Reports from the Gumball 3000 have the drivers following the proclamation by Herr Alex Roy that air travel is for squares. Instead of waiting for their cars to come by airplane from Athens in Istanbul, Herr Roy, Jarod DeAnda, and Andrew 'Fly' Tipping are driving from Istanbul to Athens in a rented VW Sharan van. Our man Davey is along for the ride, and phoned in from the 700-mile trip to say once the drivers reach Athens they will reunite with their actual rides and press on to Albania. Sharan pictured not representative of actual van in use.
