Back in the 1990s, Yilmaz, the owner of the "High Jazz" bar in Kas, was a taxi driver in New York City. One day Bill Cosby came out of NBC Studios and stopped Yimaz's cab, asking him to be on the David Letterman show. He was on the show that night. Some time later, David Letterman had the Indianapolis 500 champion, Jacques Villeneuve, as a guest on the show. He set up a race between a NYC taxi driver, and called Yilmaz back on the show. The two raced, and Yilmaz won!!! When I heard about the race from some friends in Kas, I checked it out on YouTube. Here's the video.
