30-year-old Gregory Roselli was arrested early Friday morning after rear-ending another car. Roselli, who was participating in the illustrious Bullrun Rally, was racing at 100 mph with about 15 other cars on the Turnpike in Orange County.
The Florida Highway Patrol officers were already on their way when the accident occurred, as they had been receiving complaints about the many high-speed drivers. All the other cars were gone by the time police arrived.
One of the rear tires of Roselli’s Audi R8 apparently separated from the car, which sent him straight into a barrier wall before he hit Holly Sadler’s four-door Honda. Neither was injured.
Roselli was booked into the Orange County Jail and is being charged with participating in an unlawful race and reckless driving, and his bail was set at a mere $1,200, a small amount compared to the rally’s $20,000 entry fee.
Bullrun Rally is an invitation-only cross-country expedition in which participants drive in 100 luxury cars from Las Vegas to Miami in one week. The famed party tour has checkpoints in the nation’s most electrifying cities. This year’s event began July 8 and ended July 15.
