Part rally, part social event, part excuse for the filthy stinkin’ rich to flog their supercars around roads in Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Las Vegas, this years goldRush Rally took place on June 8 – 13. While technically open to anyone with the $6,000 entry fee, the rally discourages any participants who don’t drive exotic or expensive cars. If you’ve got a a contemporary Ferrari or Lamborghini, you’re in. Drive a nicely restored Datsun 240Z or Alfa Romeo Spyder, and you’re probably not goldRush Rally material.
The event is as much about the nightlife as it is about the driving. Think loud techno music, and dozens of high end escorts gulping Cristal like it was 7up at each and every stop, and you begin to get the picture. If you’re tanned and buff enough, have the requisite silly gold mask, drive an Italian supercar and have a bank balance that ends in at least 6 zeros, you may want to watch the goldRush website for details on next year’s event. For the rest of us, enjoy the video and watch for the full length release on November 4.
