Nice cars! :shock: (even an Enzo!)

But the timing could be better, the weather in Europe is soo bad at the moment.... It's raining almost 24/7...

2 Enzo's are in the rally... they must be haulin' ass in Marocco

Team 132 now reports that the King of Marocco has given orders to the police that the Gumballers can go as fast as they want, without beeing "disturbed". Team 132 reports live from the spooky side of 200kph, now hitting speeds of above 260kph as the police is just waving to them! Many of the faster cars are hitting speeds of above 300kph. "A quite surreal experience" Team 132 reports.

Well, it's basically a classic car rally in which you are given a route from a to b. But instead of using classic cars they're using cars which cost more than the average house :)

This year's route went from Paris => biarritz =>Madrid => Marbella => Marrakech => Barcelona => Cannes.

It is driven in about six days and it's a grand total of 3000 miles long. :)
Now the cool part is that all these guys with all these expensive cars also like to party at night, so instead of going to bed they party....
Resulting in one "tired" mofo going really fast in a very expensive car on a public road... :)

why the hell would someone take that ugly ass H2 to the gumball :?
that's a belgian dude! he's a weirdo, that's the reason he's known over here (and he won the first big brother).

he ended 7th in the race, not bad for a hummer if you ask me

and there was a miura participating? i think they should forbid to use old cars in such a race. there are like way to little left to be destroyed in such a race. even if they're not destroyed, after 6 days of abuse there isn't much left of them
