Gumball 3000

I found out through Google Video that the Gumball 3000 race has been taking place in Europe lately, and I have to admit the following is incredible. I am also astounded by the feeling of "legality" of the whole thing that you get from the videos...

What do you think of the Gumball 3000 Rally?

That said I had to work the saturday they took off from London last year so I made a detour and got some pics, I shall try and dig them out as there was some intersting cars taking part including the concept Lancia Stratos.

That is my impression as well, so I tend to say 'whatever' to the Gumball thing.

Now, given that they drive crazier than some of my own Neapolitan lunatic neighbours, and the 2 or 3 near-lethal-misses for the 2005 Gumball, I also think there's a highly irresponsible spirit in that bunch. And even when the police stops them, it seems they either pay a fine or play a legal trick, then they're on their way. Scary. I really wouldn't want these guys on the same highway as my wife as she's commuting...

Re: Gumball 3000

Love it. A mate of mine is one of the organisers, but unfortunately I can't get a discount, so it'll be a few years before I can do it.
