Gumball 3000 sounds like a name for some kind of a crazy gumball machine but in reality its is actually a really cool event. Gumball 3000 is a car rally where multiple celebrities and car enthusiasts participate in a roughly 3000 mile long rally. This year they are travelling from Dublin, Ireland to Bucharest, Romania. Any one can participate in the rally, as long as they pay the entrance fee, which this year was set at £35,000. Many different celebrities participate in this yearly event like the Deadmau5, David Hasselhoff, Tony Hawk, Snoop Dogg, and even some race car drivers life Ken Block and F1 driver Kimi Räikkönen. The point of the event is to try and get to the end destination first, and this is where people have a lot of problems with this event. Many drivers are pulled over and given tickets, some have their license suspended, others even have their cars impounded. Overall it is a really great event that in the end raises money to help underprivelaged kids. It will definitely be exciting to see who wins this years rally.
