Ferrari Challenge Races at Circuit of the Americas

Ferrari Challenge Austin 2016

I was thankful to have the opportunity to attend the Ferrari Challenge Races at Circuit of the Americas.  I purchased a "VIP" ticket which allows one to go to the Ferrari hospitality suite.  They have good quality food for breakfast and lunch.  They also had coffee drinks and an open bar with wine and beer.  The ticket also allows one to go to the paddocks / garages where the teams are working on the cars as well as go right beside the track.  An optional tour of the tower was included also, which was fun by the way.

The cars are pretty amazing and quite loud.  It was an amazing experience.  I would certainly do it again.

Besides the racing cars, there were also historic Ferraris, and an Alfa, on hand for folks to enjoy.

You can purchase tickets for upcoming events through Corse Clienti or your local Ferrari dealer, from what I've heard.

Hope that you enjoy the photos and videos.  Cheers.

Rolls Royce Dawn test drive

I was thankful to have the opportunity to test drive the fabulous new Rolls Royce Dawn.  For an exotic luxury car I really can't think of a better car.  It's very comfortable, stylish, and when you want to put your foot down quite powerful.  Even with the top down it's quiet and respectable.

I must admit that I was a bit nervous around the other drivers merging on and off of the 520 freeway near Bellevue.  For such a large car the visibility is quite good.  They let me drive the turchese blue Dawn which is quite fetching, and eye catching.  It's so eye catching that a construction worker waved at us as we passed by.

I hope that you enjoy the photos.  For more information about the Dawn check out the Rolls Royce mini-site.  Thanks to Jared at Bellevue Rolls Royce.  Cheers.

RWB Canada

It was a beautiful day to drive up Aberdeen Centre in Richmond / Vancouver, BC. It was fun to meet Akira Nakai, or Nakai San as some call him. His hand crafted RWB cars are pretty amazing.  He was nice enough to give me an autographed poster and even humor me by signing my shirt.

They unveiled a new oranged 964/993 nicknamed "soulmate".  The car was actually wrapped orange.

Some of the other RWB cars on hand looked great.  The green and blue cars were my personal favorites.

I was a little surprised that a couple cars just had stock interiors but I suppose that these builds are not cheap.  Enjoy the photos.  Cheers.

Exotics at RTC 4/16/16

It was another beautiful morning at Exotics at RTC.  It was a bit chilly when I arrived but when the sun was shining later people were thawing out.  There were a wide variety of cars there from old classics, to modern exotics, to very rare Ferraris.

Apparently there were some hoodlums from the Honda club who were threatening online to cause trouble but I didn't see anything while I was there.  I would hope that people will be considerate and help support this great event.

Enjoy the photos.  Cheers.
