Etymology 2Modificar

From Middle English lappen "to fold, wrap" from earlier Middle English wlappen "to fold, wrap" from Old English *wlappan, wlæppan, wlappian "to wrap" from Proto-Germanic *wrappan-, wlappan- (to wrap, fold, roll up, turn) from Proto-Indo-European *werb- (to bend, turn). Akin to Patrono:Dan dial. vravle "to wind", Old Italian goluppare "to wrap, fold up" (from Patrono:Gem). More at envelop, develop

The sense of "to get a lap ahead (of someone) on a track" is from 1847, on notion of "overlapping." The noun meaning "a turn around a track" (1861) is from this sense.
