The 2009 edition of the Gumball 3000 rally is coming closer. The countdown has started and in exactly 55 days the cars will leave the starting point in Los Angelos and drive to the first checkpoint in Las Vegas. 7 days later, May 8th, the participants will reach their final destination Miami. This years edition is back to “basics”, without flying parts and a rally from the West-Coast to the East-Coast of the United States. Gumball HQ made a brochure where we can find the most important details of the route.

That’s a copy/paste of 2003 (if I remember well)… after last year’s madness it’s a bit disappointing.
i love the cool gumball babes on the starting grid, they always add a bit of glamour.
Serious glamour is the only thing Gumball doesn’t need! Or in other words it has too much!!!
It has turned into a bit overrated mobile party if you ask me. They still bring some nice cars together though…
YEah gumball aint too exciting anymore.
Hey what’s up Max? Met you on the morning drive from Dallas to Houston via Interstate 45. We pulled over to see if Elo and his SSC Ultimate Aero TT were ok cause it was down about 1 hour away from Dallas. I was in the red BMW E90 trailing you. The whole gang out there was pretty cool but Max was definitely down to earth and very easy going.
Shout out to Max Cooper, Dennis Rodman and the Sheikhs in the RR Drophead. Thanks for being so cool!!! You guys rock!
Hey, great post, really well written. You should write more about this. I’ll certainly be subscribing.

I don’t normally comment on blogs, however I have to say that I rather enjoyed yours as it was illuminating. I´ve bookmarked your blog and hope to explorer it further when I have a little more time. Keep up the good work. Well back to my dreaming of Panama or back to the books – I wonder which one is going to win out. :)
