50 Supercars Leave London for Cannonball 2000 Rally

Epic 2000-mile journey starts in London and hits Barcelona, Monte Carlo, Milan and Paris to raise money for children’s charity.
Over £5 million worth of supercars have set off from the London Hilton Park Lane for the inaugural Cannonball 2000 rally: a 2,000-mile odyssey across Europe to raise money for the Dreams Come True children's charity. Boxing champion Ricky Hatton started the race, waving a checkered flag alongside an obligatory posse of glamor girls. 50 supercars set off in grid formation, leaving London for the south coast where they will board a ferry bound for St Malo and then make their way to Barcelona.
