Day 7 of the rally had us up and heading down to W43rd St and Broadway. The cars were all starting to warm up north in Toronto for the final leg down to Time Square to cross the finish line and continue on for the final celebrations of the event.
The event started 6 days ago in London, they then headed to Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Stockholm, over the seas to Boston, Quebec City and then Toronto. Today they all wanted to hit that final sprint. the Gumballer’s were keener than ever.
On the subway I was constantly checking blogs, news sites and other sources to make sure nothing had changed over night. All on track for a strong finish so all was looking great.
By 9am we got to Time Square. upon exiting out of the subway I noticed lots of NYPD officers had blocked off a large part of the new pedestrian strip that opens up a large walkway between stores and the Red Steps. This did not look good.
