PISTA RALLY Day 1 and what an insane day it was! We started off at the Houston Raceway for some drag racing. When you only have about 50 cars to a drag strip, you can get in a LOT of runs. I think I put down about 20 passes. My best was a 11.5 and worst was a 12.2. Not bad for a stock 458 on street tires.
After a bit, I ran into Cleetus McFarland (Garret) and after talking for a while, I bought his entry to the track so he and I could race. Needless to say I got my butt kicked but it was so much fun, and he’s a super nice guy. Losing to Ruby was my favorite loss I’ve had.
Then to continue the craziness, while driving from Houston to Austin we ended up having 4 interactions with the police. While stopped at Buc’ees for a fuel stop, we had multiple police and sheriff’s cars come and talk to us. They apparently had reports of us going 130MPH+. Hmm.
Then we got stopped by a rolling road block and one of the drivers was issued a ticket for no front license plate – the default FU ticket when they have nothing else. We stopped again for another fuel stop and a cop came and talked with us for a while. He ended up being super cool and was the kind of police officer that you want to run into.
Finally, as we were almost at our hotel, I was pulled over along with another Ferrari in the group. This is where I ended up on LivePD infamously. Like I said, crazy day!
My LivePD incident if you didn’t already see it.
