Don't the organizers never get tired of insisting and assuring, that the Gumball is not a race?You should read his book. Its a bit oddly written I think, but once you get into the meat its bloody riveting!
Does he still do these things? I got the feeling he'd had enough and he'd done all he wanted.
They really should at least have a 5 minute bit on him. He's easily one of the best gumballers.
I mean check this out
The man took it very seriously, he wasnt really in to showing off... he just wanted to win. In there he's got a bout a million sat navs, radios, police radar scanners and jammers, Night vision (thats the cowled screen just above the center air vents and the same screen direcly infront of the co-pilot), he even has a pair of gyro-stabilised military spec binoculars for the co-pilot to use for spotting. On his cross country run he got a friend in a light aircraft to fly ahead of his route to scout for police. He was prepared to the max and he prepared to win. In his book he comes across as very scornful or annoyed with the chumps who turn up in a Lambo with a day bag and a sat nav and thats it.
Just a feature on that M5 and all its tech would be amazing.
And I wouldn't consider that Russian roulette with cars "driving skills". But that's my personal opinion.
