Budapest also hosted the rally during last year’s edition, where participants got the opportunity to push their cars to the limit on the nearby Hungaroring. The third driving day sees the rally travel to the beautiful and picturesque city of Dubrovnik in the very Southern tip of Croatia on the Adriatic Sea. Dubrovnik is famous for its Unesco world heritage sites and role as a set in the popular HBO Game of Thrones series. The next day the Gumballers will get to enjoy the scenic driving roads of Montenegro, and arrive in Tirana, the capital of Albania, in the evening. The day after the rally will reach Athens, the historical capital of Greece, before they make their way over to Mykonos. The Southern Greek island will mark the finish line of this year’s Gumball 3000.
