Recently the Gardella Racing Rig travelled to Harrison NJ for the opening day at the New York Red Bulls Stadium where Ryan Tuerck & Aaron Colton put on an awesome demo for the Red Bull fans! The venue was packed and people lined the street as far as the eye could see, even though there was still a cold chill in the air. This was the first of many Red Bull demo events that Ryan Tuerck will be sliding through this season, and also the first event that his Solstice was re-wrapped as a complete Red Bull demo car. Together with Colton’s skill there was no lack of excitement, his motorcycle riding abitilites are unparalelled to any other rider that I have ever seen.
Unfortunately earlier in the evening, the actual LS7 demo car was having engine issues, and needed to be sidelined. Luckily the Gardella Racing crew is always prepared, and quickly had to jump into action with Plan B, which consisted of the crew pulling out Ryan’s yellow road racing Solstice, obviously underpowered in comparison to his LS7 demo car, but none the less capable and reliable enough to offer the crowd a great drifting demonstration. You could tell their was a bit of anxiety in the air because the corporate people at Red Bull were unsure of whether or not a quality display of drifting could be brought to us given these circumstances, but once the smoke cleared it was obvious by the reaction of the Red Bull fans that Ryan’s drifting skills, and Aaron’s riding prowess prevailed and an amazing show was without a doubt acheived. Thanks to Brian Casse of Jersey Streets we have the ability of showing you how it all went down!
