A must for petrol-heads everywhere, Gumball 3000 brought some traffic to Regent Street the public actually wanted to see.
Managing sponsor activations and overseeing a stage install was just the half of it - lining the route with a kilometre of heavy-duty barrier to keep crowds safe took some serious graft on the day.
Planning the fence-line route and crossing point locations to ensure crowds flow was maximised during the show was a key job for Wilde Ones.

A memorable date in the calendar for the Regent Street Association, this event has hosted stars from medal winning Olympians and Paralympians, to Darcy Bussell and That That.
With huge restrictions of stage location and high-pressure to meet the national news deadline - the show must run like a well oiled machine.
To make this happen we have built plans and teams robust enough to react to any situation, often worked through twilight hours to create a calm environment for the switch on moment.
Wilde Ones have succcesfully delivered this event on time and on budget in the years invited to work on this extraordinary event.
It's rare that both Regent Street and Oxford Street close for a public event but - for one day in December - the streets were clear for a traffic-free shopping day in London.
Wilde Ones managed all production, from funfair rides and iconic London buses to X Factor stars and a pyrotechnics finale.
As with all our events, the close communication and attention to detail meant the VIP Days brought Christmas cheer to the public with minimal disruption to central London.

Wilde Ones even delight in the small jobs, none more so that the simple unveiling of a plaque in Heddon Street.
The event was to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the genre-defining masterpiece The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars by rock-legend David Bowie, at its cover photoshoot location.
A simple affair, Bowie chose to stay away from the prying eyes of the press, but his name brought much coverage and a few stars to boot.
