That is the infamous accident involving Ron Kimble, a kind of demi-god in the exotic car-racing circles. Of-course not for his driving style as you can see. Every Gumball he hires a car (mostly a Mercedes AMG) for the purpose. Watch his Supercar rally next year. Touted to be even bigger and better than Gumball.

Another god (for all the wrong reasons again, except his driving), is Lonman. Drives a Porsche 911 996 GT2. Took it to the US for the 2002 round. Did a crazy 208 mph on highway/freeways. Was never caught by the police who tried hard with their Fords at 90 mph.

Gumball is for the crazy and moneyed. A total treat for us enthusiasts.

That is a Lamborghini Diablo VT 6.0.

Thumbs up 2005 gumball!

Guys check this link out,

http://board.ultimaterally.com/forum...pic.php?t=1175

for more pictures

http://www.gumball3000.com/content/html/index_rp.html

It has the portfolio of all the participants for this year;s gumball. The surprise was team - 100. It had one Narein Karthikeyan driving a Phantom (not sure forgot)!

Blimey! Must have got a sponsor i guess. There were a few other Indians on the list too. One crazy guy got his Lambo impounded, continued on his SL 500 and totalled it. Got his Lambo back and messed that too. Must be a real nut to wreck two exotics!

Have a look anyways. Lots of cars and some pretty famous personalities too. But too bad Kim didnt take part this year. He is busy with his own version of the gumball aka the Ultimate Rally.
