Kein Promo-Trick, sondern Tatsache: die beiden Formel 1 Stars David Coulthard und Jean Alesi starten beim Gumball 3000 in einem Mercedes AMG C63 Coupé Black Series in Laureus „Drive for Good“-Farben.
This was the first day the teams didn’t have to get up early in the morning. As we all know the Gumball 3000 isn’t a race, and the only reason that people speed up their cars is because they simply want to get a few more hours of sleep. Team one decided to depart around noon.
In the morning we started in Paris around nine AM. As expected all Gumballers were ready to face the daily Parisian traffic. Indeed, It has been a big challenge to get out from the Parisian "Peripherique". Team one was very fortuned to have their Parisian Gumball trainee in the car who could pilot us easily and smooth via the best alternative route out of Paris.
After a short night of sleep, yet again, we were on time at our cars, ready to drive to the Top Gear race track. The car parked next to us, a Bentley from team Batsafe, asked team 1 if they could follow them out of London.
We are very sorry for this extreme late update on our Gumball 3000 tour to Ibiza. As you all know we had to take a flight from NY City to Scotland, so because of the time difference, the flight, our off-day in NY City and the late arrivals, we skipped two days.
This morning was an early start. We arrived at our cars a 8 o clock in the morning, because of the long drive from Atlanta to New York, via Charlotte.
Hi dear followers,
So, yesterday was our first actual driving day. We started driving after a nice drivers briefing by Maximillion Cooper, followed by a speech of a Sheriff, telling us to take the speed limits in mind etc.
Good morning Gumball friends!!
After a good break at the Braekers hotel and a excellent breakfast teams 1 & 2 hit the road to Miami Beach Florida.
