UPDATE: Josh Cartu & Team Wolfpack Enter the 2016 Gumball 3000

13051505_1092149867523419_3059945416061278900_nFor this year’s edition of the blood-tingling Gumball 3000, racing aficionado Josh Cartu will be joined by actor Sullivan Stapleton. Team Wolfpack isn’t entering the rally just for the hell of it all, but to raise money for the Gumball 3000 Foundation.

The Gumball 300 Foundation helps underprivileged children around the world. It is a fund that works through the Nelson Mandela’s Children fund, the Tony Hawk Foundation, Wish Upon a Star, and other NPOs.

Those who wish to support Team Wolfpack’s fundraising efforts can do so on the Crowdrise platform. Whatever the amount you donate, Cartu promised to do his part of helping by doubling any donation submitted. As an added incentive for those who donate to the Gumball 3000 Foundation, anyone donating 50 euros (roughly $56.63) or more will receive a Team Wolfpack t-shirt to their address.

The supercar Cartu will be driving from Dublin, Ireland, to Bucharest, Romania, is a Ferrari 488 Spider modified to look like the dream machine featured in the video and photo gallery below. Marchettino will keep us up to date with Team Wolfpack on their 3,000-mile (4,800-kilometer) pilgrimage. Team Wolfpack will provide prizes at each stop of the rally, including the final stop in Bucharest, the capital city of Romania.

With each and every stop, the team 25 will offer attendees the chance to win prizes such as an iPhone 6s with custom carbon fiber bits and bobs with Wolfpack branding, an exclusive cap, a similarly exclusive T-shirt Wolfpack, as well as a package with Wolfpack-branded stickers and bracelets.

If you’re seriously lucky, you could possibly win a meeting with a member of the team, during which you’ll have the opportunity to see the Cartu GT3 up close and personal and be photographed with it. Pretty neat VIP experience, isn’t it?

Other cars Josh Cartu has driven for Team Wolfpack in the Gumball 3000 include a Novitec-prepped Ferrari 458 Spider, an F12, and a Rolls-Royce Phantom EWB. Josh’s best result at the annual celebrity motor rally came in 2014 when his peeps at Wolfpack won the team prize. You can keep up with the Canadian-born gentleman driver, Ferrari club president, and entrepreneur by following his official Facebook account.


UPDATE:
The Cartu GT3 won’t be finished in time for the start of the 2016 Gumball 3000 Rally.

All is not lost, though: a Ferrari F12tdf in blue & black livery is the replacement car.
