If you watch the gumball films / that bull run copy that was on ftn recently - you'll notice the cars that generally arrive first aren't necisarily the quickest as the others are getting pulled over all the time.

a 2 cv finished on time on last years gumball.

So I don't see what's stopping people joining the convoy (apart from no hotels and ferry crossing being unplanned), but would be entertaining all the same.

The main point of the convoys is the whole comradery between the entrants, the parties in the hotels, etc.
Just tagging along would be pretty boring.

Why's everyone so surprised about Jodie being in the Gumball again?

She was a bit sharp around Top Gear's test track. If she wasn't such a skinny bint, I would.


Ok, I would anyway.
