2012 Gumball 3000 Photos



Right now the 2012 Gumball 3000 cars are lining up in New York Times Square to begin the first leg of their run to Toronto! The entrance fee is $40,000 USD per car and limited to 120 pre-screened cars (93 registered this year) to ensure they are “interesting” teams :) They arrive in Toronto sometime tonight and I will be there to take some photos! Don’t forget to checkout the cars from the 2011 Gumball 3000 and 2010 GUMBALL 3000 when they were last in Toronto! There is even a techno colored Team Toronto (Team #12) driving a Mercedes Benz SLS AMG!

Check back during the entire week of the GUMBALL 3000 for full coverage!

With the 2010 GUMBALL 3000 coming to the end of it’s journey (London, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Montreal, Toronto, New York), the cars are due to arrive in Yorkville, Toronto this evening around 6pm and will be staying at the Hyatt. I will be on location to check out their 2nd last stop of the tour and snap some pics. Stay tuned for pictures coming to a MadWhips.com near you from Josh McRae who partied with the Gumballers last night in Quebec at Chez DegoBar and it looks just as crazy as I remember when I was last there 10 years ago :)

Final Update: 2007 Gumball 3000 Cancelled

It took more than 24 hours, a botched cover up and massive negative worldwide publicity for Maximillion Cooper to finally announce the cancellation of this years Gumball 3000 rally.

The delayed reaction, press release and ultimate cancellation of the Gumball 3000 has caused a lot of disbelief and anger among the victims families, locals, fans and drivers. This has resulted in a quick exit of all sponsors and created an anti-Gumball campaign.

Update: 2007 Gumball 3000 FATALITY COVER UP

aa-gumball-notice-crash.jpg

The 911 Porsche that crashed into the Volkswagen killing the driver and putting the passenger in critical condition was apparently the car of Nick Morley and Matthew McConville. As you can see by the banner I have included in this post, The Official Gumball 3000 website has shut down the forum and stopped answering all questions.

CRASH: First 2007 Gumball 3000 FATALITY

gumballcrash2.jpg

It is with much sadness that I have to report that the 2007 Gumball 3000 has encountered its first fatality. A white Porsche crashed in Macedonia, near the city of Struga close to the Albanian border. Some locals were injured in the crash. The driver of the Red Volkswagen in the picture died on the way to the hospital and his wife is in intensive care, in critical condition suffering from broken ribs and fluid in her lungs.

This is extremely unfortunate for the Gumball 3000 as well as other ‘rallies’ of this type around the world. This accident will definitely serve as a precedent and example for putting more limitations and possibly shutting down or banning these annual events in some if not all countries.
