Sentence fragments that relate to the images in the above gallery: Porsche 911, Ford Mustang, Hyundai Genesis Coupe, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution with a weird camera rig in the trunk. Mulholland Highway, part of which was controlled by cops. A producer-type person who glared at me when we stuck a camera out the window. Tanner Foust, looking kind of tired. Nifty Top Gear license plates. And a bunch of members of the California Highway Patrol.

(Thanks to Stuart at Kilometer Magazine — we shared a car on the Jaguar drive — for taking the pics.)
