If you’re a fan of high-performance cars and high-speed road rallies, you might be interested in this year’s Cannonball 2000. Fifty supercars driven by a number of celebrities will embark on a 2,000 mile journey on September 5, 2012. It takes place over five days and travels from London to Paris, via Barcelona, Monte Carlo and Milan. The event is raising funds for the children’s charity Dreams Come True (www.dctc.org.uk).
Entries range from a DeLorean DMC-12 to a Lamborghini Gallardo LP570 Performante, as well as the Bentley Speed, a number of Aston Martins, Range Rover Sport, Jaguar XK and a large number of BMWs and Porsches. Ferrari fans will enjoy the California, 430 and 360 Modena.
The grid will be formed outside the London Hilton Park Lane Hotel and the route takes in dramatic scenery along a rewarding route complimented each evening by exclusive VIP experiences including a beach party at the Hotel Arts in Barcelona, to Jimmy’s Casino and nightclub in Monaco.
