Copenhagen – GUMBALL 3000 launched its 15th anniversary road trip on Friday night in epic style with a star-studded party at the Royal Copenhagen Opera House.
The evening was hosted by Gumball 3000 founder Maximillion Cooper and featured a host of celebrity Gumballers including David Hasselhoff, Grammy Award winning rapper and actress Eve, The Cuban Brothers, MTV’s The Dudesons, Bun B and a host of Danish celebrities.
Gumball team, Team Galag, unveiled two spectacular new cars, a replica of the Batman Tumbler and the TG1 supercar. Both were created specifically for the road trip.
Guests were treated to a performance by The Cuban Brothers and an exclusive set from Grammy award winning artist Eve. A replica of Kimi Raikkonen’s F1 steering wheel was also auctioned off by prestigious auction house Christie’s.
The steering wheel is the first of seven lots to be auctioned over the course of the road trip in aid of the Gumball 3000 Foundation; a non-profit organisation set up to benefit underprivileged youths by providing education and infrastructure. The organisers of the Gumball Rally expect to raise £1m from the charity auctions.
