championship – but they cover far fewer miles and have pro teams, pit crews and major automotive manufacturers backing them up. To say that the One Lap is a amateur-only event would also be misleading, but it is far from a strictly professional series – and where else would you see a Honda Odyssey win at anything? Combining several different classes of cars, you get the spectrum from classic performance muscle cars through modern super GTs. The winner of class “SSGT2 SB” in 2014 was a Volkswagen GTi – one of a trio of cars prepared to dominate the event. When you consider that the cars that ranked above them were super GT royalty – Corvette ZR-1s, Viper SRT-10s, Boss 302s and a plethora of Nissan GT-Rs – the level of performance from the GTis is drawn into perspective. Now the builders are moving on, leaving these seriously potent track weapons available at a fraction of their build cost:

Though power output isn’t listed, you should probably consider it more than sufficient. But this car is way more than a turned up 2.0T as the list of custom equipment is considerable. The Anze suspension alone is a several thousand dollar undertaking, but the Maktrak sequential gearbox is the really big ticket item here. Add that, the suspension and the 14″ Brembo brake setup up and you’re beyond the asking price of the car. That doesn’t even being to factor in the giant wheels and tires, custom carbon fiber body work, roll cage and race seats – and of course, the high horsepower motor build. If you really want to dance with some serious company at the track, this car will do it. It won’t be comfortable to or from the track, but that it’s capable of doing so is a feat in and of itself. Just don’t expect the police to turn a blind eye….
