Gumball 3000 2018
In an unusual move, the Gumball 3000 organization announced ahead of the start of the 2017 edition of the rally what the 2018 rally route will be.
With the impending start of the 2017 edition of the Gumball 3000 Rally, that starts on the 1st of July in Riga in Latvia and finishes on the island of Mykonos in Greece on the 8th of July.
We all know that route for the 2017 was announced, officially in June 2016, but in a unprecedented move today, the organization announced the 2018 route to be from London to Tokyo. Given the logistical nightmare of running a intercontinental rally, it is giving the Gumballer's a chance to get themselves organized ahead of the 2018 rally.
There will be many speculations as to what the route will be, but looking at the history of the rally, from it's inception in 1999, they will most likely go from London to somewhere in mainland Europe and from there fly all the cars to Japan.
One possible route could be London to Monaco to Milan and then a fly to mainland China or possibly Seoul, South Korea to Busan and then over to Japan via Hiroshima to Osaka and finally Tokyo.
Regardless how the route turns out, it will be, in true Gumball 3000 style, one adventure not to miss and most likely, never to forget. One have to remember that the 2018 edition is also the 20th anniversary edition of Gumball 3000.
