It's every year the same and every year it reminds me on the "Cannonball Run" movie I've watched several time when I was a child - the Gumball 3000 race has started.
So this is seventh annual 'Gumball 3000' Rally sets off from Waterloo Place (between Picadilly Circus and Pall Mall) in London on Saturday 14th to Monte Carlo via Germany, Czech Republik, Austria, Slovenia, Italy and France without any speed limitations (by race rules), car limitations or any other kind of limitations but within 6 days only!

This years stars include: Jackass and Dukes of Hazard film star Johnny Knoxville, Jamiroquai's Jay Kay, Supermodels Caprice and Jodie Kidd, Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill's legendary director Quentin Tarantino with film star Daryl Hannah, Bez from 'The Happy Mondays' and DC Shoes skateboard legend Rob Dyrdek all driving everything from Ferrari Enzo's, Pagani Zonda's, Lamborghini's, Porsche GT's, to old Aston Martin's, Rolls Royce's, Bio-Diesel Hybrid's and even the General Lee!

What does it makes a the::unwired article? Pretty easy - this year the drivers are equipped with T-Mobile SDAs and ALK's Co-Pilot navigation for Windows Mobile Smartphones!

And even better - you can track the Gumballer's through ALK's Gumball 3000 sub-page where you get real-time information about every team's position:

LOL... Can it be easier for the police to catch them up? If, yes if the police have GPRS/UMTS enabled Notebooks/Tablet PCs in theirs cars. ;-) I'm happy that these guys are not crossing Munich. I don't need to see them in my rear-mirror.

Cheers ~ Arne
