The Gumball 3000 pit stop at Manchester (video) /Gumpert Apollo crash.

Bank Holiday Monday saw the beginning of the Gumball rally as the cars set off from Edinburgh to London going via Manchester.
So i decided to head down to the pit stop at the Manchester City Etihad stadium, the weather was horrendous but i wasn’t going to let that stop me and when i got there it obviously hadn’t put off a lot of people as there were hundreds of people there already at 10.30 am.
The cars were due to arrive at 11 am but with the weather being so bad and it being a bank holiday they were bound to be late.
It wasn’t such a bad thing though as local supercars turned up to keep the crowds entertained.
The Nissan GTR, Bentley and Maserati near the gates certainly made enough noise to keep everybody awake during the wait and they all sounded amazing!!
The Gumball cars started arriving at around 12.30 and the reception they got was insane, by this time the crowds were huge and it was almost impossible to get close but it created a great atmosphere.
One of the first cars to arrive was youtuber Schmee150 in the ABT Audi RS6 which certainly got the crowd hyped up.
I was really looking forward to seeing the Gumpert Apollo in the flesh but unfortunately it never made it to Manchester due to a crash, luckily it wasn’t too serious and everybody was ok but still a quite a┬ásad sight.


I was concentrating so much on trying to get through the crowds and get footage that i actually forgot to get any pictures but here’s my video from the day.
