Reakon they ring you up on PNC and go...hmmm this guy likes points better slap a few more on.

Met the cheeky girls, their mum is fit too! In fact I was lucky enough to met a lot of famous people this weekend and hung around with the Dirty Sanchez boys quiet a bit! They are fun! I was interviewed for some TV channel too and I think was dancing with some famous model at the launch party, hard to remember all the details!

We drove through the crowds for about a mile which was hilarious, the band and the van got a great reception and when we got to the end of Piccadilly a cop on a bike started to follow us and pulled me over. Dangerous load is the heinous crime as the boys were in the back of the van as you can see with no seats! I'd already driven past I guess 500 police, nice this guy was trying to up his quota to get his donut bonus at the end of the month, fcuker. As he wrote the ticket cars were driving past at over 100! Prick.

Yeah it's idiots like him who have their head in the police rulebook and not in common sense land that give the force in general a bad rep - you're right its totally about easy numbers and figures.

We were crowding the M20 Junction 5 and tbh it was potentially dangerous, they could have moved us all on but they just came down and had a look, saw that we were being sensible about it and left.

Infact I'd never seen so many police on the motorways (usually see none). All the cars that came down the M20 were split up by police bike escorts which I think was a good fairly good idea - they couldn't speed but tbh thats what you goto Europe for :o

Held up by the Eurostar at the end of it anyways.

I hear that one of the racers has been arrested and is being held in prison in either Belgium or Germany for doing 170. It seems that the Police now cover the entire route trying to make cash and of course ensure their safe, accident free passage. I'm sure burglars know when the Gumball is heading to town so go and get their crowbars knowing the fuzz will be busy elsewhere!

Pardon my ignorance but this car (grid pos 2)

137679680_1c6278eaa5.jpg

What is it ?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Its a Maserati M12 :o

Had cause to go on a drive with one in the summer,

probably the same owner as they are rare as hens

teeth over here (or anywhere!).

Half a million quids IIRC and not very suited to the cotswold

roads that we took that day. Awesome car, owned by an ex

Esprit V8 owner.

Bibs, can't believe you got a ticket! Well, I can actually. But it's a load of bollox. If you were driving on a private road, how come I wasn't allowed to stand on it? And if it wasn't a public road, where's the problem?

No where's the pics from the party? I'm dying to see the famous lighter and fire-extinguisher photo! :o

Is your seatbelt on? I want to try something

You stud, it's all a haze! :o:):P

Sorry the police got you like that :P

My dad was in traffic for over thirty years and he now has an even lower

respect of todays police force than me, and i regard them as a lazy boys club.

The Goldie Lookin' Chain are opening and starting the race and being the proud owner of their Bedford Rascal A-Team van from one of their videos I'm driving them over the start line to set the rally off. Nice :D

The film of last years Gumball is out now, 3000 Miles.

We (erm, the GLC) are not in the film much having only completed 800 yards of the 3,000 miles but there are some nice pics in the 'special features' on the DVD :)

Check me, I'm famous :)
