Our application was received yesterday
My buddy Josh and I applied.
We are former roommates, who are going into business together. We had a good time filling out the application and shooting the video. We both already have passports.
I recognize it's a long shot, but man would it be cool to do this race.
Good luck Everyone!!!
TAR 5 FACTS/Info from app drop
I like many of you on this board applied for TAR 5 after finally making the decsion to stop being so dang lazy. Anyway I had delivered my package to the address listed in Santa Monica. Not sure if this has been discussed yet but it is not a production office as many believed but instead a mailbox etc type of packing store. I walked in at 4:40 today deadline day and was greeted with about 300 or so packages scattered about the floor. Anyway I ended up having a lengthy discussion with the shop owner and found out some interesting info. It appears that a number of people drove in from out of state to hand deliver their apps wrongly assuming the address was the production office and they might be able to meet someone from the TAR staff to increase their chances of being picked. i think the farthest he said someone came from was ohio, Yikes!! Anyway I met several other applicants and we briefly discussed what we had done on the video etc. Okay now back to the interesting stuff, first my app was the last accepted for TAR 5. How do i know this you may ask well we waited until the owner said he would not accept anymore then had him sign his business card with a note saying we were the last team to make it and attached that to the front of our package. The guy estimated that approx 10,000 applications had come in for TAR 5, a 1/10,000 chance at winning a million isnt bad at all :)
I know its a little of topic but not that the application process is over im curious exactly what people did to stand out?
