So the Gumball rally started a few hours ago and was flagged off from New York City.

Anyone who lives along the route of the rally should definitely stop by to see the cars. its usually a bit mental with the crowds but definitely worth it.

Here are some of the cars that will be taking part.

Here is what Maximillion Cooper, the founder of the race will be driving

Team Habibeez's cars - I believe there are a couple of Indians in the team.

I attended the Toronto round last night and had a great time! The crowds were going nuts! The Gumballers were a bit delayed arriving into Toronto but there was still a crowd at 11 in the night when everyone started trickling in. The highlight for me was The Bugatti Veyron Gransport that sounded great. It wasn't loud and aggressive like the other cars but you almost got a sense of the power that the W16 under the hood had. Besides that there was a 599 GTO, an MP412C, a couple of Aventadors, a CTS-V Wagon, 458s, an SLS coupe, an SLS roadster, a Bentley Brooklands, the Sharjah 1 DHC and a couple of Ghosts. Infact 3 of the Rolls Royces were driven by people of Indian origin with one of them blasting some punjabi music on the drive in. Another Rolls had a Maata ka dupatta tied around the rear view mirror. Overall an amazing experience. Theres a certain amount of 'douchebaggey' involved in an event like this but once you get over that, its a tonne of fun.

I tried taking some pictures but unfortunately most of them are rubbish. I'm sure there will be better pictures posted online.

The SLR had a breakdown. The Sharjah 1 DHC had a problem with a tire and needed to be flat bedded. I believe almost everyone has got a ticket so far.

I also found out that Charles MOrgan took part in the rally in a Morgan Three Wheeler.
