Thanks Alex, great pictures, high quality, and true spirit of the gumball! Btw, what happened here???
Michael Ross hit some debris in the road, pierced his transmission fluid and damaged his wheel and tire. Civilians behind us got a flat and pulled up to fix it. Ross limped to Prague and had the car fixed overnight...

Ross and Team Polizei were in the lead, but this ended that. About 10 cars, including Jodie Kidd and Aidan, as well as the Silver Carrera GT and others stopped to help. I remember quite well who didn't!

Best,
Alex

Great pics there, thanks:biggrin:

Any fuel problems in Croatia? The fuel quality is disastrously low on many(especially INA) gas stations in Croatia and has been known to cause damage to high performance engines and modern common rail diesels.

Actually, he wasn't who I was referring to.
That information will emerge in my diary, and in the Gumball Memoir I'm writing.

There always are, i don't think it'd be interesting if there were all "white hats".
Alex, did you get to know those russians with the yellow CGT?, i saw them on a video by GT3000 going wild on some highway, but were there like that during the whole race/rally?.. Did you get to drive with them?

He's a russian guy with his (very cute) girlfriend.
Last year he had a black Porsche Turbo I think, with russian plates.
They kind of keep to themselves during the rally (or at least I never really communicated with them), and the only time when we drove with them, near lake Balaton in Hungary, they were taking it easy on 2 lanes roads and we overtook them rather quickly.
I don't like yellow cars usually but he's done his nicely (yellow wheels!)
