The seventh rally originated at Trafalgar Square on May 14, 2005, and progressed 3000 miles from London to Brussels, Belgium, Prague, Czech Republic, Vienna, Austria, Budapest, Hungary, an then headed north to Dubrovnik, Croatia. The cars then were transported by a ferry from Dubrovnik to Bari, Italy followed by a transit of the Targa Florio circuit in Sicily, before heading north to Rome and Florence. The finish line was in Monaco’s Casino Square prior to the F1 Grand Prix. Participants included Actress & green activist Daryl Hannah, Formula One driver Jensen Button, professional snowboarder Tina Basich, Managing Director of Morgan Motor Company Charles Morgan, musician Salt, Model and Entrepreneur Caprice Bourret and skateboard professional and TV personality Rob Dyrdek driving vehicles ranging from the Dukes of Hazzard General Lee to Ferrari Enzos and Mercedes-Benz SLRs. The Spirit Trophy was awarded to Sue Bellarby and Kathy Huddart, whose Caterham 7 broke down just shy of the finish line. The two were transported to the finish line by Gumball legend Alex Roy in his “Guardia Civil” Team Polizei BMW M5 who finished second dressed as a Spanish police officer. The year’s unofficial winners were Greg and “Kalbas” in a 2004 Mercedes CLK-DTM, who edged out a week-old Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren because a tire was destroyed just short of the finish line. YouTube sensation and rally car driver Ken Block also attended with his DC Shoes associates in three modified 2004 Subaru WRX STi’s sponsored by DC Shoes.
