On Sunday 120 supercars set off from Pall Mall in London for the Gumball Rally 2006. Celebs such as Pink, Tony Hawk, Jody Kidd and Tim Westwood (shown right, he’s the Radio 1 DJ who tends to say, “Yeah baby girl, bow down and kiss the ring. Zactly!”) will be driving to Vienna, Budapest, Belgrade, Phuket, Bangkok then somehow across to Salt Lake City and Las Vegas before finishing in Los Angeles this coming Sunday.
Each car has a Windows Mobile 5.0 device (Westwood here has the MDA Compact we’ve reviewed) from T-Mobile along with CoPilot Live, which is tracking their movements onto this webpage.
Maximillion Cooper, who founded the Gumball Rally, is blogging with photos, videos and text here, plus you can equip your MDA with satnav here.
