    EXCLUSIVE PHOTO ALBUM! 2009 GUMBALL RALLY 3000

    • IMGA0136
      See Steve's exclusive Gumball Rally video from NBC-TV's Whipnotic website (copy and paste): https://www.whipnotic.com/videos/viewvideo-558.html Over 120 gas-guzzling super-exotic sports cars, Hummers, Cadillac Escalade SUVs and an occasional interesting older car roared on May 2, 2009, from a California beach-side parking lot directly onto I-10, the Santa Monica Freeway, also known as the Christopher Columbus Transcontinental Highway, for the start of this year's Gumball Rally. The world's most politically-incorrect automotive street event, the Gumball Rally 3000, left Santa Monica (CA) Pier on Saturday, May 2, 2009 and headed toward its ultimate destination of Miami, FL eight days later. Participants reportedly paid $44,000 per car/team to enter the event. Though the Gumball stresses the skills of its drivers (and their cars) there are only two race track "special section" stops scheduled for the 3,000-mile long event, which will be run on public roads with all entrants subject to all highway rules and regulations.

    I've read so much contradictory information about this acceleration issue - some say it's driver error and re-engineered pedals will solve it, others blame microchips... I miss the times when an average human being could actually figure out how a car worked.
