    Been entered in a 'Gumball' Race!

    Got a phone call from my sisters partner today, telling me that he had entered me into a semi 'gumball' style race from the Humber Bridge to Whitby. It has been set up by the boss of his work, and is for high performance cars only (2.0ltr plus).

    Its not especially a race, because it involves us stopping quite a few times to obtain clues as to where to go next along the route. Should be a right laugh!

    Im up against a number of very quick motors, such as an Impreza WRX, Golf VR6, and a metal Fiesta, which features a 3.0 V6 out of a Mondeo, in its boot!!

    As i said, its not really a full on race, as we all leave at different times, and hae to take certain routes, but itll be great fun, and the winner gets £200!

    Ill be taking pics and video clips on the day (23rd of October).

    Sounds like a good laugh mate , suppose that £200 is bit of an incentive to speed though :|
