    The F1 car – named Betsafe BGF1 and driven by an anonymous driver - deafened the streets of Manchester as it roared past local residents, as the driver waved to other cars on the road and even politely stopping to let a hoard of school children cross the road. The racing car also found time to take a pit stop at a local drive-through restaurant, much to the bemusement of the fast food workers. Gumball fans will be excited to know that the Team Betsafe F1 car will be in Dublin at the start of the rally and also at select UK locations over the course of the event. Technical specs and more information about the car are also available now on Betsafe.com (http://go.betsafe.com/gumball3000). Team Betsafe built this unique F1 car in collaboration with top Formula 1 experts from Only The Fast and its special camo wrapping was designed by one of the rising stars of automotive photography Oskar Bakke.
