In the event of an airbag deployment or fuel shutoff, there is a direct 911 call.

All This Power In One Place

If it was an assault on the senses you were looking for, there was no better place to be on Earth than Las Vegas, as the sixth annual goldRush Rally began on May 31st. The eight-day run from the Strip to New York City took the drivers through Park City, UT; then Denver, Chicago, Cleveland and Washington DC. If they weren’t exhausted by the driving and partying when they arrived in the Big Apple, they certainly were by the time they left.

Money

The only way most of us will ever get to own any of the cars that took part in the goldRush Rally is if we strike it rich in Vegas. From Bugatti Veyron Super Sports to McLaren 12C’s, all done up in a variety of arresting (sometimes eye-watering) paint-jobs and wraps, the amount of money tied up in these cars was staggering. GR7 in 2015 will be a chance to combine the sights, sounds and smells of the rally with the thrill of the casinos, but in the meantime we can always practice online with GamingClub’s “pure platinum” slots – at least you can play for free there!
