No Alex Roy, the craziest odd ball car was an old Volvo that was stretched full of guys LOL.. the offroad buggy was pretty cool too. Tony Hawk was driving the A-team van but he skipped out on Toronto for some reason? I have heard they said they will "never" come through Canada again. I am not surprised.

I asked the promoters when they were planning the route why on earth would they come through Ontario. Quebec I understand, the province is nuts about cars. Here it's a big circle jerk of cops ticketing everything that isn't a Corolla or Camry doing 99km/h

There were over 50 units posted between Shannonville and TO. 50! Some radars were under 1km apart. Exit @ Whites had 6 units just sitting there wasting the time and gas you pay for. Some of the cops were taking pictures? Of my GT-R? Umm, l doubt he was a fanboi.

It was cool to see all the cars. but anything fun was out of the question and as a result mega lame.

Arrested for a parking lot burn-out? What a waste of everyones time, as if the guy will appear in court or pay a dime, they all have long money he will pay a lawyer to easily get out of it.

Gumball outside of the US and Canada is cool as many countries roll out the red carpet, shut down roads and get blessing from the president/king whatever.

FYI it is not just US and Canada that was bad.. Germany threatened to pull over each and every car if they drove into the country. So at the end of night 1 when the cars had been parked at 1am the crew loaded EVERY CAR on transports and had them transported 4hrs across Germany to the other side. The party that night was scheduled to go to 5am so the drivers had to be up for 8am and were then COACHED to their cars 4 hours away and continued on their tour.

-This was outlined in the Drivers Briefing
