Hi, Sadly most Volvo fans are probably not aware but I wrote a book about myself and former Champion Jockey doing the Gumball 3000 rally in a Volvo V70R with many excellent stories.

net Cheers Clement Our Gumball Rally by Clement Wilson & Richard Dunwoody 3,000 miles, 3 countries, 65 Ferraris, only 1 Volvo Published on May 5th 2005 by Virgin Books. wilson, Jan 17, 2006. Hi, Sadly most Volvo fans are probably not aware but I wrote a book about myself and former Champion Jockey doing the Gumball 3000 rally in a Volvo V70R with many excellent stories of us blowing away various Italian exotica who were convinced we had cheated by beating them all on the overnight leg.

Inspired by Cannonball Run, the Gumball rallies have become synonymous with thrills and spills. Alternating between the United States and Europe, with different routes each year, they attract anyone mad enough to risk their car in a hair-raising 3,000-mile race. In May 2004, journalist Clement Wilson and ex-champion jockey Richard Dunwoody joined forces to take a trusty Volvo estate car along the route in an attempt to outgun the Ferraris, Lamborghinis, and Porsches of their fellow racers. Fueled by Richard's competitive instincts to be the first across the finishing line and the last man standing at the bar, they dashed down the auto route, through Spain and into the desert of Morocco, mixing pain and pleasure as crashes and parties took them from one adventure to another. In this hilarious account they explain why rallying has become so enticing; what it's like to hobnob with the King of Morocco, dance with celebrities in Marrakech, and get arrested in Spain; and why burning rubber has never smelled so good!

and a damned good book. Books about high speed adventures in a Volvo are rare for obvious reasons. This one is just a fun read. Well written and well paced, the only thing it lacks is a British-to-American glossary to clarify a few coloquialisms. Worth the time to read.

I LOVE the road rally world, so it was a no-brainer for me to buy this book used. It is ~200 pages, and the first 50 or so are just talking about how the two teammates met and who they were. When the author gets into the "meat of the hamburger", it it hit-or-miss with how the book is. There are portions that are extremely entertaining, where I see an event through another pair of eyes, and heard a few stories I had not known about before. But there are several times where the author diverges into tangents about completely unimportant subjects, and some of them last multiple pages. I was either very attentive to the book, or lost interest, depending on the content. I would recommend this book only for a quick read for a true gumball junkie, and would only recommend picking it up used.

I picked up this book because I am a big fan of cars and had my interest in the Gumball piqued by an article in Vanity Fair magazine.

A very quick an enjoyable read that tells the tail of a journalist and retired jockey's escapades (both on the road and in the pub) during the amazing Paris to Marakech to Cannes Gumball 2004.

However, the book has a lot of British humor and the author is a bit self-absorbed (what kind of journalist would spend so much time writing about himself and his Irish buddies when there are so many other more interesting people around?).

Clement Wilson's wit and the intoxicating mix of fast cars and fast living still make this a worthwhile read. A cannonball run for the 21st century.
