Show Summary

Adam Carolla and the Professor Sandy Ganz jump into the lap of luxury in this episode. They jump a private jet from JetSuite and fly into Thermal California, the home of Thermal Motorsports. What’s the ride in from the airport… an Aston Martin Rapide. We meet up with Emma Gwyther who tells us more about the Thermal Motorsports race track and lifestyle. The good times never seem to end, when Lexus drops off a long term ‘Loaner’ car for Adam. We take a peek at his new Lexus ISF.

Special thanks to Emma Gwyther for putting the Thermal Motorsports tour together and JetSuite for the quick lift out to Thermal in their Embraer Phenom Jet (and the ice cold beer!), and lastly the fine folks at Desert European Motorcars for the use of the Aston Martin Rapide.
