2008 Gumball 3000 – 10th Anniversary World Tour
Pyongyang (North Korea)
Beijing (DURING Olympics)
August 8-16 2008
`From the USA to China, in 8 days! Setting off from San Francisco and crossing the finish line in Beijing at the Olympics – the `10th Anniversary’ Gumball is nothing short of spectacular!
With full support from the Chinese and US Governments, 120 cars will drive the 3000 mile route infront of thousands of onlookers, enjoying VIP parties, music concerts, race circuits and check points along the route. Upon reaching Las Vegas all cars and drivers will be airlifted to spend an unprecedented night in the undiscovered city of Pyongyang, North Korea’s capital, to watch the incredible `Mass Games’ before being reunited the following day with their vehicles in Shanghai. The route will then continue to Zhengzhou, incorporating a `Kung Fu’ display that would impress Bruce Lee, before crossing the finish line in Beijing’s Tiananmen Square!
Expect to see just about every super, luxury, American Muscle, vintage and futuristic vehicle participating, from Bugatti Veyrons to the electric Tesla; and with an A-list of rock stars, supermodels, sporting legends, eccentrics, billionaires and Hollywood’s finest, this is going to be a real once in a lifetime experience!’
Merry Christmas! Don’t forget to leave out some fine Cubans and a single malt scotch for Santa!
