I’m Baaaack!

And just in time to jump off a building!

It was nice to take several days off from (real) work and the blog and to spend time with family in Galveston, but it’s good to be home and getting back in my groove. There are lots of things to talk about, like the GM investigation report, my sister’s rental Ford Explorer and the auto races of the last few weeks, among other things.

But first things first – I’m rappelling down a 38-story building on Saturday!

Not surprising, is it? Leave it to Motorista to voluntarily plummet through space. The fact that I’m doing this for a good cause (fundraising for Make-A-Wish) lends this latest escapade some legitimacy but, honestly, I would want to do it anyway! That my crazy adrenaline-seeking also benefits sick kiddos is the icing on the cake.

Want to get involved? Visit my fundraising page HERE and make a tax-deductible donation to Make-A-Wish. Your donation will help grant the wish of a seriously ill child – how cool is that??

If you are in the Austin area, please come to the W Hotel on Saturday between 4 and 5 p.m. and join my family, friends and curious bystanders in watching the spectacle. Costumes are encouraged, but since I’m not allowed to wear high heels or my racing helmet, I’m really out of ideas. Got any?

(Remember, no capes.)

Thanks for your support, race fans. You know you will be hearing all about it!
