Yes, this was too obscure, and too interesting not to write about. And although the stunt, performed by daredevil and wakeboarding champion Jorge Gill, is currently being investigated by police because of the speeding Ferrari that was driving at 84mph in a 60mph limit… it is pretty darn impressive all the same!
I think the jist of it is this… he should have got permission, if he had then we would have been seeing this impressive feat for all the right reasons. However, Jorge Gill will probably rocket as somewhat of a cult hero now due to the controversy and ‘naughty’ nature of his stunt. Tut tut tut Jorge!
