We’re doing something unique this week… We’re going to be embedded with a 2-car team that are doing the 2022 Gumball3000 that starts in Toronto. They’re coming in from Germany and we’re picking them up at the airport, getting the car + truck ready and prepped for the rally (it’s NOT a race). We’ll see the car and truck at the same time they see them for the first time…
