Bullrun: What comes to mind when you hear these words? Testosterone? Speed? Power? Brute force? Little regard for “johnny law”? At Auto|One Group when we hear Bullrun it reminds us of one of the best rally races in existence. The prerequisites for this rally are the following: you must have a cool or funny car, you must have a sense of adventure, you must have little regard for your insurance broker, you must have a sense of humor and above all you must know how to drive, FAST! This is the 10th anniversary of the Bullrun so you know it is going to be a dusey.
The Bullrun is an endurance rally every year that runs between two cities in North America. The idea is that every day you wake up and drive a stage then show up to a hotel every night and party until it is time to drive again. This year the rally is going to be especially amazing because it starts and finishes in the best party towns this continent has to offer. The rally starts in Montreal and ends in New Orleans.
The Bullrun is a first class affair. Every day you eat like a king, hang out with celebrities and sample the best roads and views the area has to offer. It is a fantastic way to spend 7 days. The best part of the Bullrun (I know it gets better!) is the element of surprise. Each day the racers and navigators are oblivious to what the day will bring until they get to the parking lot in the morning. They get a dossier that contains check point or a land mark and it’s off to the races. Drivers and navigators have to fend for themselves finding the best routes, deciphering riddles, using their brains, and not being hungover. there will be cops to contend with, dead ends and false directions. Everyone has to bring there A game.
The car Auto|One Group is using are still highly classified and cannot be discussed until the car shows up in Montreal to start the rally. Our theory is that the car will be so intimating that it will force lesser vehicles into submission. This car was born in the bowels of hell and then modified by Satan himself to produce what is arguably the best exhaust note in existence. The first time we fired up the savage beast it was next to a flower bed. When we came to work the next day the pretty flowers had been replaced by a badger….with rabies. Coincidence? Or work of the car so aggressive that the devil himself is scared to drive it?
Canadians are a friendly group of people and Auto|One Group wanted to show their generosity by providing a vehicle for Team Texas to use. Team Texas will rendezvous with us in Toronto and pick up their ride. Team Texas is comprised of 3 sisters who always show up and have a car mysteriously appear for them to drive. This has worked so much that they are now a staple in the rally. The rally would not be the same without them. When it looked like the sisters did not have a ride Auto|One Group decided to chip in and get them in the driver’s seat.
Buckle up your seat belts ladies and gentleman. Start your engines. Hide your driver’s licenses. The race is about to begin!!!
