Thanks to Team MagnaFlow!
Day 1 – Times Square, New York to Toronto, Cananda
Preparations for the 2006 Bullrun event took place at the Gansevoort Hotel in Manhattan. Cars rolled in throughout the Friday before the event.
MagnaFlow’s weapons of choice were the new Audi RS4 (sporting 420 hp and released to the public only days earlier) and the Panoz Esperante GTLM. From the start, it was clear that we were going to be underdogs, despite having Mario Andretti on our team (at least for the first day). We were to be matched against cars like the Lamborghini Murcielago, the Mosler, a bevy of modded Vettes, AMG Mercedes’, Porsches and Ferraris. Carl Lewis (Olympic Champion and way-cool dude) brought two Spykers, there were several Gallardos and even the odd Ruf Porsche.
At this point we’re thinking “well, these cars are fast, but how many drivers will actually drive them fast.
