Participating in a Gumball 3000 Rally has been on our bucket list for a long, long time.
Finally all the pieces have come together by a combination of hard work and having a clear goal and purpose. We never stopped believing in it… or in ourselves.
Now, with a bit help from Lady Luck, both the route of Gumball 3000 and the vehicle fit perfectly in our plans:
The route starts in Europe and will call Amsterdam in 2015.
The vehicle: all new, all electric, all-wheel drive, dual Motor TESLA Model S P85D with 691 Hp!
Remy Jr and Sr will be the first Dutch team - and the first all-electric team – looking to set the World Record and finish the Gumball 3000 mile rally without stopping at even a single gas-station.
Filling up the car time after time would not be enough of a challenge for us!
We rather go for zero to 60 MPH in 3.1 seconds with zero-emission!
And work out how to make most of our 270 miles range (EPA).
Besides this challenge we are of course very honored to be able to participate in this year’s Gumball and be a part of this iconic event.
Please support the Gumball Foundation and follow us live on social media .
Thanks Remy Jr & Sr
Tesla’s P85D advanced electric powertrain delivers exhilarating performance. Unlike a gasoline internal combustion engine with hundreds of moving parts, Tesla electric motors have only one moving piece: the rotor. As a result, Model S acceleration is instantaneous, silent and smooth. Step on the accelerator and in as little as 3.2 seconds Model S is travelling 60 miles per hour, without hesitation, and without a drop of gasoline. Model S is an evolution in automobile engineering.
The 2015 rally will Start in Stockholm and pass through Oslo, Copenhagen, Amsterdam where we will then fly across the Atlantic Ocean to Reno, continuing onto San Francisco, Los Angeles and ending in Sin City, better known as Las Vegas!
The first day of driving will cover a cross country tour of Sweden driving via the E18, eventually arriving into Norway and stopping for the night in the capital city of Oslo.That evening, Gumball 3000 is taking over Rådhusplassen, where all the Gumball cars will be available to view.
On day 2 of the 2015 'Stockholm to Vegas' Rally, Gumball 3000 returns to Copenhagen following our rally start in 2013.Taking over a historic landmark in the centre of the city, all Gumball cars will be on display from early evening and throughout the night for the public to see.
Gumball 3000 last visited Amsterdam in 2010 which saw some incredible crowds. Slightly different to other city stops Before heading to the airport, cars will be on display at the Amsterdam Arena featuring music, videos and huge crowds.
We are still looking for sponsors who support us in realising our mission.
Run the Gumball 3000 with Zero Emission and No Fuel cost.
