Gumball 3000 rolls through Toronto – photo gallery

Maximillion Cooper is an entrepreneur, racing driver, ex-skateboarder as well as creative director and founder of the Gumball 3000 rally which he created in the namesake of the hit film Cannonball Run.

For those of you who don’t know what the Gumball 3000 is, it’s a coast to coast race spanning 3000 miles with pit stops in some of North America most populous cities to show off some of the finest, most fabulous and rarest cars; its a car enthusiast’s mecca.

Gumball 3000 has evolved from its humble beginnings as a notorious cross country street race to become a global juggernaut constantly evolving. Now in its 14th year, the Gumball 3000 seamlessly combines art, music, film and automobiles into one of the most exquisitely unique, lifestyle brands out there today. The Gumball brand is valued at somewhere in the neighborhood of $300-million.

The Gumball 3000’s appeal is not limited to car aficionados anymore. This year the gumball shutdown Times Square, and for several hours, and crowds flocked to see the cars and the drivers of their cars before they headed off to their hotel and the evening’s festivities.

Toronto, the only Canadian stop on the Gumball 3000 rally, had crowds lining the streets in advance of the arrival of the gumballer’s for a chance to see some amazing automobiles and their drivers. And as one father and daughter commented  it was well worth the wait.

This year’s Gumballers were Maximillion Cooper, Eve, Bun B, The Dudeson’s, Dirty Sanchez, Malibu’s Most Wanted, Daryl Hannah, DJ Muggs, Goldie, Travis Barker, along with many others.

It wouldn’t be a Gumball if we didn’t hear stories of teams having navigational issues,  breakdowns, and police pulling over some of the Gumballers for tickets, pictures or both.
