The Authors@Google program was pleased to welcome Alex Roy to Google's New
York office to discuss his book "Driver: My Dangerous Pursuit of Speed and
Truth in the Outlaw Racing World".
Team Polizei 144 Captain Alex Roy is an automotive/travel executive, rally
driver, TV personality and philanthropist. Since 1997 he has been President
of Europe By Car, the largest independent European Car Rental broker in the
US, currently celebrating its 53rd anniversary. In 2002 he founded the
notorious Team Polizei, and is the only 7-time trophy winner in Xtreme
Rallysport, winning the 2003 Gumball 3000 Spirit Trophy, the 2004 Gumball
Style Trophy, the 2005 Gumball Silver Trophy (unofficial, of course), the
2004 Bullrun USA Team Trophy, the 2004 Bullrun Ibiza Trophy & the 2005
Bullrun USA Silver Trophy.
He is also an Executive Producer of "32 Hours, 7 Minutes" a documentary
about the 1981-83 U.S. Express, the last no-holds barred illegal non-stop
race from NY to LA.
The high-speed, unbeleivable, illegal, bittersweet, hilarious, danger
packed true story of Team Polizei, from my father's revelatory deathbed
confession to my search for the truth behind the greatest secret in racing
history. The Driver follows my attempt to duplicate Claude Lelouch's
Rendezvous (albeit around Manhattan), the creation of Team Polizei, the
discovery of the now-infamous Polizei BMW M5, our debut on the 2003 Gumball
3000, my ignominous capture on the 2004 Bullrun USA, and many more
adventures so far known only through snippets on YouTube...culminating with
my delving into the true history of the Cannonball Run and U.S. Express,
the underground cross-country races from which modern endurance rallies
descended and the long-secret record whose true story has yet to be told.
This event took place on July 8, 2008.
Stay tuned to the end of the video for some footage of Alex's Team Polizie
BMW M5, which he graciously brought by the Google NY office!!!

Polizei M5 144A vs. a Porsche 996 turbo
Only now, five years after the expiration of the last relevant European
legal statutes, we can finally make public the video of our heretofore
unseen battle against Spencer Bourne, a legend among both UK Porsche Club
racers & the Gumball 3000's inner circle of veterans. And yes - for them -
it was a race.
Those days may be over, but the story of what did occur on the Gumball
between 2003 and 2007 has yet to be told.
Behold...The Battle of Rome.
