Running of the Bulls is an event put on by Exclusive, Inc. and the California Highway Patrol, as a fundraiser for the CHP 11-99 Foundation, a charity which helps members of the CHP and their families. The event started with a reception on August 16th at the Four Seasons Hotel in Newport Beach, CA and then a drive from Newport Beach up to Monterey, CA for the Concorso Italiano.
This year roughly 70 Lamborghini Diablos participated in the event.
And last but not least, a real life Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary, owned by none other than Mario Andretti, could be won by buying a lottery ticket.
A collection of this size is a true experience for just about everybody, and to keep everything going the way it should, an equally large number of CHP policemen were assembled.
A drive with all these Lamborghini's would bring the cars finally to the 21st annual Lamborghini National Meet in Monterey California, were this gathering of mostly Diablo's would line up with several other Lamborghini's and Italian car makes to celebrate the 2000 Miura Reunion meeting.
As a tribute to the latest Lamborghini flagship, the Murciélago, a nice parade of V12 Bulls drove around Sant'Agata
