700HP in the Baltic Lands: Latvia Part 1 of 2 - /LIVE AND LET DRIVE
Since Alex only wants to drive in places American tourists NEVER go, we sent him to Riga, Latvia to meet up with our old friend Oto Godfrey. In Part 1 of our journey to the Baltic Lands, Alex has a look inside and outside the capitol city, where we find houses made of wood, one of the fastest cars in the country, and a KGB Headquarters. Next week on Part 2 of Latvia, we take the car to the track to drift with an F3 driver, visit a DMV from the far future, and fire AK-103 assault rifles at paper assailants.
