It all started years ago with Brock Yates and a bunch of buddies racing across the country for bragging rights. Now it has turned into a worldwide corporate event driving fast in the under the guise of "charity". We were able to go to the pre party where the cars were gathering for the launch of the U.S. leg here in Reno. Here is the site with all the information Gumball3000. Getting the cars and racers over from Europe was taking more time than anticipated so there were only about 20 cars ready to go (the rest would hit the first leg to SF later. We did see Jon Olssen, Tommy Lee and Dolph Lundgren along with 4 McLarens, a MB SLR Cab with an awful wrap, Bentley (yawn in this bunch), Rolls Royce, G-Wagen, some Hellcat Challengers and the best of the bunch Porsche 918 Spyder.

Since this is a ski forum Jon Olssen, he did notice my Head shirt.
SLR back. This had the most hideous wrap on it. the car is silver.
Quite the helmet cam
What Jon was driving
I was surprised he didn't have his R8
I don't think that is a soda stream in the Lexus
Built for performance?
GTR with a bike rack
SLR I love the push button start on these, it is on the gear shift, under a cover.
