Gumball 3000, the world-famous sportscar rally, delighted fans as 100 supercars zipped into Expo City Dubai on Friday with a pit stop at Al Wasl Plaza.
Making its Middle East debut for the motor rally's 23rd edition, a line-up of celebrity drivers and more than 100 elite high-performance cars – which included Lamborghinis, Ferraris and a Bugatti Divo – set off from Burj Park on 13th November, traversing dramatic sea and desertscapes across the UAE and Oman, before purring through Al Wasl Avenue and arriving at the magnificent Al Wasl Plaza, for an electrifying projection show that mesmerised drivers and spectators alike.
The evening's highlights included a 'meet and greet' with drivers, including British YouTuber Yung Filly, Moroccan-American rapper French Montana, and Hanan Mazouzi Sobati, founder of the Arabian Gazelles, the first all-women supercar owner's club in Dubai.
Sobati piloted an Alfa Romeo Stelvio for The Purple Team, including nine drivers from the UAE and Oman.
The epic and eclectic adventure will conclude at Yas Marina Circuit on Sunday, where they will join in the celebrations for the finale of the Formula 1 season.
