Gumball is over. Some people have more wealth than brains. One of the Porsches hit a local citizen's VW Golf, killing the driver. The crew of the Porsche ran from the scene, got picked up by a fellow competitor's car, but were arrested at the border. It took the Gumball organizers over 24 hours to issue a press release, after their attempts to cover up the news of the accident failed.

Aside from that, all the Porsche Carrera GT's entered in the event have crashed out, a Ford GT was totalled, and many other cars were damaged. Such a waste. All the media are also calling this a "rally" event...which doesn't do the legitimate sport of rally any good at all.

It's a pretty cool event, and the cars are hot, but damn people, learn to drive before you jump in a supercar.

So thats what happened, I couldn't find out anything since yesterday. Apparently posts on the official Gumball forum were being nuked when anyone asked about the incident.

Sad to see it get out of hand, it's always been an over the top kind of event. Wonder what the sponsors are gonna do.

Maybe it will be in NA next year if European countries flip out about this.

Anyone know what happened with that mini "gumball" thing that was being set up around here?

EDIT: it's tomorrow, advertised on craigslist http://vancouver.craigslist.org/eve/313087197.html and his site: www.gumballvancity.homestead.com has expired
