I asked the Gumball press section long time ago about VAG-cars - i.e. RS6, RS4, Bugatti, Bentley etc. but at that time they did not know.
They promised to let me know but as I said long time ago...

We'll just have to wait and see.

Eeh.. Why bother, it's just a VW! :p Nice paint job I have to admit. And that garage is just WICKED!! A car thief would probably get caught because he would spend 2-3 hours just picking out his favourite. :D Though I bet that garage is kind of heavily guarded so he probably wouldn't even get a chance... So cool! If heaven is anything like that garage then I wanna go there! :hihi:

April 24th, 2003, 17:50
With a sponsor or two I'm as ready as can be :race:

April 24th, 2003, 21:33
I heeard there will be a race this summer in europe, but don`t know what, who, where and when exactly :).. anybody heard anything? :)

@erik and krabu: it are only the tickets that make this stuff so expencive, or?

April 24th, 2003, 21:40
there was one more RS4 taking part @gumball.. found one picture yet :)


April 24th, 2003, 22:46

There are a couple of races in Europe this summer. :race:
Only read this thread http://www.rs6.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=570 and you'll find over 10 races in Europe. :eek:
Well, fact is that the entry tickets ain't that expensive afterall. 8000 $ (i think) for two persons ain't that much...but then you have the gasoline issue and the ticket issue to take care of.
And if your looking on Gumball this year and 2002 we hade the problem of shipping, plane tickets, pre & after hotel nights and all that.
So participating in a USA Gumball will cost around 25 000$ (everything) for two persons. If the race are in Europe that cost will probably be around 15 000$ instead - that is a little less... :)
