Super Affiliate Racing at Affiliate Summit West

Last year at Affiliate Summit West, dk failed to get me dinner reservations at Joël Robuchon. To make it up this year, he and Ryan Niddel of All Phase Hosting tried to get me to kill myself by driving a $300,000 Ferrari 458 Italia around the Las Vegas Speedway. To make sure I would have some competition, they invited Shoemoney and a few of my readers.

While the main race featured me, Shoe, Ryan and dk, 15 readers/followers/guests were also given keys to over $2 million worth of Ferrari and Lamborghini supercars. The winner of the race would be given $1,000 to donate to his favorite charity.

Everyone’s on the Team John Chow bus heading to the Las Vegas Speedway for some fast and furious racing.

At the driver’s briefing. We were given a quick lesson on what to do and what not to do. The number 1 rule is: DON’T CRASH THE CAR!!!!

Jane Orlov is looking good inside the Lamborghini LP 570-4 Superleggera. The car has more power than her home country. I couldn’t drive it because I was too tall for it. Score one for Ferrari for making a car that can fit tall guys.

The weather in Las Vegas was extremely cold, and that made for a less than ideal racing conditions. My Ferrari almost lost control going into turn 4 because I went in too hot and lifted off the gas while in the turn. This made the rear end come around and I would have spun off the track if the 458′s electronic nannies (traction control system) didn’t kicked in to save my butt. In the end, Shoemoney beat me by half a second, Ryan came third, and dk came last.

I want to thank All Phase Hosting for hosting the event. Everyone had a great time and I can’t wait to see what crazy plans they have to top this.

John, Sucks you didn’t win and at least you didn’t spin off the track and crash the car!

John Chow January 19, 2013 at 12:49 am

Ya, thank God for traction control!

Jane Orlov January 18, 2013 at 2:26 pm

Sometimes it’s good to be 5’2″ ;-) Awesome-sauce John… It was super-fun!

Jonh,
I so freaking jealous! What a rush!

I like the phrase “The number 1 rule is: DON’T CRASH THE CAR!!!!”.

I bet that the number 2 rule is: DON’T CRASH THE CAR!!!!

By the way John…You drive like my Mom!:-)

John Chow January 19, 2013 at 12:50 am

DON’T CRASH THE CAR is probably all ten rules. :P

Wow, looks like you guys had a ton of fun! Wish I could be there!

Enzo Testa January 18, 2013 at 6:23 pm

ahh….NO THANKS. I am not getting into one of those unless I owned it. Knowing me I would probably crack it up and have to pay for it some way or another…lol

The worst thing that could happen is you get yourself kill. That’s not so bad, is it? :P

John, it was a pleasure meeting you and those that were with you at the event. A huge thanks to All Phase Hosting, you, DK and Shoemoney for making it such a fun time!!

Wow John, did not know the Gallardo is too short for you.

John Chow January 19, 2013 at 9:20 am

Ya, with the helmet, I can’t fit comfortably inside. It might be OK if I didn’t wear the helmet. Also I was in the Superleggera, which had non-reclining race seats.

Tyler January 19, 2013 at 11:23 am

I barely fit in the Superlaggera and I’m 4 inches shorter than John. My helmet was stuck to the roof and had to tilt my head to the side. I found the Aston Martin Vantage a more comfortable ride. Either way, it was still cool to be able to drive a Lamborghini!

wow it looks like you guys had a rocking time.Wish I could be there.
