  • A Gumball 3000 stalwart has cried off this year citing the drinking and the route. Speaking on his YouTube channel, the Swedish freestyle ski entrepreneur Jon Olsson - who normally takes part in an array of lary Audis, or his Rebellion R2K – says he has already visited many of the places on this year’s rally and has been on a health kick since last summer… meanwhile, the Gumball 3000 cars departed Dublin yesterday afternoon on the first leg of this year’s event, to Edinburgh. From there they call in at a further nine control points or overnight stops on their way across the Continent - via Luxembourg, Germany, Czech Republic and Hungary – before the finish in Bucharest on Friday 6 May marked, of course, with a huge party. Drivers are free to pick their own route between stops. Follow live tracking here, or see more at Gumball3000.com. Photo Jon-Olsson.com

  • 2048m Oberalppass east from Andermatt near Gotthard in south central Switzerland opened on schedule last Wednesday and the first drive films are already posted on YouTube. Meanwhile, 2188m Splugen Pass, above, which marks the border of the West and East Alps between Switzerland and Italy, opened on Saturday, just a couple of days later than expected. The next lot of high alpine passes start to open from Sunday 1 May. However, with fresh deep snow over the weekend on its recently cleared roads, doubts remain about Stelvio, normally open in early May.
