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!!!
ZR1 vs GT-R at the Nurburgring Sync at 00:00:00
Here is a video combining the GT-R (7:29) run with the ZR1 run (7:26) at
Both GT-R and ZR1 runs are using the original videos in their original
timeline (no time stretching). Both times are off with respect to each
other. So I added a timer using Sony Vegas' timecode Video Event FX in its
The 2 videos were sync'ed at the point immediately before the 00:00:00
started to tick. It's also at this point where the Sony Vegas timecode was
started. Actually, at this starting time, the ZR1 is already ahead (slight
head-start). I could have used the landmarks to sync but I decided to trust
the timings done by both GM and Nissan.
The Nissan timer is closer to the Sony Vegas timer (both end points). The
GM timer seems to get an accumulated delay of a little more than 1 second.
For example, when the ZR1 finished at 7:26.4, the Nissan timer was at
7:27.58 and the Sony Vegas timer was at 7:27.580. When GT-R finished at
7:29.03, Vegas timer was at 7:29.015. The best way to confirm which of
these 3 timers is correct is to use your own stopwatch as this YouTube clip
I would need to create another comparison video where I will stretch the
ZR1 timeline so that it is in sync with the GT-R timer at both 00:00:00 and

Jan Magnussen Attacks the Nurburgring in a Corvette ZR1. Unfortuantely,
this was a day that the 'ring was open to the public and traffic slowed
down the 638 hp Corvette several times. Still, a great way to see how a
professional race car driver attacks one of the most difficult road courses
in the world.
