About The Gumball 3000

The Gumball 3000 Rally has been a platform for supercar owners to explore the potential of their cars, in terms of both design and performance. Over a distance of roughly 4,850km (3,000 miles), supercars get to stretch their legs and revel in the kind of firepower they command.

Drive by day, party by night- that’s how Gumball 3000 functions. All sorts of cars, right from factory-fresh performance machines to heavily tuned older cars, can be seen doing the Gumball run. The spectacle is impressive to behold, for you never know what sort of car you will run into at the rally. A McLaren-Mercedes? A Sunbeam? A couple of powerful SUVs? You name it, and it is probably a part of Gumball 3000.

Kicking off with a two-day celebration in Mykonos Island, Greece, the rally will conclude with a weekend-long party in Ibiza, Spain.
