Gumball 3000 was launched in 1999 by British entrepreneur Maximillion Cooper, following his vision to combine action sports, automobiles and music to create a popular culture lifestyle brand. It all began by Maximillion inviting his celebrity friends to join him on an action packed road-trip across Europe, driving beautiful cars and hosting legendary parties attended by the likes of Kate Moss, Jamiroquai, Kylie Minogue and Johnny Knoxville. Over the following decade the concept grew from an underground car rally, fuelled by myth and rumour, into a global brand attracting the endorsement of blue chip corporations such as Nike, You Tube, Fiat and Red Bull – and the participation of celebrities including; deadmau5, David Hasselhoff, Snoop Dogg, EVE, Travis Barker, Xzibit, Adrien Brody, Tyson Beckford, David Guetta, Tony Hawk and Dennis Rodman.
