Gumball 3000 2016, Dublin, Merrion Square: Day one

By the time I arrived on day one, some of the grid was already waiting, the music was playing and the crowd was growing, and this was just parking the cars up!

Watching the cars roll in one by one was great, I genuinely didn't know what would turn up next.

The Merc came in, then reversed out...

And then Oliver Webb arrived in the BAC Mono, mind your ears.

The rain threatened and I had no coat so thank god it wasn't a wet launch day!

Wrong side of the road for The Hoff!

Watching every car leave the start line was awesome, I wish there were double the amount of cars. The noises, the variety, the burnouts, the NOISES!

Some amazing cars including a Batmobile, the biggest surprise for me was the Gumpert Apollo, what an epic car, sadly it crashed the following day. I'm so glad I got to be a part of the Gumball experience and chuffed I got a t-shirt from the 650S as well. Wish I could be a part of more automotive experiences like this!
