Gumball 3000 2010
Signature Car Hire was proud to be part of the Gumball 3000 rally in 2010, and especially
pleased to showcase their top of the range sports cars with well know celebrities
The Wire star Idris Elba in addition to Jewelry designer Jade Jagger and US singer
The Wire star Idris Elba has revved his engines in Signature’s Aston Martin DB9 Volante
to kick off the Gumball 3000 2010 alongside movie actor Michael Madsen.
Jewellery designer Jade Jagger and US singer Eve brought extra glamour to the proceedings
as a host of super cars set off on the 3,000-mile trip from London’s Pall Mall to
New York. Eve, who is part of a team of all-female drivers in Signature’s Bentley
convertible GTC, said: “We are representing for the whole female race. This is a
boys’ club for sure, but I love that we broke into the boys’ club.”
She donned a figure-hugging leopard print outfit for the event, but swapped her
towering wedges for flat boots before getting behind the wheel.
Asked about her main concerns, she said: “I’ve never driven on the right side of
the car so I want to get comfortable with that and I want to make sure I abide by
the laws. I don’t want to be the girl who gets pulled over and given a ticket.”
Also taking part were skateboard star Tony Hawk and US rapper Xzibit. The 12th annual
rally this year takes in Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Stockholm, where cars are flown
to North America. The next leg includes Boston, Quebec and Toronto before finishing
in New York’s Times Square.
