About Gumball 3000:

Gumball 3000, an annual 6-day international street rally, was created in 1999 by ex-racing driver, designer and British entrepreneur Maximillion Cooper. From Cooper's vision to combine cars, music, fashion and entertainment, a pop culture lifestyle brand of the future was born. Taking its name from a combination of Andy Warhol's commentary on pop culture and Cooper's fascination with the future around the turn of the century, the annual event has evolved into a weeklong festival hosted by global cities, closing off streets to organize music concerts, action sports demos and spectacular automotive displays.

By 2001, the rally was televised internationally to record audiences that gave rise to Gumball 3000 becoming a near-overnight sensation. The festival now achieves live crowds of a million people, and a televised and online audience that reaches over 60 million households in over 100 countries.
