I’m not sure why I’m thinking of this now – perhaps it was triggered by the Las Vegas Grand Prix, or maybe because the event in question is now ten years old, but I feel it’s time to share one of my potentially more consequential interactions with local law enforcement in that part of the world.
Don't mess with Death Valley cops | Thank Frankel it's Friday
Andrew Frankel has been racing cars for over 20 years and testing them for nearer to 30. He is senior contributing writer to both Autocar and MotorSport magazines, sits on the Car of the Year jury and was chief car tester for the Sunday Times for 15 years. He cites driving and writing as the only disciplines for which he has any talent and therefore considers himself vocationally employed. When he is not working he lives quietly in the Wye Valley with his family, a small and unimportant accumulation of cheap old cars and some sheep.
