We already are six days in America but yesterday was the second day of the Gumball 3000 rally. We departed from New York to Toronto where we worked almost the whole night on the daily report. This night we also were busy making this report. After an early morning call yesterday we departed from Toronto to the GM head office in Detroit.
A job which was not very easy to handle. We had to cross Canada for 380 kilometers to reach the safe grounds of the United States of America. Canada is a beautiful country but the police is very strict. A few pull overs by fellow Ballers happened and even an Audi R8 got impounded. As the police is very strict, it was just a matter of time who would be the first Gumballer that was getting a ticket for speeding. The first car we saw was an Audi RS4 Sedan. Till now we have a clean sheet. Just before the United States border there was the Windsor tunnel. A great sounding tunnel we had to test with the 599 GTO!
At the head office of GM there was a lunch arranged. Because the weather was very bad we decided to leave quickly to Indianapolis where the temperatures reached 33 degrees Celsius. On our way to Indianapolis we saw a couple of other participants, such as Ista Jerygo with their McLaren MP4-12C and the wonderful BMW M3 E92 of Team Red HHH. The speeds of this trip were far above the limit. The police tried to prevent this with airplanes, laser guns and normal police cars but without success. Till now so far so good. In Indianapolis there was a big crowd at the Monument Circle where the cars were on display. Today we will go to the track with a police escort and the cars will be on display there for the whole day. We will enjoy the race today and will leave sunday with destination Kansas.
