With how much he flies around, I'm sure he flew corporate anyway.

It's probably a LAF corporate jet maybe.

it's a rental jet and I am sure LAF will gladly pay for it as ability to travel fast and without hassles of security and waiting means LA can raise more than enough money to offset the costs of the rental. Security for him is a big issue too. I think it totally makes good financial sense - as it does for auto executives or Wall Street CEOs too, by the way - let's be honest.

I think people overestimate the "plush" factor - traveling still sucks, first class, private jet or not. Especially if you have to fly 100+ days a year.

Where did you get those pictures? Are these from his photographer, www.elizabethkreutz.com?

Keep in mind the size of the entourage that the man travels with. It would be much cheaper to rent a jet than pay for coach tickets for all his peeps.

$6-7,000 per hour.

Now you know the real reason for the comeback. $1,000,000 to show up an race buys a lot of jet fuel.
