I've actually seen it before but I always watch it again because I think it is hilarious.

What I really want to know is if that is someone actually driving or was it the computer who was in control? If it was someone driving I am impressed!

Fake news. Great video, but unfortunately itís a Linux generated fake......or so Iíve been told. Pretty great video regardless. Could not have been easy to generate, all the detail and such.

Edit: I may try one one the way up and one on the way down and see which is better. I think the Tappan Zee route would have more traffic, but I may do both and see which is faster. Thanks.
Take 287 across the Tappan Zee Bridge. Then 684 North which runs into 22 North. I do it all the time.

Thanks Frank. As long as it's not at rush hour, that's a good route. Thanks....

You can also take Rte 7, but it's a bit scary (towing with trailer). I took it once for an alternative to 22. I don't think I will do that again!

Always amazed when this video comes around that people mistake it for real. Between the unrealistic camera angles and pans, the smoke that is to consistent and the lack of rubber marks on the circuit overall. I will admit itís good, but not good enough. There is another video of a super bike sliding through corners that everyone always contends is real to.

It was a bit windy and very desolate. If you broke down, I don't think anybody would find you for weeks. I remember it following a river most of the way. At least that's how it felt to me coming home late after a race weekend.

OK, mental note. Avoid Rt 7.
Thanks..

Lol at Rt 7 being considered desolate. It's not Park Ave but I think it's far from desolate considering it's the only major road in CT between the Danbury exit of 84 and Limerock.

Bruce, we all take 22 from where I am. If you can get over to it, that's the best route in my opinion.

It was right over the CT border where I broke down. no moon that night. No lights. Very unique experience. Amenia NY I think. . Those last Lime Rock events of the year...There is only 1 Sheriff in entire county so he has to be prepared for anything. I had to ask. It increased my fear of the evening ahead. scared.
