Gumball Rally

by | Jun 13, 2014

On Sunday Prestwick Airport temporarily became a racetrack, as it played host to 65 supercars taking part in the Scottish leg of the world famous Gumball Rally. The race is inspired by the 1976 film of the same name in which a group of wealthy motor enthusiasts raced across America. This year’s race saw participants travel over 3000 miles from South Beach in Miami to the party island of Ibiza, via Atlanta, New York, Edinburgh, London, Paris, Barcelona… and Prestwick. 2014’s Gumballers included Baywatch and Knightrider star David Hasselhoff, Deadmau5 and Tinie Tempah; whilst the cars ranged from a Bugatti Veyron to a Rolls-Royce.

Thousands of Scottish fans lined the tarmac to catch a glimpse of the cars as they drove by. However, my son and I were afforded the privilege of viewing some of the world’s most impressive supercars before they reached the waiting crowds at the terminal from our VIP vantage point at the Ayrshire Log Cabins & Hot Tubs showroom. It was a truly spectacular day and to see such an impressive array of super cars at close quarters was an experience that I will never forget.

Ayrshire Log Cabins & Hot Tubs is a family run business which sells and installs a wide range of gazebos, hot tubs, log cabins and spas at prices to suit all budgets. Since its foundation in 2007, the company has gone from strength to strength, and has recently teamed up with one of Europe’s largest log cabin manufacturers and Caldera Spas to offer a vast range of high quality products at unbeatable prices.
