gumball 3000 Official Thread

---I'm new here so if i'm posting something in the wrong spot or doing something incorrectly please tell me. Also how do I create a sticky post?---

Okay, you guys must have heard about the Gumball Rally that occurs every year. If not, then I guess this will be news to you. But I am willing to bet that none of you have ever seen these guys (celebrities, playboy playmates, pornstars...u know the usual) in real life risking their life driving at INTENSE speeds on Public Roads, right next to some dumb broad with a 'Baby On Board' sign in her window talking on her Cell Phone, and being chased by the cops (pigs, cozzers...u choose your weapon of choice) in helicopters and so forth.

Well in EXACTLY 1 months time, starting in the UK and ending...get this...in the US, is going to be one of the BIGGEST RALLYS EVER MADE (Rally World anyone?!?) consisting of just 3 (JUST THREE!) MISSIONS and will last exactly 8 DAYS, and on top of it all they are gonna make a movie out of the entire thing. Also, I guess they are using the tag line 'Around the World in 8 Days' (sounds about right travelling at those speeds).

It will start in the UK as Mission 1 and make its way to the East Asian Coast line where they reach Mission 2 and will (obviously) take a ferry to the West Coast of the US for their final Mission 3 objective.

I guess they only have 5 spots left to get in on this thing, and its going to be expensive as hell just trying to keep up, let alone enter! Kinda sucks cause I wanted in (if it was the usual rally)!!

So that is why I created this Room. Since this Gumball Rally is going 'Around the World in 8 Days' and wont start for exactly a Month (starting tomorrow), I figured why not post some sighting pics of what we see since we're all over the world. So dust off your digital cameras and recorders and get some playmates in Ferraris racing pornstars in lambos and flashing their jubblies. If not, just get em when they have to stop for gas (Prediction: GAS SHORTAGE & GAS PRICES THIS SUMMER ARE GOING THROUGH THE ROOF ).

Lets start posting and having some fun!

ps - the first set of gumball (nice looking) tits or gumball street race video (preferably something unusual) posted gets a beer! (u got a month to get ready!!)

---and please dont argue in here. im lookin for some street racing, titties and beer...and maybe a cop chase or two ---

I pretty sure it does, I don't know about anymore. But it could also stand for that movie that describes this particular gumball rally 'death race 3000'

Gumball has turned into an over-rated event where nobody drives fast and everybody simply poses. There was a pink Hummer for gods sake!

@Spi-ti-tout - Nice one

What I had read is that they are getting planes to get from europe to asia and then to the states (not a ferry nor they are driving from london to asia) . I think they got those huge russian planes to do so (antovs?).

About posers, well yes, a stretched hummer simply isn't made for hardcore racing. But people do stretch the legs of their rather nice sportscars and sometimes their roofs. Just watch the torquestein crash video or the Escort Cossie crash video.

It's a totally irresponsible practice, but it's their money and their choice, not to mention an excellent source for videos of sportscars doing what they where built to do (no, not crashing ).

I'd join up in a gumball if it was the regular type, none of that 'see you on the other side of the world' hype. But like the furious said, if we had the money...why not?

i was a bit skeptical at first before i put up this room thinkin i was the only one into driving fast and takin chances on this earth (not always on winding public roads)...thank GOD im not alone!!

oh yeah, theres a few other versions of Gumball out there...I'm pretty sure theres this other one called 'Player's Run'.

I hear Players Run is just insane with cops and car troubles. I got a vid of these 3 guys taking their brand new mercedes, 911 and bimmer to the side of an overpass where its pretty much dirt, grass, and rocks just to avoid the cops up ahead who was giving everyone else tickets-talk about off road!

but i guess entering into something like that is all about the rush, wired parties and experience within it with everyone else, not about checkpoints and playing by the rules (my kind of competition)
