You can read all the latest news and updates in our dedicated section for Gumball 2007!

The Gumball 2007 route:

28th April: Launch party at the Trocadero. The street in front is closed, red carpet, supercars on display etc. This is pretty close to Leicester square, so there should be a lot of people.

29th April: 12 Midday all cars in position on Pall Mall for car display, 4pm rally start! Big Gantry on Pall Mall, similar position as last year but much bigger and better! Onto France via Eurotunnel, Belgium, and Amsterdam! Where the cars park up at the ‘Waterlooplein’ in the centre of Amsterdam, and as you may already know it is Queens day, so a lot of people partying in the streets! Amsterdam is a checkpoint, so the teams park up, pick up their next route card, drink and back on their way.

30th April: From Amsterdam to Frankfurt to Istanbul (obviuosly no sleep yet), the teams drive to a secret airport in Frankfurt where a select few of the Gumball crew will drive all of the cars onto the 2 Antanov airplanes, it will be a very tight fit! About a 4 hour flight to Istanbul, where they land on the asian side, unload, Now the cars will be escorted through the city of Istanbul, thru the most famous street in the city! The teams will finally arrive at the Kempinski Ciragan Palace where they stay for the night, that night will have a James Bond Party probably at the Reina Club!

1st May: From Istanbul to Thessaloniki to Athens. After leaving Istanbul and picking up their next route card the teams head to Thessaloniki where they will have a checkpoint. From Thessaloniki the final leg of the day will bring them to Athens where drivers stay at the Hilton. The Gumball cars will be on display at the Zappio, which is a crazy location a short journey from the hotel. At night there’s a White Party on the Top Floor of the Hilton hotel.

2nd May: From Athens to Tirana. The Gumballers leave Athens first thing in the morning for Tirana in Albania!

3rd May: From Tirana to Dubrovnik to Bratislava. This will be another exhausting day. Travelling through 7 countries: Albania, Montenegro, Bosnia, Croatia, Slovenia, Austria and Slovakia! Leaving Tirana as always first thing in the morning for Dubrovnik. Dubrovnik will be the lunch checkpoint for the day. So the drivers can have a bite to eat, inspect their new route cards and on to Bratislava! In Bratislava the Gumballers are staying in the Raddisson SAS hotel and for the fans there will be a display on Hviezdoslavovo square.

4th May: From Bratislava to Prague to Berlin. The Gumballers will leave Bratislava for a checkpoint in Prague. From Prague the drivers can enjoy the German autobahn on their way to the final checkpoint of the day in Berlin. In Berlin the Gumball 3000 pack stays in the Regent Hotel. Berlin makes a good place for a party especially on a friday night.

5th May: From Berlin to London. From Berlin the cars head for home! The final day’s journey takes them through Holland, Belgium, France and back to Great Britain. Crossing the channel with the Eurotunnel they will be back in London to finish at Whitehall Place and they get ready to celebrate the final party!

  1. Hey Guys,

    DO it in South-Africa or make it an Euro-African Safari!! Say start the race in London fly into say Namibia and race the highway through Namibia Botswana, South-Africa and end up at a finish in awesome Cape-Town!! I think that would be the ultimate to really test some of the cars and their owners!!

  2. being canadian id like to see at least one leg coming through this great (not to mention huge) country that being said why not an around the world through europe then russia fallowed by a north america leg ending in NY

  3. I think it will be cool if we start from Argentina, 1,000 miles in South America from Argentian to Columbia; 1,000 miles from Panama to Mexico; and the final 1,000 miles from Mexico to either LA or NYC. Meaning that we are driving most of the American continent.

  4. It would be cool if the race starts in London, then goes to france, belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Denmark.
    In Denmark with an boat to Sweden. Then they have to drive to Stockholm. From stockholm they fly to St Petersburg (russia), where the last ride would go to Moscow where to finish at the Red Square.

  5. Portugal – Spain – France – Italy – Holand(party:D) – England (Finish)

    I have 19, have a volkswagen Polo 1.3 don’t have money and i want participate Gumball3000 2007 :P

  6. I would love to as long as it’s not in America, I only have one point left on my license! I’m 21, a poor college student and drive a modified 99 Pontiac Trans Am and would love to go, but can’t:(

  7. Hi,

    You should try roads in Nigeria – no speed limits. I have a biking team – our cruise speed is 250km/h with the boys gunning their babies up to 300km/h.

    So your route can be UK through Europe down to Spain than cross to Africa and take West coast all the way down to Nigeria and like someone suggested all the way down to South Africa.

    Wow!!!

  8. i think a Gumball 3000 should start in say London then go to maybe Paris. After that fly to Austrailia and end up in Sydney. But find some time to get on the Autobahn but that would be the only leg to be on any kind of interstate.

  9. i bilieve next years gumball is going from londen to asia and back. 6000 miles in 7 day’s
    It’s gonne be a lot of driving

  10. do it from london to barcelona, and then go to matadepera ( it´s the richest village from spain) it?s at 20 km from barcelona.
    then, go to rome, and then return to london

  11. Hi, from far east of Russia!
    Kamchatka region say Hello to Gamballers!

  12. i think they should go from the UK into Spain all the way down to Gibraltar, its a nice place where there are many tuned up cars and here in Gibraltar we never get to see car rally’s like these.
