Hello Moscow

Authored By Brian

Ten minutes ago, I took off on a Lufthansa flight from San Francisco for Moscow. I’m flying courtesy of Porsche North America on my way to cover their factory entries in the TransSyberia 2008 Rally for SPEEDtv.com. For the first five days, I’m hanging out in Moscow watching the team and drivers prepare for the 4350 mile rally race. Along with three other journalists, I’ll attend the pre-race tech inspection, a Red Square photo-shoot and watch the first stage from a helicopter. Team USA are the defending champions and there is a lot of bragging rights on the line here. This is one of the last great adventure races in the world drawing entries from all corners of the world.

You can learn more about the event itself at the website above and see pictures of the Porsche Cayenne TransSyberia in this flickr pool.

All told, I’ll be gone until July 26th circumnavigating the world going East. I’ll see you when I get back. Or SMS you from a Russian prison. :)

    Just curious, did you send this from the plane or just type it up then post it after the flight? Wasn’t sure if Lufthansa now has in-flight Internet connection. That would be cool. Have a great time. I’m enjoying the blogs thus far.

    Roy – there was an ethernet port on the plane in business class but I actually just scheduled the post in advance. :) I have an update coming today…
