A ridealong on a Volkswagen Rallycross D.C. lane (Video)

Assistant Managing Editor/Video- Washington Business Journal
When we listened Volkswagen Rallycross D.C. was rolling into RFK this weekend, my initial suspicion was, “Oooh, we consternation if they’ll be doing ridealongs?” Maybe it’s usually that latent, tip enterprise that so many reporters have to try out everybody else’s jobs. But attempt motorist (OK, passenger) for a day? Yeah, pointer me up.
I was all gung-ho about a idea, right adult until a impulse we listened veteran racer and attempt motorist Tanner Foust flay out and speed off toward a sand with his initial organisation of passengers in a demo automobile he was pushing (the Rallycross vehicles usually have one chair – no room for inquisitive reporters there).
As he screeched behind into a stop, we enlisted a association of a always-able Events D.C. communications executive Teri Washington to join me on my journey (sorry, Teri – we indispensable an word policy).
The video above gives a dashboard’s eye perspective of what a initial rallycross lane looks like, finish with gravel, obstacles and, yes, jumps.
I’ll apologize now for my screaming.
