Any 1er in the Gumball 3000?

I discoverd that the Gumball 3000 rally will pass through Sweden next week.
Does anyone know if there will be any 1-series in the rally?
Any member here who will be joining the rally?

They are coming to my city around 5th of May, I will definitely try to see the cars and maybe even drive with them. If only only I'd know which roads they go by and the time... I'd drive with them for an hour or two just for the fun of it.

In Sweden they have a drifting show at one of the tracks. The track is also open for public and the open hours is written at the webpage of the track. Maybe they are planning a stop at a track near you too? Otherwise you can get more information at other forums maybe the M3 Forum?

Gumball is not what is used to be. Over the last few years it has featured a lot of participants with too much cash relative to driving skill, causing deaths and accidents across Europe. Shame really... One of the main reasons Team Polizei and Alex Roy - multiple winner of the event in his E39 M5 no longer participates.

Not going deep enough into Germany to be worth driving up there to see them

My opinion too! I think itīs mostly a big commercial party now. But they have done a great work because they get a lot of attention and that probably generates a lot of money today
