    Gumball 3000, Pix inside (56K's Beware)

    Took the train in to London yesterday, met up with Legoman to watch the start of the Gumball Rally from Pall Mall.

    Took loads of picture, here's a few from the day.

    Couldn't believe the turn out, must have been in excess of 5000 people there. Considering it wasn't advertised anywhere, a pretty good atmosphere

    Was watching a bit of this last year when it was on Men & Motors! and some guys do it every year in a Pulsar GTi-R and never get further than half way before the Motor Packs up! 5k is alot of money to pay for a short trip!
