Shame about the rain, though...:mech:

Quattro Gmbh Chassis obviously ! ! !!
And trust me she was not the only one.....
Mr Kimble is out of jail and in the Gumball apparently :D

Whats the story on that Kimple?
How long was he in the "slammer"? and why?
He drove some sweet rides if I am correct
Kim Schmitz was prisoned for defraudation of taxes. He's a veery crazy typ.... watch the movies on his hompage (www.kimble.org) and you will get to know his definition of fun.

We were on the Gumball in an RS6 (one of 2 grey ones). Had a great time, put a report up at www.freds.com (look for Gumball Diary).
Hi to all those who were there, it was extreme...

Hi freds and welcome to RS6.com!
If you have more pics to share please e-mail to me firstname.lastname@example.org
Any mods done to your RS6? :incar:

I was the co-driver (Thats me in the photo having a chat with a Spanish Policeman) The guy who owns the RS6 has just paid his deposit on the Le Mans Quattro ready at the end of '05.

Kimble My arse, he's the number one pompous prick going, at other people's expenses. Most of the shit he uses to flaunt his pompous lifestyle if hired/rented.
A massive welcome aboard, glad you found this place, about time we had a Gumball veteran join the boards. :D
P.S Excuse my 'french'. :eye:

Thank you for the kind welcome - Didn't really mix with Kimble so can't comment, I do know that the picture of the 840 above was not him though, he turned with 2 Mercs. The 840 was modified to have an additional 2 pipes which when a button was pushed through flames out of the back, as you can see. These guys also launched fireworks from the sunroof - they were in the true spirit!!
Additionally there were 4 guys in an RS4 who have video of themselves reaching 196 MPH, as they were celebrating they discovered that one of them had slept through the whole thing (fortunately he was not the driver!).
As for us, we were told the RS6 would max out at 155, we sailed past that up to 170 when it just stopped accelerating. My friend is currently number 3 in the UK to get the Le Mans Quattro when it is released in 2005 and we shall be Gumballing again in that in 2006 - estimated top speed of 215 so we shall be competitive.
