“He wasn’t driving dangerously he hit standing water and it span him not even speeding!” Right.
Being a Gumpert Apollo, we don’t doubt that this sinister supercar is a lot to handle for anyone, amateur or professional. But the Gumball 3000’s reputation isn’t exactly squeaky clean. Just search “Gumball 3000 crashes” on Google, and countless results come up.
The most shocking of which was a 2007 crash involving a TechArt Porsche 997 Turbo. The Porsche was traveling at a high rate of speed when it collided with an oncoming Volkswagen Golf. Sadly, both the driver and the passenger of the Golf were killed.
Thankfully, no one in the Gumpert accident was injured. Let’s all hope this is the first and only crash of the event.
