Intro:
Most of you have heard of GUMBALL3000. This summer, SCCUK will bring you our very own 3000km rally to some of the most beautiful places on earth in Europe. The nine-days rally will depart from London, travel through France, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Italy and Luxembourg, 9 countries. You will experience the unlimited-speed Autobahn, the challenging Nurburgring, visit the Mercedes-Benz and the Porsche Museum, as well as the world’s most beautiful countryside and Alps mountain passes, and of course, luxurious shopping and party experience in Milan! We hope to bring you an unforgettable lifetime experience.

Day 1 – Sunday, 02/07/2017
London — Dover — Dunkirk — Bruges — Antwerp
Drive approx. 380Km
On the first day, all participants from UK will gather in East London (gathering location will be communicated with participants), and start our journey to Dover, and embark our cars on a ferry through the Dover Strait to Dunkirk in France.

Participants from Europe will meet us in Dunkirk.

Our first stop in Europe will be Bruges, which if you’ve never heard of, there is a movie called “In Bruges”, check it out before your journey begin. This fairy-tale medieval town is known for the Northern Venice. After the afternoon break in Bruges, we will head north to Antwerp, which is one of the main tourist attraction in Belgium as well as business center and port. It is also the biggest diamond processing center in the world. Surrounded by museums, art galleries and fine architecture, we will stay here overnight.

Day 2 – Monday, 03/07/2017
Antwerp — Nurburgring
Drive approx. 270Km
I’m sure as a car lover, you must have heard of the legendary Nurburgring, which is a must-see attraction, even if you are not into cars. Total 21 km with 154 corners, you will see undreds of rare cars and race cars, even delivery van and mini buses! Nurburgring does not discriminate, as long as you have the passion for speed.

If your supercar got beaten by a van, don’t be surprised, as the track is full of great drivers with ‘slow’ cars.

Or you could also try the famous Ring Taxi, driven by professional drivers, allow you to have the full Nurburgring experience.

We will insist all participants to take it easy, as damaging the car on the second day would dampen the mood for the rest of the trip.

Day 3 – Tuesday, 04/07/2017
Nurburgring — Stuttgart
Drive approx. 330Km
Today is a day to relax, while driving through the famous Autobahn, there are some section of unlimited speed roads. We will visit the Mercedes Benz museum and the Porches museum, which will be a great fun for car fanatics.

As well known, Stuttgart is the hometown of Porsche and Mercedes Benz, however if you are not interested in these two, we have also arranged afternoon tea and shopping events for you to participate.

Day 4 – Wednesday, 05/07/2017
Stuttgart — Neuschwanstein Castle — Liechtenstein
Drive approx. 420Km
Today we are going to the Neuschwanstein Castle! It is possibly the most beautiful castle in the world. Situated on the south side of Alps, the castle housed the most exciting and mysterious stories from 1869.

This fairytale look of the Neuschwanstein castle inspired Walt Disney to create the Magic Kingdom. Today, Neuschwanstein is the most visited castle in Germany, and one of the most popular tourist destination in the world. Neuschwanstein Castle has a very beautiful inner garden surrounded by a walled courtyard. It even has an artificial cave. Neuschwanstein’s interior is as beautiful as its outside. Though only 14 rooms were finished before Ludiwg II’s sudden death in 1886, these rooms were majestically decorated.

We could also drive up to the Marienbrücke behind it, where most of the panoramic pictures of the castle was taken. The view will be breathtaking!!!

Our today’s journey end at Liechtenstein, which some of you might never heard of. It is a tiny country located between Austria and Switzerland, about 160 square kilometers in area, with a 37000 population, however the average income is over staggering 60000 euros.

Since 2011, the country can be rented out on a day rate of £40,000. The honorary king will be given a key, with the liberty to use the land, even ordering police force. Anyone interested to be King for a day?

Day 5 – Thursday, 06/07/2017
Liechtenstein — Stelvio Pass — Milan
Drive approx. 390Km
Today we will drive the very famous Stelvio Pass, which was regularly referred as the best driving road on earth, no wonder Top Gear and Evo crews often came here.

It’s not only one of the most beautiful, but also one of the highest (official the third highest in the Alps at 2757M) and most dramatic mountain passes to drive in the European Alps.

After enjoy the breathtaking scenery, we will get rest and spend our night in Milan.

Day 6 – Friday, 07/07/2017
Milan
0Km
Milan, what is the first thing that jumped into your head?

Prada? Armani? Gucci? AC Milan? or

Ferrari? Lamborghini? Maserati? Alfa Romeo?

In consideration of the preferences each of you may have, SCCUK is arranging this day to be a free activity day, where you can explore your own version of Milan. If you are interested in shopping, Montenapoleone, Sant’Andrea will be your best choice; if you wish for a nice Italian meal, Ribot, Cracco, Larte is within your reach.

Day 7 – Saturday, 08/07/2017
Milan — Furka Pass — Zurich
Drive approx. 370Km
After a relaxing day in Milan, we will go back to the nature, arriving at the famous Furka Pass, which is known for being another best driving road.

The Furka Pass was imortalised by the Aston DB5 / Ford Mustang car chase in James Bond’s Goldfinger, and is another stunning 5-star pass in the central Swiss Alps, part of the “Big 3” passes close by to Andermatt.

We will drive through Lucerne, which is a picturesque town situated by Lake Lucerne. It is one of the most visited town in Swiss due to the medieval architecture, the wooden footbridge Kapellbrücke, and of course the Lake Lucerne, surrounded by mountains.

We will continue to Zurich and spend a night there.

Day 8 – Sunday, 09/07/2017
Zurich — Black Forest — Luxembourg City
Drive approx. 420Km
The last day of our rally is travelling from Zurich to Luxembourg via Black Forest. Although it is not a mountain passes, but it is still a top rated road for the majestic view and historic sites. The Black Forest and it’s seemingly endless number of sweeping trails and deserted roads, a bikers and drivers dream.

Luxembourg has been listed as World Heritage by UNESCO since 1994, for its integration of historic remains and modern designs.
