Crazy Kiwi Stuff

Following from the Kiwi Bentley plumber, and the Gumball 3000 Rolls Royce crash comes New Zealand's own Devils Run.

Yep its a Cannonball Run down New Zealand, organised by the veteran Gumballer Max Fletcher who even got married in Las Vegas in the Gumball 3000 2006.

He Gumballed in a 1999 Bentley Arnage twin turbo across Europe, then changed cars to the Lamborgini LM002 4x4 Hummer eater from the 80's in Asia, then cruised the USA leg in Hugh Hefners Mercedes Pullman. Crazy. He represents Team Satan and check out his Bentley!

The Devils Run is a three day five star 'rally' cough race cough down New Zealand.
