Team Tankboy Takes Third Place: CannonBall Run 2011

It was gruelling hot as 200 cars headed north for the 2011 CannonBall Run. Among the Ferrari's, GT40's, Aston Martin's and other exotic cars was Team Tankboy's, ex-US Army Humvee.

There were some great themed teams, Magnum PI, Priscilla Queen of the Dessert with a giant shoe atop a bus, a Back to the Future DeLorean and even Shrek to name but a few.

Everyone was having fun, nice cars, plenty of hot babes, miles of winding countryside roads and great weather. What more could one ask for? OK, there could have been a wet T-Shirt competition but then I doubt our focus would have stayed on the road.

Out of 200 entrants, a total of fifteen speeding tickets got handed out and one car caught fire and burnt to a crisp. Not bad for a day of fuel induced excitement.

Team Tankboy consisted of Charles “Tankboy” Knight and Nick “Nuke” Scott from the reality series “Tankboy TV”, along with actor/comedian Aaron Beard.

“It was our first time competing in the event, so we weren't 100% sure what we were up against. We didn't have a lot of time to prepare, compared to seasoned contestants, but we had a plan, and we stuck to it.” said Tankboy. “And making third place was awesome!”

“If you think we were crazy on the rally, you should see us in our TV show.” said Nuke. “And that cute girl in the Impala, she can facebook me anytime”.

The CannonBall Run is a street legal car rally, competing over one day with heaps of wacky missions, entertainment and just plain craziness along the way.

The event is limited to 250 cars and is run by Auckland Motorsport. http://www.aucklandmotorsport.co.nz
