Gumball 3000 2012: Fake Gumballer Rejected

The Gumball Rally is basically the best way of having fun in a car and this is why every car enthusiast in the world would love to take part in it. Of course, this is not possible, but the issue doesn't stop certain people for trying and we know have an example for you.
The adjacent clip, which comes from Youtube user Shmee150, shows us a Ferrari 360 Spider owner who had decided to disguise his ride as a Gumball one and attempted to squeeze between the actual Gumballers at the start of the rally in New York.

However, he was spotted by both race officials and fans, as the decals on the car weren't exactly identical to the official Gumball 3000 2012 ones. Thus, the vehicles was pushed out of Times Square, but this again didn't stop the driver, as he reportedly followed the rally to Canada subsequently.

The 2012 Gumball Rally is taking participants on the following route: New York City (start, May 25th); Toronto, Canada (May 25th); Indianapolis (May 26th-27th); Kansas City (May 28th); Santa Fe (May 29th); Las Vegas (May 30th); Los Angeles (finish, May 31st).
