This is The Dumball Rally 2008.


It's when a load of not-so-rich, not-so-famous people get together in their fancy rubbish cars and drive ... all across Europe - just about the opposite of the rubbish Gumball.

Why let the rich and famous have all the fun? Dumball is one of those drunken pub ideas that actually happened.

This year we're fundraising for War Child: www.warchild.org.uk

Does this police car go up to 88?

Switzerland. Sunday morning the police damanded that gigawatss stop! They didn't seem at all keen on the massive fins that were attached to the rear.... After lenghty negotiations. Team gigawatts avoided jail by sacrificing their huge erection as a trade off! Don't believe it? See the pic.

Swiss rain fest

(viewed 1014 times)
This is the view from the front of the raging horn this morning as we attempt to keep up with team neverwait. Its pouring with rain, the cars are old, the brakes are rubbish. So we're doing 90mph at the start of our 600 mile drive to Zagreb via the Alps. Now that's dumballing!

And oh yeah, last night.

And oh yeah, last night. We arrived around 10ish - Colin H had done well, got there a lot earlier and found us a jazz festival in the heart of Brusselles. There goes are one hope of an early night...

So, we met up with Raging Horn and Team Embassy, moule and steak frites all round, then once the old folks (you know who you are) had gone to bed, Dumball One met with up with old Leeds friend and professional cider taster Matt 'Rug' Paris, who just happened to be in the heart of the EU. Here you should be able to see Rick's shiney bald head listening to some scatty fringe jazz in a nice open fronted bar.

And i can't resist putting in this one of me 'milking' Geary at one of our hideously expensive petrol breaks. I love the Dumball. And it loves you.

RIP the coffin dodgers

(viewed 951 times)
150 miles into day one and the ex funeral car which was on its second engine as the first blew up, took exception to being asked to do more than 35 mph and departed from this mortal coil somewhere in belgium. In true dumball style we piled the stranded occupants into the two cars in convoy with the dodgers, having been abandoned by our team leaders who were off allegedly "to sort the nights hotel out". We r now rolling again having found the Hackney Carriage who have put the meter on for the dodgers. As our team leaders say. "Never let the facts get in the way of a good story".Jbub raging horn.
