Gumball 3000

Gumball 3000 is a race accross the nation of the finest racers with the finest cars. It starts in NYC and ends in LA. This is a documentary of one of the drivers and his experience along with the rest of the racers. Lot's of being pulled over and arrested and outrageous ticket.

It's amazing, the tools they have. The cops actually pull over groups of 'em. There's a part in the movie (in Part 1) where they close off the whole freeway to pull over the racers, the guy has a device that lets him hear the police's radio, he hear's the cop say "There's some Ferrari in there, like an F50 or something", and the guys get's pissed and starts cursing, "It's a 360 you fucking moron, what a fucking idiot dipshit cop, can't get my fucking Ferrari right." Hahah, hilarious.

I just got done watching the episode, didn't see Brad. Oh and here's a movie made by the Gumball guys themselves with Burt Reynolds commentating.

Yeah, it usually is in Europe, but there are events in America as well, it's starting to get popular here too.

Nope.

I feel sad for the guy that keeps getting pulled over in the Burt Reynolds commentated one, the guy that gets the best car award, but he couldn't make it because he was in jail with his car impounded, irony. Lmao.

Tony Hawk participated in the event, I just checked on the price of participating, it's 30,000 Pounds which I think is about 60 grand, wow, these people have crazy money. Cost to bring the car over, the cars themselves, plain tickets and to top of it, all the bail money and tickets... crazy.

I definately plan to participate in Gumball when I'm able.

When the cop was chasing down the Ducatti that was trying to out run him.

Overheard on the scanner.
"Ok, I can't tell what state his license plate is, but ......"

Thats cause that license plate ain't from no state.



I miss my drivers license :cry:

Those cars go crazy speeds, in the documentary with Burt Reynolds, the guy breaks his speedometer going 240.

I'm just glad that rich people don't feel like their money buys them out of trouble and they have concern for other people on the road...

Google AKA Rally and Wild West 1500. Same things. The AKA Rally is only 1500 per person to race, same thing, parties, hotels, banquets included.
