That is awesome. Enjoy! It is so beautiful there, and the photography options there will be incredible. Have fun!

I believe itís 50,000 pounds for 2019...so whatever that is in US dollars these days. I canít believe anyone would pay money to drive a car in rally and all they get is a hotel room at each stop.

Have fun and make sure to post a thorough report.
My buddy goes and the non-drinkers get a lot of morning driving.

There are some ZR1's registered in Germany. You can get a registration with an individual approval by the TUEV (The organisation who approves cars or not to be street legal) but that will not apply to you since you will be there with an US registration.

You have mail.


This was my C7R Edition in the UK in 2017 at a car show



This was my car at Le Mans in 2017 all you need to add to the car is the USA Sticker to identify that the car is from the USA.

Thanks, the car is already on the way actually. Shipped in a 40ft container with another Gumball car out of Houston. Didnít want to risk shipping with a Roll On/Roll Off option as Iíve heard tons of horror stories about the cars being mishandled by port workers... Should arrive in London May 15 then consolidated with a bunch of Gumball cars for enclosed truck transport to Greece from there. Should see the car June 6 in Mykonos

You barely see it in this video (4min10sec in). and it's not a close up.


Geez, a f-ing new Supra got more video time than the ZR1.

OE poster, wicked adventure, wicked ride to do it in. Drive safe and say hi to my inlaws in Thessaloniki!!!! OPA!!!!!!

I suffered through the video, one of the worst one I ever saw. The idiot kept apologizing for the wind, he should work on his camera skills. Very irritating to say the least. I bet HTXSkydiver will provide much better coverage than that clown.

Iím sure itís not all like this, because if it is it will feel like 300,000 miles not 3,000...
