Extreme Energy has signed a deal to be the exclusive and official energy drink suppliers of the 2005 ‘Gumball 3000’ Rally. Fuelling the 3000-mile road-trip from London to Monaco. Helping the drivers to STOP, REVIVE & SURVIVE!

“Driving for long periods each day Extreme Energy is a perfect top up to keep all the drivers alert and safe” Maximillion Cooper, Gumball 3000 Founder

The hi-jinks start in London on Friday 13th May at the Gumball Palace in Bloomsbury Square, with Extreme Energy fuelling the guests at the Global Premiere of the Gumball Movie ‘6 Days in May’. The premiere will be followed by the ‘party to end all parties’ with Jamiroquai performing live, along with a star-studded night including Sammy Jo (Scissor Sisters Tour DJ), Tyler James, soul diva Kym Mazelle, hip hop stars Aphletik and the Cuban Brothers!

The following afternoon, Saturday 14th May, all 120 amazing cars, including Ferrari Enzo’s, Pagani Zonda’s, Lamborghini’s, Porsche GT’s, to old Aston Martin’s, Rolls Royce’s, Bio-Diesel Hybrid's and even the General Lee will park up on display on Waterloo Place off Pall Mall for all the public and fans to enjoy!

Extreme Energy will be there to provide all 250 drivers, celebrities, pimps and hustlers, glitterati and playboys such as Johnny Knoxville, Jamiroquai’s Jay Kay, Supermodels Caprice and Jodie Kidd, Kill Bill film star Daryl Hannah, Bez from 'The Happy Mondays' and DC Shoes skateboard legend Rob Dyrdek with enough Extreme Energy before they embark on the first stage of the 3000 mile route. Come down and see the start as F1 driver Jenson Button waives the flag as they head off, first destination – Prague!

From Prague the rally carries on through Vienna to Budapest, lapping the Hungaroring F1 circuit, and onto Dubrovnik before crossing the Adriatic Sea and into Italy. The ‘wacky races’ parade then descends around Italy’s southern-most tip, and around “The lady’s boot” before lapping Sicily and heading north to Rome, where the penultimate party takes place.

After a week on the road, drivers cross the finish line after completing 3000 miles in Monaco’s glamorous Casino Square on the evening of Friday 20th May – ready to party the weekend away on the Gumball Superyacht!

Extreme Drinks Head of Marketing Jamie Afnaim “Extreme Energy is perfect for fuelling anything from Riders, Drivers & Athletes to Pimps, Superstars & Playboys and with Gumball 3000 as the ultimate rally this is the perfect platform to do so. This kind of event is right where we should be, in the thick of it!!”
