Day 3 was a very easy day in terms of the driving. We only had 120 miles to cover as we had decided to take a short detour to go meet “Bad Driver (Bad Driver: 650S Spider vs. 720S)” in Charlotte. After very lightly indulging in the sugar festival called breakfast at the Black Walnut B&B Inn in Asheville, we packed up the cars and headed out. The drive itself took around two hours and was notable only for the really crappy road conditions in the multiple construction zones we had to drive through. Charlotte is a fairly easy city to navigate, especially on a Sunday morning. We went immediately to the Hilton Hotel where we would be spending the night and dropped off our bags. The Hilton was well a Hilton and it could have been located anywhere. The hotel was completely unmemorable while being pleasant and comfortable enough, so everything was just “fine”.
To get ahead of traffic, we got up early, skipped breakfast, loaded up the Maserati & McLaren and hit the road with only a couple of cups of coffee between the two of us. The 400 miles from Charlotte to the “Wine Collectors” (Wine Collector: Senna vs 720S Spider) house in Washington DC were split into two very different parts. The first 110 miles from Charlotte to the Virginia border went by quickly with light traffic. The radar detectors in both cars did not go off once and other than a few construction zones, the roads were in pretty decent shape. We made a fuel and caffeine stop after about 90 miles. There was a police car parked outside the service station when we pulled in and I ran into one of the officers inside. He couldn’t have been friendlier and asked me what the car was and where we were going. I told him we were driving from Dallas to Boston which he seemed quite impressed by. He did ask me how fast the McLaren 650S Spider could go to which I replied 70 mph which got a good laugh. I did offer to give him a tour of the car which he had to decline as a call came in that he needed to go investigate.
