UAE gears up for famous Gumball 3000 road rally



The world renowned Gumball 3000 is coming to the Middle East for the first time.

The UAE has been chosen to host the first global series of Luxury (LUX) Tours. Gumball 3000 started in 1999 and is arguably the world’s most famous road rally, as it attracts some of the world’s most desirable and unique cars.

The UAE’s LUX Tour will be launched at the Burj Khalifa on November 1. The following day participants will embark on a two-day tour across the Emirates. It will end on November 4 at the 2012 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

“The UAE is famous around the world for the amazing cars that can be seen on its roads and the passion of its car fans,” said Maximillion Cooper, founder and CEO of the Gumball Group. “When you throw in the amazing scenery and stunning, five-star venues, it’s not difficult to see why we chose the Emirates to host our very first LUX Tour.” More info
