The forfiveone is 451 smart fortwo that has been improved by Stephen. The mods include racing suspension, wider tires, GPS and computers, and many cosmetic enhancements. I recently had the pleasure of taking a ride in the forfiveone.
I am very exited for this opportunity – being part of a tradition and making history. This is going to be the first time that a smart participates in One Lap of America. I do not know if the smart has entered any other races yet.
I have a thing for long drives, and 11,500+ KM of driving and riding is likely to fulfill that desire; and this doesn’t include the on-track driving. I will be posting updates here as things progress.
Note for skeptics: don’t believe me? check the entrants list!
Unfortunately, I had to withdraw from the OLOA this year. I was hoping to finish the first draft of my PhD thesis before the race starts. Alas, it didn’t happen. Health problems also contributed to the cause.
