2017 Gumball 3000 Rally Confirmed to Start in Riga and Finish in Mykonos

Don’t mind the fact that Google Maps insists on a course that spans over 1,963 miles (3,159 km), not 3,000 miles (4,828 kilometers). The bigger problem is that the route printed on the card crosses the Baltic Sea to northern Germany or Denmark, then descends to Lord knows where.

The bottom line is that the starting point and finish line on the card are far, far away from one another, something that doesn’t reflect in reality. In terms of longitude, there’s a difference of 1° between Riga, Latvia, and Mykonos, Greece (24° E versus 25° E). As such, the printed route is erroneous.


On May Bank Holiday, Monday 2, the Gumball 3000 rolled into London and snaked its way down Regent Street, through the crowds to Golden Square.
