    I know is Thursday, but Madrid is too big, unless we know where and at what time we could see something is going to be rather difficult to find them.

    I did a search, all I know is that they will pass tomorrow but the intenerary and times were kept secret... obviously!!! But I was hoping somebody would had heared something from a participant.

    I did see a couple of 348s together with foreign plates today, but I doubt they were from the Gumball.

    Oh well!!!

    Maybe some participants did some test laps in Madrid, just for practice and to find out which tires they should use :D

    Julio,

    THANKS....excellent photos! You know, I've just realised that I have NEVER seen an Enzo in the flesh! Only pictures! I will have to make a plan to see one soon....

    Cheers, MARK

    Being born at the beginning of the 1960's I really LOVE the Jaguar e-Type and feel sorry for the car in the photo. That car deserves to be treated with more respect!! It will be destroyed on this so-called "rally"....sad.

    Cheers, MARK
