Gumball 3000 2012

Does anyone know exactly where in Detroit the checkpoint will be setup?
Thanks
Matt

This is what I was able to find (little link that says bigger map) - http://g.co/maps/d5y73

It does not have the check point but seems to track everything out so my plan was to head down there and see where they are setting up. It looks to be by campus martius park because they get off the highway and do a small loop before getting back on.

If someone has more details I would love to know though

Their next stop is Toronto, correct? Anyone know if they are taking the bridge or the tunnel?

Given the address to GM World Headquarters and having GPS it's hard to tell. Those who've done their homework will find the tunnel. Most will be coming down 401 to Huron Church Rd across the bridge, and (good luck) weaving their way back.

I did not, some of the cars skipped the check point so maybe he was one of them.

Here are a few photos, more - http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?s...5165691&type=1

Lots of great accelerations here!


This one is NOTHING but accelerations. Absolutely no walkarounds, just one roar after another.

NOTE: custom thumbnails aren't working on youtube right now, so don't let this lame thumbnail throw you off.




This one is very short, shows the SLR McLaren accelerating a few times:





This one is only 30 seconds, shows the Rally Fighter doing sweet burnouts:

No, I didn't! Do they have that there on occasions, or was it a one time thing?

Nice Carl! You caught the Ferrari doing the spinout in the parking lot, as well as the Audi & Lambo with the surfboards on top. I missed that. I also like the fish-eye view of the city. Nicely done!
