Back story:
In December of '07, the seven time F1 champion Michael Schumacher, fearing he would be late to the airport, asked the taxi driver if he could drive.  As quoted by the taxi driver: "He drove at full throttle around the corners and overtook in some unbelievable places."  Full Story: HERE.  At that instant, he had a new business idea - a Taxi business comprised of Ferraris (of whatever manufacturer) and real drivers that can actually get you to the airport in time for your flight.



How it all got started:
 
A couple of us had been following the 24 Hours of LeMons races with interest.  The concept of $500 cars racing for 24 hours was interesting.  Matt noticed that for '08 they were bringing the races to the East coast.  He posted on our local SCCA chapter's forum to see if anyone was involved.  That is all it took for us to start a team.  Initial interest was off the charts with more than 25 drivers wanting to be involved.  Those numbers dwindled as the true scope of the project became apparent.  Racing $500 cars are interesting - turning wrenches and installing rollcages that cost more than the car is less so.
