It's a Race not a Rally
The Gumball 3000 was cancelled .
The 2007 route was scheduled to travel from London to Istanbul, via
Amsterdam, Munich, Venice, Dubrovnik, and Athens. Over 100 contestants were scheduled to drive through 16 countries in 8 days. The entrance fee for the 2007 rally was GB?28,000 (US$55,060) for first-time drivers. 
Upon arrival in Holland, On April 29, the Dutch police awaited the
participants with 14 police cars and 7 unmarked cars. Seven pilots including
rapper Xzibit lost their driver's licence for speeding with over 50 km/h
more than allowed and two cars were confiscated. The Dutch government has forbidden streetraces by law, although rallies that are performed within the law (i.e. participating in a rally without a competitive element) are not
forbidden. The next day, the German police stopped about 70 cars for
speeding violations; they were escorted off to the airport. A police
spokesman told the media that the information about the racing route had
been available on the official Gumball 3000 website. Following the
complications with the German police, the Gumball drivers were flown to
Istanbul, but the Antonov planes set to bring their cars was diverted to
Athens. The drivers were then flown to Athens the next day, but four
teams (Team Polizei, Team Turkish Taxi, Team Aytac, and Team 15) chose to drive the distance in other vehicles. 
On May 2, a convoy of four Gumball 3000 vehicles was involved in a traffic
accident near the town of Struga, Republic of Macedonia. The Techart Porsche 911 Turbo of Nick Morley and Matthew McConville hit an oncoming car, at a reported speed of more than 200 km/h, after which, according to media reports, they tried to escape the country via the nearby border post.
However, they were stopped and arrested by the police, and will be held in
custody until their trial has begun.  The casualties reported in the
accident were the 67-year old driver of the other vehicle (a Volkswagen
Golf), who died on his way to the hospital; and his wife, who was seriously
injured and later passed away in hospital on Friday 4th May.
I would think that trial, conviction and jail time in Macedonia would not be like a weekend at the Four Seasons or what Paris Hilton is about to be traumatically subjected to.
RUle Number One for international riding - maintain a low profile and don't kill 67 year olds and their wives while speeding
