August 9th - 16th 2008
San Francisco (Start Line) - Los Angeles - San Diego - Las Vegas - Nanjing - NORTH KOREA - Nanjing - Shanghai - Xuzhou - Beijing (Finish Line)
The dates and route of the "10th Anniversary" Gumball 3000 Rally are officially announced!
The "10th Anniversary" Gumball will take place in August this year starting in San Francisco and finishing 8 days later in China at the Beijing Olympics. Dates of the rally are August 9th-16th.
Being the 10th anniversary this route is nothing short of spectacular, and ground breaking to say the least! Setting off from San Francisco, the route incorporates Los Angeles, San Diego and Las Vegas, with checkpoints each day and VIP parties each night. From Las Vegas all 120 vehicles (low-riders to supercars) will be flown on 3 of the worlds largest Antonov Cargo Planes to Nanjing, China; and all participants will get to experience an unprecedented 1 night in North Korea as part of a global 'friendship' initiative, getting to watch the Mass Games (their version of the Olympics) en route to rejoin their cars in Nanjing. From Nanjing the route heads north to Shanghai and then Xuzhou, before crossing the finish line in Beijing during the Olympic Games.
This is a real "once in a lifetime trip". Entry fee is £60 000 per car (2 people) and of course includes everything throughout the 8 days, incl. hotels, parties, flying the cars around etc... and tickets to the Olympics.
This one is certain to draw a crowd wherever it goes, and with the cars being displayed in each city, everyone will get to witness the amazing cars and stars first hand throughout the route. If you think you've got what it takes to join the rock stars, film stars and the 'jet set' to participate in this once in a lifetime adventure then contact the Gumball HQ for more information.
