Gumball 3000 arrives to Bratislava

The first contestants of the Gumball 3000 car rally started to appear in Bratislava half an hour before midnight on May 3. Fans had been waiting for them in front of the Carlton Hotel since the afternoon.

The rally started on April 28 in London. Two British contestants were arrested by Macedonian police and accused of causing a car crash that killed a driver and wounded his wife, and fleeing from the accident site.

After the arrival to Bratislava, the race organisers decided to cancel the rest of the rally due to the accident in Macedonia.
