I have to agree with this. Having followed cars like this shooting video like this, you have to understand what you can and cannot do to keep up, as well as how to do things safely. Knowing they got flicked off by the drivers in the rally indicates they were definitely unsafe.

I've heard of similar escorts being done for Corvette groups.

But the speeds weren't half as crazy as the article makes it sound. At one point, I saw a stock Honda Accord pass the Ford GT.

I don't think money had anything to do with it. More like just knowing the right people.

I thought it was hilarious when the girl in the ferrari gave them the finger. "She gave us the finger and told us to stop....WE'RE IN THE RALLY, WE'RE IN THE RALLY..."

The NJ video with edits makes them sound like jabbering monkeys. I have no idea why NJtimes was given permission to do that. Probably because Youtube sold the video to them.

Those guys remind me of these guys:

I think they were because of their anxiousness to keep up. They broke up the group several times forcing the cars to pass them on the right. The main pack only stayed in the left and stayed at the pace of traffic most of the time.

Absolute power corrupts absolutely. That's why checks and balances are important. I think there wasn't anything illegal about the escort as it's common for cars being escorted to slow down and make a gap so they can ramp up to speed. These guys video just blows it all out of proportion and captures the aggressive moves the cars had to make to re-join their group after the jabbering monkeys slowed them down.

after watching the video again I kept hearing them say "The two hour wait was worth it"

Did these goof balls sit on an overpass somewhere waiting on them to come down the road?? I think it sounds that way

We've done it for the Power Tour, so sure why not? Two hours would have been a bit long for me, but if the timing was completely unknown, that's not bad.
