This year, kicking off from Mykonos for a 3000-mile road trip to Ibiza, the Gumball 3000 Rally will mix top celebrities, influencers and crazy supercar owners to enjoy together a full week of terrific experiences and challenges.
For 2019, the Carrera Driving Team will run the engine of a special Alfa Romeo Supercar in Mykonos and reach Athens together with the other 120 participant cars, where the rally continues across to Thessaloniki, Porto Montenegro, Venice, Monaco, Barcelona and finally Ibiza.
Carrera has joined forces with another official partner of Gumball 3000, KAPPA, presenting two limited edition styles: Carrera Glory/SE and Carrera Hyperfit 5046/SE. Both styles feature the official colours of Gumball 3000, black and gold, and are personalized with the famous Kappa “OMINI” logo on the elastic band. The GUMBALL 3000 logo also appears on the end of the tip.
Established in 2013, the Gumball 3000 Foundation intends to benefit underprivileged youths through an educational and recreational infrastructure based projects around the world. The mission is to give underprivileged youths greater opportunities in life, ensuring that future generations are invested in and presented with every occasion to be the best version of themselves. During the annual Gumball 3000 rally, the Foundation hosts a live auction in partnership with Christie’s as well as the Online Charity Grid, in which all the participating teams compete to start the rally in pole position by donating money to their team. To date the Gumball 3000 Foundation has raised £2.5 million. This year in Monaco, Christie’s will present the exclusive objects and experiences donated from partners and participants for a bid to donate as much as possible and therefore sustain the Gumball 3000 charity activities.
For this purpose, Carrera is proud to introduce one of the highest expressions of its product craftsmanship: the gold-plated edition CARRERA 3000/SE, specially crafted for the ‘Gumball 3000 – Mykonos to Ibiza'. Inspired by the brand’s heritage in the world of sports and connected with one of the most recent trends, this mixed-curved shape with lower temples is plated in 18ct gold.
