Re: What is everyone expecting from the 2006 Gumball?

I don't know, ... i don't know

I just hope that this beyond extremes rally will only happen once, i hope the 2007 rally is going to be a "normal" rally, a route without airplanes.
I think it might be fun to do once, but if they do it again, what will the gumball be, driving, flying, partying or getting broke (40.000 GBP ),...
I just hope Gumball stays Gumball

Re: What is everyone expecting from the 2006 Gumball?

And that's the point.

40.000 pounds is a very handsome price, who will want to pay more, maybe 5 or 6, but not more!
And they wont make 2007 Gumball Cheaper if there would be one, would they?

Yes, i'm shure there will be some very good other rallies (for example Ant and Pete rally), but until now i thought the Gumball was the best rally of them all, and i think it's a shame that Max is going to stop organising it

I have heard these rumours, but as far as I know GUmball HQ has not said anything about this.

Quite simply put I don't beleive this rumour.

Keep Gumballing
