That is why they will never, ever call it a 'race' which is what it is. They say all the right things on the web site about blah blah safety this, and blah blah safety that. Anyone that writes about it certainly has a different story to tell. It is just the Cannonball Run with a politically correct web site. Since it is still pretty low-key, it will survive for a while, but it won't take long for someone to be 'outraged' by it, and demand shutting them down.

The first time someone falls asleep and croaks themselves or t-bones an Focus wagon full of Nuns the sh*t will hit the fan, grieving family members and their ambulance chasing lawyer will "demand answers" from the IBA on the 6 oclock news, the whole thing will be tut-tutted by the talking heads, some junior senator will get face time by "doing something about this deadly event" and that'll be all she wrote. Game over...
