Cannonball 8000 2006 Video



  Clio172cup, Capri 3.9 V8
Hi All,

As some of you might be aware I recently attended this years cannonball 8000 rally to Budapest. I was supposed to do it in my V8 Capri but unfortunately due to a suspect head gasket on the day before I decided to use my clio cup instead.

Here is a compilation video of our journey.

Thanks for the replies. All credit for the video goes to Ollie & Nik @ www.turbo-nutters.co.uk for creating it from the footage we gave them.

All of it was great, the Hungaroring was the best point for me but a close 2nd was the police convoy from the race track to the Hotel in budapest. hitting speeds of over 100mph in places in the convoy keep up with Mr plod. The reception in Budapest was awesome I felt like a celebriity. ITV1 will be showing coverage of the cannonball rally 5th December 11.00pm so make a slot in your diary for that. I've already signed up for next year but should be doing it in something totally different.

Yep it sure was the Capri had a petrol leak so went back to get the clio at Lunch time.

I do remember another blue cup there and a trophy.

Cheers

I haven''t posted on Pistonheads.com but it may have been done by my co-driver or one of the cannonball rally drivers as it was posted on there website Cannnonball8000.com


the track is by 'Rob d' and 'Clubbed to Death' taken from the Matrix although it could be a remix of what I have.

How much did it all end up costing if you don't mind me asking?

We paid over £4000 entrance fee and around 500 in fuel, it would have been alot more in the capri. Plus all the bits you need for driving abroad, gps system fire extinguisher etc although these can be used again. Spending money and beer tokens are also required.

If I can a get a sponsor for next year to help pay the entrance fee then I will do it cancer research next year. I was given donations from a few websites and work mates to help me.

Well done many people dream of doing it but never do it well for not being one of those Great film and next year cancer research is a great cause to help...u could get alot of donations off here as cancer effects almost every family.
 
  850 T5. mmmm Turbo!
cool, just out of interest, what would you say your average speeds were on the motorways. i hear stories of these people going flat out in some seriously exactic cars but surely not all the time!
