The Unbelievable Story of Raiti’s Rides

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

If you have been to any of our events, you might have noticed Joe Raiti. His passion for all things automotive began with racing. After hanging up his helmet, he decided to become a High School teacher. He spent 18 years inspiring and educating and began the AP Psychology program at Ridgecrest High School, here in the Tampa Bay area. All the while, he would attend almost every automotive event his schedule would allow. His knowledge from the racing world needed a way to express itself, so he purchased a microphone and a gimbal and started a YouTube channel.

At first, it was just a hobby, but fans around the world began subscribing. Now he has surpassed 99K, we need your help to get Raiti’s Rides to 100k. This prolific popularity has become more profitable than the meager wages Florida pays their educators, so YouTube is now his full-time career. To see what makes his channel unique among automotive content creators is that he explains the most intricate details in a way everyone can understand. He combines his years of teaching experience with automotive knowledge to produce great videos. He does so without the quirks, idiosyncrasies, and manufactured drama that other channels seem to live by. Without further adieu, here is my favorite review. Thanks, Joe for the inspiration and for making our events even better.
