    Gumball 3000

    Hi all

    Just found out that this year's Gumball Rally is starting off from London tonight at 6.

    http://www.gumball3000.com/content/html/content.html?

    The cars are on display all day in Waterloo Place till then, so I'll be going up this afternoon to take a look

    Worth checking out if you're nearby

    Will try and get some good pics. Dunno how busy it will be though.

    You sign up on their website. Cost is 10 grand for a car with two people. Lot of money, but it does include everything: accommodation in top hotels, parties, food and cost of sea transport etc. You also need enough luck to get a space, though you're more likely to get in if you have a cool or unusual car

    You DONT need a Supercar.

    Last year the winners of the Spirit of Gumball award drove a 2CV!
    They managed a top speed of 73MPH!
