Why the GUMBALL 3000? Why the HELL not?
Taking part in the Gumball 3000 has been a decade long dream of mine. Rarely a day goes by that I don’t think about it. I wouldn’t label myself as obsessed but I have been know to drive the length of California from my home base in San Diego to Mt. Shasta in 10 hours (725 miles).
I know that I have the chops for this race, now it’s time to assemble the team, a kick ass ride, and the resources to take part in this most epic of adventures. Where else can you tour a continent (sometimes the world) with a crazy group of business tycoons, athletes and rockstars? What’s not to love about that?
Taking a quick trip down memory lane I was first introduced to the GUMBALL 3000 in 2003 after watching Mischief 3000 (Gumball Rally). When you have a minute watch the trailer.
I’m probably a little more than average compared to your typical Gumballer. But here are the quick stats. I’m 31 years old living in southern California. I love cars and takes lots of photos of them, beside traveling and occasionally forcing my wife to practice for the Gumball. I’m the CTO of an investment bank and supervise building and maintaining of online training platforms and content.
Do you want front row access to all of the behind the scenes of what it takes to do the Gumball? Everything from planning/booking travel, shipping/acquiring a car, packing/unpacking, airports, the parties, hours behind the wheel, and on and on? This site will serve as the journal and blueprint for how an average guy can take part on the Gumball3000. I encourage you to follow the journey and support it by sharing with your friends and petrolheads alike. Follow my successes, learn from my mistakes and watch as each day I work towards accomplishing this dream. I’m sure you wont be disappointed.
Take part in the Gumball3000. It’s a simple goal but one with lots of hurdles.
