Gumball 3000 ‘Miami 2 Ibiza’ Regent Street 8 June

16/06/2014

Miami Beach was the 1st location for this year's Gumball 3000 Rally where cars were displayed along Miami's fashionable Art Deco district Ocean Drive.  Gumball teams began their adrenaline-fuelled adventure on 5th June 2014 travelling to various U.S destinations before reaching New York from where most of the cars were transported on cargo planes to Scotland.  The rally left Scotland on the morning of 8 June stopping at Manchester City Stadium then came to London.

Thousands of spectators lined London's buzzing Regent Street to watch the Gumball Rally on a warm summer's evening.  Pukka PR first covered the event from inside the grid then followed the route to where cars were parked in Golden Square. Gumball events have always attracted large crowds but this year seemed to be the busiest we've ever seen.

Maximillion Cooper Founder of Gumball 3000 made an appearance with his fiancée U.S Hip-Hop artiste Eve who is also a seasoned Gumball participant.  She was featured in Pukka PR's previous online coverage of Gumball 2010 in Pall Mall.

At dusk crowds had dispersed and most of the media had gone home but my mum Amita and I continued taking photos of cars into the late hours of the evening.  We've covered Gumball 3000 in London extensively in previous years 2007, 2010 and 2011. Gumball is always a thrilling experience viewing superb supercars with many customised and rare models from abroad.  Abarth 695 Biposto was the official Gumball car and, Wiesmann MF5, Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, Lamborghini Aventador, Mercedez Benz SLS AMG, Mc Claren 650s, Jaguar F-type were some of the outstanding cars featured in the rally.  A bespoke ‘Purrari' Ferrari 458 was created especially for electronic music artiste Deadmau5 who along with his co-driver Tony Belleci won the ‘Spirit of Gumball' award.  Some cars were colourfully wrapped with designs and others decorated with neon stickers inspired by U.S TV series Miami Vice.

Aside from Gumballers tearing down streets and high ways in supercars at each location they enjoy a fun-packed itinerary attending parties, music shows, lunches and private tours during the rally.

From London the rally moved on to the Mediterranean route covering France and Spain completing the Gumball rally in Spain's popular party island Ibiza.  Pukka PR congratulates Max and Eve who tied the knot in Ibiza - a romantic ending to Gumball ‘Miami 2 Ibiza' 2014.  We wish Max and Eve a long happy future together and maybe next time we see them they'll have a Gumball baby in tow...
