With both the American and Middle East rallies of 2022 behind them, the drivers and fans take to Europe for an all-out spectacle along some of the finest roads and scenery you can find in Europe. The Gumball 3000 has visited most of the stops on the 2023 tour before, but all with a slightly different approach to each location, some might remember Amsterdam back in 2015 when the rally visited the Amsterdam ArenA for a 100-car music festival, of sorts, before they loaded everything up on some airplanes and flew to Reno, Nevada. But, that was then, and this year the rally does not end there for the European fans, but instead ever onwards to the next location.

For the first time since 2016, the Gumball 3000 is headed back to Scotland, and on this occasion, the rally is headed to Edinburgh to take over the city for the official start line and flag drop of the 2023 European Tour. Gumball 3000 returns to London (last start line in 2018) for a spectacular festival of 100 supercars, superstars, music & more. For the first time since 2015, the rally is heading back to the Netherlands to take over their capital city in a festival of music, supercars, and superstars, in a trip to see the die-hard Dutch fans that are long overdue.

After an epic night in Amsterdam, Gumball 3000 is treating Gumballers to some of the best drives Europe has to offer, traveling south through the Swiss Alps and taking in some of the very best mountain roads and hotels in the world. Fresh from a stop in the Swiss Alps, Gumball 3000 will head to the stunning city of Venice, which will host a festival of supercars and superstars for fans, as well as the Gumball 3000 Foundation Charity Evening to raise money for underprivileged youth in low-income communities.

After two incredible nights in The Alps and Venice, Gumball 3000 returns to Hungary for fans to see the Gumball grid arrive in central Budapest. The city is one of the absolute favorites to come and visit, having traveled through multiple times since as early as 2005, and the excitement of being able to come back. After a week filled with memories to last a lifetime, and having traveled 3000 miles in just 6 days, the Gumballers cross the finish line in the stunning Porto Montenegro for a weekend of beach parties, celebrations, and the coveted Gumball Awards.
