The trial of Gumball 3000 pilots Nick Morley and Matthew McConville regarding the deaths of two Macedonians during the Athens-to-Tirana stage of the rally begins Friday. If convicted, they face at least four years in a Macedon hoosegow. We'd be fascinated to see what the difference in penalty would have been if the pair hadn't twice tried to flee the country.

DISCUSSION

Seems now this whole rally bit has run its course. The whole concept has become distorted from the original idea and quite boring too. No disrespect for the seriousness of this incident intended. Another great thing ruined by popularity and money.
