Motorista Presents: the Indy 500 Pink Watch Party!

We came, we saw, we had a great time! For those of you who may be new to the scene, I decided to host a “pink” watch party for the Indy 500 to support driver Pippa Mann, who was sponsored by Susan G. Komen and drove a pink car in the race. Read more background […]

I have never been to Florida, and never had any real desire to go. But now I’m moving to Miami. Why, you ask? THIS. A luxury beach condo tower, with an elevator that takes you AND YOUR CAR right up to your condo, and leaves you AND YOUR CAR in your condo. DESIGNED BY PORSCHE. […]

Just who is Motorista?

Who am I, and why should you care? By day, I am a trial lawyer (hence the high heels) representing people in business disputes.  By evening and weekend, I am a car enthusiast, wanna-be racer, and motorsports attendee.  I live in the Austin, Texas area amidst a recurring cast of characters (some human, some furry), […]
