Post One Lap 2012 Event Thread
It is hard to keep all of the forums and Facebook Page and Blog updated. I will use this thread to post the major updates.

The last 4 days have been a blur of work. Huge thanks to Cory at STM for getting it up on a rack for alignment. We weren't that far off our target, but we would have kicked ourselves if we didn't have it sorted before we left.

Getting the decals off the car and back on for the last day really sucked. I actually like that job if I have a little more time to make it happen.

We are in route to South Bend now. I hope you guys can get on the Facebook, as it is the easiest place to keep everything updated. Each page gets an email address, so we can send photos and update from email when they happen.

Stephen

Typically I spend half my time updating blogs and forums and website and acting as media crew for One Lap of America. This year was a little different, as we were involved with a production team from LA, looking to make a TV series out of One Lap of America. So our media fell to the background while these guys had us mic'd all day and brought us in and out of camera sequences.

If all goes well you will hear about some amazing things coming up for the 2013 event.

This week the production group that followed us, started putting up some of the video clips. None of them are the actual reel that goes up to the networks, but they had enough material to make some fun teaser clips. The first one is TopSpeed and the interview with Leh Keen.


The second one is a "what is one lap all about" type of video where we had some footage in.


Granted they didn't spend the funding to get them really edited or post production work on them, but it is fun to see some of the footage they captured while hanging out the side of the mini van.

Here is another great clip that focuses on the RochesterDSM One Lap Evo X. It details how cool the spirit of One Lap is as people we had never met before went out of our way to get us the wheels to keep going.



Feel free to share.

Here is a video that highlights our day at Hallet Motor Circuit in Oklahoma. Some great footage of me putting the Magnus Evo X through its paces...and then into a tire wall.

Fiery Feather Productions produced an almost hour long 2012 One Lap of America video. Here is part one of that video. I apologize in advance for my liberal use of sailor talk.

Part three is up. I stopped swearing and a funny thing happened, Steve started to break stuff and drive in the dirt. Keep an eye out for sponsor swag like the JayRacing skull cap beanie...if you send us stuff we will wear it.

Here is my lesson on URLs and what they are doing.
When you look at the YouTube URL or almost any other URL on the planet, the important part of the link stops at the & symbol. Everything else after that is typically a variable or something being passed to the webpage you are about to visit. After removed the & symbol and everything after it, the embedded file works fine.

It is after all an old forum software that doesn't do all of these things automatically. We avoid updating to a newer platform because of cost.

Why doesn't the shorty url work? It doesn't have "&" or a "?".

The little plug-in that I added to put the YouTube tags around the link essentially takes the link and puts it into the rest of the code that would be needed to display the embedded video.
The shorty URL doesn't play nice with that code.
That is the short generic version.

When you pay for a piece of software like vBulliten you get a company or people who are constantly identifying new content types and working to embed that into their platform to handle this for us. When you have the open source ( aka free ) version it up to the guy running the site to patch and mod and add all of the content types. So I need to do so more work and smooth things out.
