Cannonball run!!!
« on: April 14, 2007, 10:37:42 PM »
What is it 30 years after the movie some nut has come up with the idea to actually hold the race?  The American portion will have 400 cars that start in 4 different cities.  The plan is to drive 2900 miles at a minimum of 61 MPH.  Of course there is a fee...  Ten-thousand smackers get you in the race!  Along with the entry fee you get:

  • Official Great American Run car decals (super sweet)
  • Track fees for the exclusive Great American Run track day at the Willow Springs Raceway (Mohave Desert)
  • A shot at the World Title, Trophy and Free Entry in to the next event + 600HP SALEEN Mustang (1 of 25)
    $500,000 tour operator insurance and $4,000,000 public liability insurance
  • A cold welcome beverage on arrival at each hotel (scotch on the rocks pleaseÖ)
  • VIP entrance to parties (well of course, you think Iím standing in lineÖ)
  • Luxury hotel accommodations (based on twin/double rooms)
  • Secure overnight parking (like how secure?)
  • Final Night Gala and Awards Ceremony at a prestigious LA venue (prestigious or pretentious?)
  • Breakfasts + All evening meals (with limited drinks)
  • VIP gift bag at the beginning of race to include event t-shirt (how cute)
  • Services of the Great American Run Event Managers, Checkpoint Crews, Luggage Vehicles, Photographers and Film Crews (good Iíll need some solid HD footage of my high speed chases)


More info Here!!!

Now finally we found a race that jakes SC 5.4L T-Bird was made for!!!!  O0
The 5.4 swap has been called a bad idea, and considered an underpowered considerable waste of time, since 2007.

Nice to see that most donít think that anymore.
