The 2013 Gumball 3000 rally was officially launched on Sunday 19th May, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. when a total of 100 cars started the 3,000-mile road trip to Monte Carlo. The journey began in Copenhagen, Denmark and crossed a total of 11 European countries all the way to Monte Carlo, Monaco.

In the third day of the rally, Gumballers were supposed to go from Saint Petersburg, Russia to Tallinn, Estonia. The only problem was that all the cars were stuck waiting at the border between the two countries, as border control processed each car. It took about 5 hours to get through the border and they arrived in Tallinn just in time for lunch in the Old Town Square!

While we do feel sorry for the poor drivers and the organizers of the Gumball 3000, however we can’t help but pass on the video that was posted by Youtube user, Shmee150, showing the cars lined up at the border control, during their wait to enter Estonia. At least we get a good look at a ton of premium models that ran the rally this year.
