Gumball 3000

2004 – France, Spain, Morocco

Gumball 3000′s sixth edition brought it some 5000 km over six days, on an itinerary encompassing Paris, Marrakech and Cannes. This rally approaching the limits of the legal was launched in 1999 by Maximillion Cooper. Inspired by the film Cannonball Run, Gumball is more a state of mind than a race: even if the drivers make it a point of honour to come first at the checkpoints, there is no classification and no stopwatch. The registration fee is 12.000 Euros. At the wheel are billionaires, celebrities, pin-ups and eccentric teams, all seeking thrills from their favourite toy. Cops and robbers is their game of choice.
