This year’s Gumball 3000 rally has certainly lived up to the event’s notorious reputation of millionaires getting reckless with million dollar machines. We recently saw one of the rally participants make a water crossing in his Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV but that pales in comparison to the lunacy of this Bugatti Veyron owner who let a Toyota Supra drift around his car with just a couple of feet separating them.
Sitting behind the wheel of the heavily modified Supra is 25-year old pro drifter Derek “Buttsy” Butler from Ireland. Thankfully nothing happened but nevertheless, we don’t recommend you try this at home.
Sadly, the rally is now over for 2011 but you can bet that the Gumball 3000 will be back kicking in 2012--we can’t wait.
