Gumball 3000

Who's heard of it. Last night i downloaded a dvd quality copy of it 800megs worth. It's like the movie cannon ball. Wow 8 days of street racing across america, and at 10k a car its mostly high end cars that race. I cannot put itno words how amazing this vid is. Yoing pommie bird 20yr (mad hottie) old flew her brand new lambo from england to the states to compete, got about 30 speeding fines and managed to get arrested about 5 times. But hey she can afford it, and with no BF to hold her back she loved it. Arg if only i were rich.

Re: Gumball 3000

I love the bloke in the black lambo who cuts sik in the parking lot and destroy's his new rubber. Ahh what would rubber like that be worth, lambo $5oo,ooo+. $8o,ooo in mods yep he can afford it. Best part is the end when they are giving the awards out top wack goes to adrian (i think) he's not here hes in La county jail and his car has been impounded 240mph ticket. Nice car he has but the bastard always had problems. It is the kointhingy majig.

Your thinking of the "Mischief 3000" DVD, this is the same rally "Gumball 3000" but done by the Mischief group (complete knobs - www.teckademics.com). The Gumball 3000 is done by the creaters of the Gumball rally (www.gumball3000.com)and is narrated by Bert Reynolds. The Gumball 3000 DVD is the year after the Mischief one aswell.

If you are interested in these type of rallies, there is also the "Players Run" - www.playersrun.com

Re: Gumball 3000

I wanted to race the Scumball 3000 (same thing as Gumball 3000, runs on same road, similar time, except its free entry and no prize money) with one of my friends in the states in a 302 powered fox-body Mustang. We still might do it one day...
