Magne and his driving partner Einar Skjerven – together known as Skjerven Racing // Team 43 – participated in the Gumball 3000 road rally, and won the ‘Gumball Ambassadors’ prize at the conclusion of the race.

They started the race in a Ferrari, but unfortunately their gear box blew on the second day in Helsinki. Some attempts were made to repair the Ferrari, but in the end they had to abandon it and find a replacement – a Lada 1300 S (the sport model), which they bought in Warsaw for 700 euros.

The entire journey was documented by Magne and Einar on their Tumblr blog. Besides the Tumblr page, there are photos on Instagram and Flickr.
