This is a press release that is dated on Friday for an event happening the same day. If they wanted to get more publicity, they probably should have given people more notice that celebrities were going to be around. For those that don’t know, GUMBALL 3000 is a car rally. I know this is late, but I didn’t even see the press release until Saturday when the event was over.
Attracting ‘rock stars’ to ‘royalty’, the entry grid of over 100 amazing cars and 200 celebrity participants in this year’s New York to L.A. Gumball 3000 Rally is nothing short of spectacular. 100 of the world’s most beautiful, expensive, desirable, classic, eco and extravagant automobiles will converge on the Skylon Tower at 7pm, Friday, May 25 along with 200 celebrity participants flying in from over 40 countries to take part in this exclusive rally.
This year’s track is from New York to Los Angeles, 7 days, 2 countries, 12 states and 3000 miles of adventure and celebrity glitz. From Hollywood icons and superstars including the hilarious high jinx and fueled mayhem of the Dudesons, David ‘The Hoff’ Hasselhoff to music legends Eve, Bun B, Cypress Hill’s DJ Muggs, and Dirty Sanchez to skateboard god Tony Hawk – Gumball is coming to the Skylon Tower, Niagara Falls on Friday May 25 at 7pm. Along also are Yasmin, Nigel Sylvester, Terry Kennedy, Jon Olsson, Madcon and many more notables.
From the Niagara Falls Review:
There will be eye candy galore for celebrity-watchers and gear-heads Friday when Hollywood celebs, music stars and sports figures roar into Niagara Falls as part of the Gumball 3000 London-to-New York car rally.
Actor David Hasselhoff, famous for his roles in Baywatch and Knight Rider is one of the tour’s regular participants, along with skateboarding legend Tony Hawk.
The celebrity-packed parade of high-end automobiles will stop at the Skylon Tower during the last leg of the eight day tour, the stretch from Toronto and New York City.
Gumball 3000 is a rally from London to New York, but it takes a different route each year. For the past 12 years, the rally has enlisted folks who live in the fast lane to drive cars like Lamborghinis, Ferrari, Rolls Royces and Bugattis. There are also novelty entries like the 1966 and 1989 Batmobiles and the A-Team van used in the movie to be released later this year.
This comes from a press release I received from the Skylon Tower:
Look out…. ‘the world’s most rock ‘n roll car rally ever staged’ is coming to the Skylon Tower Niagara Falls, Canada!
On Saturday, May 1 the flag will drop at Waterloo Place on the Pall Mall in London following a day of celebrity entertainment, celebrations and skateboard demo by legend Tony Hawk and his skate team. From London the 3000 mile route begins… [with] stopovers in Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Stockholm. From Sweden all 120 vehicles and participants are flown to North America to continue their journey stopping in Boston, Quebec and Toronto, before a pit stop and lunch at the Skylon Tower in Niagara Falls. From Niagara Falls they’ll head directly to the finish line in Times Square, New York City.

Unfortunately I won’t be able to make it down. My wife is out of town and I’ll have 3 small children with me. I’d end up losing one of them in the crowd!
