2005 Executive Drive

Quite a day at the Autobahn race track in Joliette IL following the Indy F1 race. We drove all the cars at high speed except the GT1 race car, which we passengered in. The Ferrari Modena was the sweetest sounding - its V12 engine just behind your head, while the Ford GT was probably my favorite overall. That's 12 time Indy 500 driver Johnny Parsons in the white 996 Porsche (center right), and John Paul Jr driving the GT1 race car in the video. The video takes 3 or 4 minutes to get going, but if you listen carefully at around the 2:00 -2:30 minute mark, you will hear JP talk frankly about his debilitating disease that prematurely ended his racing career.
