Modball Rally Start-line 2012
Well then, it’s been a while since I covered an event, been struggling to find time to do anything blog related but made an effort, got up early and went down to London town. Weather was a bit dull and I was was tired, very tired, London is obviously getting geared up for the Olympics and the flags added nicely to the occasion.
All cars were parked up nicely, it was a bit cramped on Rupert St (Picadilly), not great for photos but created a good atmosphere.
As usual a great mix of cars with everything from everyday runners, like Audi TTs, Astra VXR and BMWs, although they are M3s;
To some nice Jap metal, like this R33 GTR, 350Z and Civic;
A few Classics thrown in for good measure…good old capri in standard spec, which is refreshing.
A bit of American muscle;
An Exotic or 2, Repsol livery looked ace on the R8.
A few unusual suspects, especially the 309 GTi, haven’t seen one of those in a while.
And last but not least loads of VAG…
The cars alone are no good, you’ve got to have a few characters and crazy people in the mix, there were one or two knocking about…
I think this guy was just passing through but he had boss hair.
Some of the cars had some nice touches and details as well.
A few babes about but never enough, missed some of them actually I was a bit short on time and it took me a while to wake up, my bad.
A decent crowd had gathered by the time kick off came, which was good, the rain held off as everyone watched the cars depart, unfortunately no crazy burnouts this year as the Police were loitering, spoil sports.
So another Modball Rally is underway, I look forward to seeing the footage and photos from this year, they’re all probably having a blast. I’m a bit jealous really, oh well maybe next year.
