Just got back from the start of the 2005 Gumball 3000 Rally, which kicked off from Waterloo Place, Central London.
I managed to sneak into the VIP area, which meant I had an excellent view of the cars leaving the service area. However, the best part of the afternoon was when I was tapped on the shoulder by my favourite driver Jenson Button ? I couldn?t belive it!
I was standing in front of his Honda and he wanted to get out! I was snapping the cars with my camera phone, so I took a couple of Jenson as he brushed past me to get into car.
I also took a video of him doing a three-point turn to get out (it?s in mobile-mpeg4 format, best viewable in quicktime).
Finally, you can check out my other photos from today’s Gumball 3000 Rally event.
Maybe next year I’ll find a kind soul happy to give me £10,000 and lend me their Ferrari, Hummer or other suitable “super-car” to enter the 2006 rally…
