Crazy hectic schedule intense schedule so tricky finding time for blog but quick update! Few photos upload and videos to follow…




11 cars haven’t made it so far…Honda Civic blows engine spectacularly at full speed down French toll road, RX7 blows Turbo, MR2 blows engine, Skyline snaps prop shaft…6 of the Modball boys done for speeding...TVR and Team Lewis still going (at the moment)!




Team Lewis finally made it to the launch party to meet the Modball teams and Dirty Sanchez Boys antics…




Not too sketchy in the morning…headed down to Kent and Lewis Hamilton’s home race track to check out all the crazy teams and cars. Loads of money spent modifying some amazing cars. With the exception of a couple of TVR dodgy moments with the electrics all sorted and off to Dover…




Expecting to cross to Calais to head to Luxembourg but Modball organisers surprises us with a change and now we’re sitting on the ferry on the way to Paris via Dunkirk?! VIP Paris Club tonight…




Finally made it to Paris, had to stop to sort out a problem with the fuel replay and further electric faults…in the morning Modball briefing and we’re off to Lyon! TVR cruising down the French toll roads but then SatNav lets us down in Lyon and spend a couple of hours driving round random Lyon streets and neighbourhoods and miss the Playbook girls car washing in their Bikinis, gutted.




Absolutely knackered but head out at night to exclusive party bar boat in Lyon. One half of Team Lewis gets into the atmosphere and ends up going to a random discotechque with some French girls and one of the Irish boys from Modball…walks home along river during sunrise and gets home at 7:30am after detour through fields, woods and scrambles over toll roads, oops.




Don’t bother going to bed and head straight off in the car to Geneva! Some of the other Modball teams went a bit crazy last night and Police involved, we find out what happened when we get to the Swiss Tuning Show in Geneva.




Amazing drive through the mountains and Mt.Blanc to Milan, now about to set off over the Alps over the Stelvio pass from Milan to Saltzburg and then party/casino night in Austria tonight.
