Saturday sees the start of Gumball 3000, an epic 3000-mile, eight-day road rally from San Francisco to the Beijing Olympics. 120 amazing cars will make the trek driven by film stars, musicians, sports stars, the cast of Jackass, and most importantly of all… David Hasselhoff will be driving K.I.T.T.!
From San Francisco, the route incorporates overnight stops in Los Angeles, San Diego and Las Vegas, with VIP parties each night. Upon reaching Las Vegas, all participants will be flown directly to Pyongyang, North Korea, to spend the night watching the incredible ‘Mass Games’ (their spectacular annual display of arts and sport) as part of a global “friendship” initiative.
Following the Mass Games and the “first ever” western music performance in Pyongyang promoting peace and friendship, all participants will be flown on to Hangzhou, China to be reunited with their vehicles. From there the Rally then heads north to Shanghai and Xuzhou, before crossing the finish line in Beijing’s Tiananmen Square on Saturday, August 16, just in time for the Gumballers to watch a week of Olympic finals.
