Gumball3000 Rally

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

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.

I was surprised he didn't have his R8


Interesting plate

I don't think that is a soda stream in the Lexus

Built for performance?

SLR I love the push button start on these, it is on the gear shift, under a cover.

Gumball 3000 is also having a silent auction for charity. 

One of the things you can bid on are Lewis Hamilton's driving gloves. 

Lewis will be arranging in California to drive the last let of the trip today from Las Angeles to Las Vegas. 


The winning bidder of Lewis' gloves will also receive 2 VIP tickets to a F1 race of choice. 

@epic You should bid on those. :D
