THE 2013 GUMBALL 3000 15th RALLY ANNOUNCEMENT!!!!
Sooooo….the Gumball 3000 '15th Anniversary' route is one that we've never done before, spanning Scandinavia, Eastern and Western Europe! Starting in Copenhagen, Denmark,the 3000 mile route incorporates Stockholm, Helsinki, St. Petersburg, Riga, Warsaw, and Vienna, before crossing the finish line in Monte Carlo, in time to watch the Monaco F1 race! In fact, the Gumball will cross the Monaco finish line on Friday 24th May and included in your entry fee is full F1 race weekend hospitality, so you can watch the Grand Prix together, staying in Monaco until the Monday. The rally dates are Saturday 18th May through to Monday 27th May 2013 inclusive.
This route has the style and sophistication of Scandinavia, an Eastern European edge of romance and adventure, and ends with the jet-set glamour of Monte Carlo! I hope you all agree that it's an amazing route. My "Red Square" herrings that I talked about in LA were to gauge your reaction to heading to Russia…and I think you won't be disappointed by St. Petersburg, it's one of the most beautiful cities in the world!
The entry fee for 2013 will be set at £30,000, to reflect the enhanced level of hospitality(plus better food!) and activities we have in store. This will also include the 3 day weekend in Monaco – affording you all with more opportunity to socialise and soak up the Formula One carnival atmosphere that descends upon the principality over Race Weekend!
