Anyone heard of Gumball 3000?( http://www.gumball3000.com/ ). It is an annual 3000 mile (5000 km) international rally which takes place on public roads, which travels around the world. This year is a "coast to coast" from LA to Miami.
Well, the answer is apparently "yes" even for a couple of "slicks" from Eastern Europe. Long live their way of life and the hard and honest work that permitted them to attend this event.
