This morning I was walking to a meeting in Times Square (New York), when by coincidence I passed by the cars participating in this year’s Gumball 3000. The last time I saw the Gumball was in 2008 when they finished the race in Beijing during the Olympics, but now I had the chance to take a closer look at some of the super sports cars.
There were some real gems among them, among others a Bugatti Veyron, a McLaren F1 and several pimped Bentleys.
And even Lightning McQueen participated in the form of a Mercedes-Benz SLS, so of course I took a picture for Scott, who is a big fan of Disney’s Cars. Super cool to see all these cars together at one place!
The Gumball 3000 started today at 12 PM in Times Square right in front of the NASDAQ. This afternoon’s stage is from New York to Toronto. The race lasts 8 days and the cars will arrive in Los Angeles next Saturday. I wouldn’t mind participating in this race myself one day!
