For those who care. This years euro gumball kicks off March 5th. Looks like some cool cars including 5 enzo's! :eek:. Got an email from Maximillion with some details,

Hi All You Gumballers,

Welcome back Gumballers for the sixth annual ‘Gumball 3000 Rally’. If you watched Johnny Knoxville and the rest of MTV’s Jackass’ crew when they took part from London to Russia and back, you have been warned.
And if you didn’t, I suggest you prepare yourselves, as in 2004 they and their Asian MTV equivalents (The 'Ai Ya' boys) are back for more, and this time they’re serious!

The entry grid closed several weeks ago, and there are only 20 days to go until the chequered flag drops, so if you want to come to the start line and cheer off your favourite Gumballers in their amazing cars, now is the
time to start making plans. The Rally kicks off in Paris on Wednesday May 5th and travels to Madrid, Marbella, Casablanca, Marrakech, Fez, Barcelona and then finishes in Cannes, 6 days and 3000 miles later. 165 cars
are taking part including 65 Ferrari's (including 5 Enzos), 30 Lamborghini's, 3 McLaren F1's, 2 Laraki's, 1 Koenigsegg, 2 Pagani Zondas, and several Bentleys and Rolls Royces as well as many eccentric cars such as
Hummers, Limousines, old American Muscle cars, Japanese modified vehicles and even a London Taxi.

Entrants have come from all over the world, with cars being shipped to the start line from Russia, China, South Africa, Brazil, the Middle East, USA, and of course all over Europe. We have Royal families and numerous
celebrities and eccentric characters from film, music, sport and fashion. These include Paul Walker the star of the movies 'Fast & Furious', music stars such as Goldie and Atomic Kitten, and France's own celebrity DJs
David and Cathy Guetta, along with numerous pro skaters including Tony Hawk, Bucky Lasek, Rob Dyrdek & Big Black, Josh Kalis, Jeremy Klein, and Willy Santos, and even Hollywood Oscar winning actor, star of The
Pianist, Adrien Brody.

Described by Vogue as 'the most glamorous rally ever staged' the ‘Gumball’ is unlike any other car event, and these 6 days will throw up all the thrills 'n' spills of its inspirational 70s Cannonball Run movies, and much much
more. With parties each night hosted by ‘Royalty and Rock’ stars together, as well as lapping the circuit at the Barcelona Grand Prix, burning rubber has never smelt so good!

Is Ryan Dunn the new Dom DeLouise? Will the Enzo's lead the pack or break down on the Paris ring road? Will Jodie Kidd get lost in the desert? Will Chris Eubank wear his monacle? And will the Jackass'es play any
pranks to disrupt Schuey’s concentration at the Spanish GP?

Stayed Tuned,
