Yesterday I took a drive down to San Pedro to check out the scene of the next round of Red Bull Globalrally cross happening this weekend (you can watch live on tv!). The rumor was that Tanner Foust’s new VW Beetle was going to make its debut at this event so my real motive for making the trip was to check out his new car in person. I got much more than I bargained for. It turned out that the event organizers were doing media ride alongs and I was lucky enough to sit shotgun with Tanner Foust as he took to the course in his brand new car.
I will admit I was a bit nervous. However, I figured this was a new car, its a media ride along, he will probably take it easy on me. I was completely wrong. Although to be fair my first indicator should have been the flagger literally warning me that Tanner was about to melt my face off. You will see what I mean when you watch the incredibly bouncy cellphone video I shot of my experience below. If its too crazy then I apologize. I was too busy trying to not pass out to really put deep thought and consideration to my shot composition.
Anyhow, scroll down and enjoy!
