5 Reasons You Should Be Part of Gumball 3000

5 Reasons You Should Be Part of Gumball 3000

What started out as a British entrepreneur’s exclusive road trip adventures for famous friends has evolved into a celebrity motor rally like no other. Maximillion Cooper’s Gumball 3000 is a prestigious event that brings the world’s who’s who to celebrate the finest things in life, starting from the sleekest automobile to the sexiest models and all the way to the latest fashions. With the 2016 rally close by (April 30 to May 7), it’s about time that you booked your tickets to an event which Top Gear lovingly describes as “a tortuous process that gives you access to indulge endlessly within unreal experiences”.

If you need a little extra motivation, here are five reasons to get your heart revving and remind you why you shouldn’t miss the Gumball 3000 this year.

1. Cars, Car, and More CARS

Gumball 3000 is yet to disappoint car enthusiasts despite running for almost two decades. Expect to see some of the craziest, fastest, and most expensive cars from all over the world. Last year alone, the start line was a mesmerizing sight with cars such as McLaren F1 GTR, Batman’s Tumbler, Lamborghini LM002, a six-wheeled military vehicle, and a 1959 Ferrari TR revving to make their way from Stockholm to Las Vegas.

If your car doesn’t fit the ‘superfast and quirky’ bill, you’re welcome to ride in one of the participating vehicles including the likes of Rolls Royce and Ferrari.

Josh Cartu, one of rally’s main attraction, says, “A number of people re-excited for Gumball 3000 for the exclusive cars that are going to be there. Even I am very excited to see my competition!”

This year’s form contains an Additional Information section where you can mention your ideal co-driver, favorite care, ultimate driving song, and city. Expect something exciting as a result.

2. Exclusive Tour of Europe

Get ready to explore eight of the most beautiful cities of Europe. Your journey starts from Dublin on April 30 where some of the most expensive, impressive and rare cars wait to start their 3,000 mile journey the next day. Later on May 1st, the cars will cross the Irish Sea and arrive in the Scottish capital Edinburgh for the public there to idolize them in a static car show.

The next day, Gumball 3000 will roll into London and parade through the city center. Expect to be greeted by a crowd as May 2nd is a bank holiday and everyone would like to see the exclusive vehicles this rally brings to town. If you’re not used to the fuss, all you need to do is bear with it for one day as you’ll be driving to The Alps on May 3rd until you reach Cooper’s secret hideout for a private dinner and charity auction.

And there’s more. On May 4th, you’ll be zooming through Prague among public displays and festivities. The next day, you’ll be in the scenic Budapest where you and your family can indulge in a range of activities. Finally, your journey will come to an end on Friday May 6th at Bucharest. However, the fun will just start as you have two days of festivities ahead in the Romanian capital.

3. Wildest Finish Party

The Finish Party scheduled on May 7th will make the Gumball 3000 go out in a bang. As part of the exclusive Gumballers posse, you’ll receive full access to some of Bucharest’s hottest night spots. You’ll also be serenaded by some of the artists who drove the 3,000 mile along with you. Last year, The Alchemist, rapper Bun B, and Deadmau5 rocked the party despite Maximillion Cooper stressing them and other Gumballers throughout the rally, forcing them to beg for mercy then only to make plans for the next year.

4. High Fashion and Down-to-Earth Stars

A former model once represented by the Elite model agency and a fashion designer, the founder of Gumball 3000, has made the year’s highly-anticipated rally ‘THE’ place to satisfy your thirst for fashion. Expect fabulous shoots, shows and everything fashion from sponsors including Guess and Armin Strom. Further doubling the fun is a host of handpicked celebrities. This year, expect to rub shoulders with F1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton, Tony Hawk, David Hasselhoff, Tommy Lee, and EVE. Others on the guest list include over 50 people off the Forbes 500 list and several Middle Eastern royal families.

Also, there are going to be past winners including the likes of Josh Cartu, who will have the Australian actor, Sullivan Stapleton, as his co-pilot this year.

5. You

You yourself are one of the biggest reasons why you should be part of Gumball 3000. In addition to sharing the limelight with some of the best drivers and stars in the world, you get to unwind for a week by partying, attending concerts, and satisfying your love for cars. Yet since nothing is free in the world, expect to be pushed by Maximillion Cooper himself to be part of the action every time, ensuring that you have a week you’ll forever remember.

So, are you ready to be part of Gumball 3000 in 2016? The schedule is out, so make sure you make your presence felt.
