    Who is doing Gumball 2006 ?

    Stage 1
    In deciding to start the event from our natural home and future Olympic host city of London, we're going to kick the proceedure
    off with a HUGE public music concert the night before the flag drops, setting the scene for an amazing departure the following
    day (seeing if we can eclipse 250,000 people that attended this year), where cars will take off aiming for for Turkey, crossing 10
    European countries, including the cities of Brussels, Salzburg, Budapest, Belgrade and Sofia en route to reach Istanbul where
    we will do the unimaginable and fly all 120 supercars and 250 people to Hong Kong, using 3 of the world's largest cargo planes,
    the Antanov, and one private Gumball 3000 Jumbo Jet for all the drivers! If that experience doesn't make this adventure a
    'once in a lifetime' then nothing will!

    Stage 2
    >From Hong Kong, 'Mission 2' of the rally will cover another 1000 miles across the most spectacular countryside ever seen, with
    checkpoints including some of the oldest 'Martial Arts' monestaries and the most futuristic of cities, such as Shanghai, before
    heading to the ancient capital and 2008 Olympic city of Beijing where an unpreceedented music concert will take place in
    Tianamen Square. From here, cars will again be loaded onto the 4 private jets, and this time be flown over the Pacific Ocean to
    the third Olympic host city of Salt Lake in the United States.

    Stage 3
    >From Salt Lake 'Mission 3' will cover the final 1000 miles of the 8 day adventure, starting with races across the famous
    'Bonneville' salt flats where Sir Malcolm Campbell became the first driver to take a car over 300 mph, reaching a staggering
    301.13 in 1935 (lets see who's going to break the Gumball sound barrier!). From the salt flats of Utah, next stop Las Vegas will
    play host to a night of partying before the final dash to our fourth and final Olympic host city of Los Angeles to cross the finish
    line. A music concert will play out the rally followed by a trophy giving bash at Hef's famous 'Playboy Mansion'!

    haha, this is nice, even for gumball standards. flying the cars from turkey to hong kong and then from china to the US... and award ceremony in the playboy mansion... boy!
    at 40,000 GBP i wouldn't call it cheap holidays though.

    Re: Who is doing Gumball 2006 ?

    It's interesting HK will be one of the stop, welcome!

    Re: Who is doing Gumball 2006 ?

    Salman, even if you had the money, by the time you are done buying all sorts of dream cars you'll be broke for this event.

    Mike, if you attend, which car would you choose to participate in? I would suspect the SL due to the long drive nature of the event.

    Re: Who is doing Gumball 2006 ?

    i know edison chen and mc yan did it on 2004

    Re: Who is doing Gumball 2006 ?

    but i think 2006 gumball will cost some major accident in china .

    Yeah, definately! 3000 miles is a long distance! Although I'm currently looking at a Murcielago, but we'll see what happens next year You take your CGT ha?

    Re: Who is doing Gumball 2006 ?

    Mmmmmm.....
    Not this year unfortunately.

    Wondering what would be the ideal car

    May be SLR

    Re: Who is doing Gumball 2006 ?

    CGT with the top down ..

    Re: Who is doing Gumball 2006 ?

    A chipped CL65 would be the ideal car IMO. Lots of space for stowage, very comfortable and, above all, FAST!

    Re: Who is doing Gumball 2006 ?

    Fast but no driving sensations!

    Re: Who is doing Gumball 2006 ?

    Well if anyone does enter I might reluctantly agree to co-drive

    Re: Who is doing Gumball 2006 ?

    Hi Mike,
    just out of interest what do you think about the Pagani Zonda? To me I think it is the greatest supercar on the market right now, a car that also looks and seems like you could also drive a very long distance. Especially considering this is their first car. Do you think it is too pricey? In Australia they cost in Australian Dollars $ 1,200,000!
    Do you know if they sell them in South Africa, if so what is the price?

    Thanks
    Andrew

    I love the zonda!!! especially the F! We don't have a dealer here in SA unfortunately, price sounds about the same here too an enzo costs $1,500,000 here

    Re: Who is doing Gumball 2006 ?

    In Germany costs a Enzo 789.900,00 Euro (=930.502,00 $)!!!
