Gumball 3000 all set for UAE luxury tour

Gumball 3000, arguably the world’s most famous luxury rally, is coming to the Middle East for the very first time, and United Arab Emirates is chosen as the venue for the brand’s inaugural Luxury Tour, starting this November.

With limited number of spaces available, organisers are inviting participants from across the UAE and Middle East to sign up for the high profile extravaganza. The first LUX Tour kicks off in the UAE, ending at the 2012 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Potential Gumballers can find out more at

The Gumball 3000 UAE LUX tour will begin on 1st November with an exclusive reception at the highest event space in the world, Level 153 at Burj Khalifa, Dubai. The following day, participants will embark on a two-day journey through the UAE, taking in the Emirates’ beautiful desert, mountain and coastal scenery, and enjoying overnight stops at several of the world’s most high profile locations – the Atlantis Hotel on the Palm Jumeirah and the Bab al Shams resort.

The final day, 4th November, will see the cars, drivers and passengers head to the finish line at the Yas Marina circuit, where the Gumballers will board an exclusive yacht to enjoy the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, and to celebrate and reminisce on their incredible journey.

The Gumball 3000 covers around 4,800 km of public roads, with routes that change every year. With the emphasis on ‘Adventure’ rather than ‘Speed’, the Gumball 3000 attracts some of the world’s most desirable and unique cars, as well as participants who join up to enjoy the mix of high-octane fun and five-star evening hospitality.

Numerous A-list celebrities like Snoop Dogg, David Guetta, Johnny Knoxville, Tony Hawk and David Hasselhoff have participated in the event, driving iconic cars as the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport, McLaren MP4-12C, Bentley Brooklands and numerous Lamborghinis, Ferraris and Aston Martins.
