2014 Gumball 3000

The route passes through Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and New York to name a few – before speeding through Edinburgh, London, Paris and Barcelona. After a week of racing almost 500 miles a day, the grand finale will be held on the party island of Ibiza.
This year’s event features a McLaren P1, only 375 of which were made last year with a 3.8-litre twin turbocharged engine, a 0-60mph speed of less than three seconds and a price tag that starts at $1.3million.
As if that wasn’t enough, the Saudi Arabian team which entered the car is also entering an even more unusual vehicle – a full-scale road-legal replica of Batman’s Tumbler from the blockbuster Dark Knight trilogy.

From there it is a drive to Paris and Barcelona before, finally, taking a ship to the dance capital of Ibiza on Wednesday.
The huge event is in its 16th year, and its brash approach and use of public roads has not been without controversy.
Millionaire Nicholas Morley, 30, from Bowden, Cheshire, was handed a two-year suspended sentence in 2007 after his Porsche 911 hit an elderly couple’s Volkswagen Golf as the rally passed through Macedonia.
The couple died, and Morley was convicted of ‘endangering traffic leading to death’.
He later told the Manchester Evening News: ‘We weren’t racing – in fact we’d stopped at a number of places that morning to take pictures. I came round a corner and saw a flash of red ahead.
‘The other car was pulling out of a junction. There was literally no time to do anything other than brace ourselves.’
The rally was scrapped as a ‘sign of respect’, but it was not the last crash by a Gumball car.
In last year’s race, a man dressed in a tiger onesie crashed his Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV – of which 168 have ever been made – straight into a fence near the starting line in Copenhagen, Denmark.
