Gumball 3000 Comes To Paris

It’s not quite the Cannonball Run but the Gumball Rally 3000 is still an exciting race, through exotic locales, that results in a good show for fans. The ‘race’ (such as it is) is 3,000 miles long and cruises through multiple countries, It criss-crosses public roads so speeding is not acceptable (nor is it suggested if you want to keep on driving.)

The race began in 1999 and was founded by Maxmillion Cooper as way to gather together 100 or so of the worlds most exotic super cars. It is not so much an actual road race as an adventure race–a road trip for the rich and famous as it were. But whatever you call it, it’s good clean fun for super car drivers and their fans and anyone who seeks the thrills of a good old fashioned road rally.
