I happened to see that today itself. Ah, love those usual Monday updates on that site.

Did you check out the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione (sp?) ?

Oh the Revas were only meant to go up untill a few miles, to the Waterloo station from there they were to be loaded on the Eurostar to Brussels and from Brussels the Ventura Fetish was to take over - its the first electric supercar after which a hydrogen powered BMW V12 was to take over and finally they are scheduled to cross the finish line on a electric scooters - it is a part of their Gumball goes GREEN campaign (not to mention almost all the other cars are gas guzzlers!).
The Revas are very popular in London - they dont have to pay the congestion charge, no parking charge and they cost a lot less than the Toyota Prius - the other car that does not face congestions charge plus petrol costs twice as much as it normally does in India.

Whats with you guys and the fondness for Sheilks and arabs.!!! At least in UK and Europe they are not liked as they maybe in the sub continent. Yes they maybe rich but most of them are Numbskulls. Im speaking from experience. When they come to UK they think they can treat the asians more or less similar to like they treat em back in Middle East and they are more than often on a rude awaking call.!!!

Anyway going back to Gumball i have a few Videos from sundays event and will post that to you guys in a bit ok.
In an earlier post someone said Snoop was doing the race no it was Exhibit doing it. And Danny Dyer was doin it too. Lovely super model Caprice was in a Blinged Gold Range Rover.

Yep The Gumball has been cancelled. One of the Ruf Pokers went on a head on colloison with a VW golf at 150 mph. The driver of the Golf died of a heart attack and his wife is seriosuly ill. Hence to show a mark of respect Gumball has been terminated this year.

Well thats Sad really

Ciao
