Gumball 3000 Participants Cross Europe’s Longest Bridge and It’s Impressive

Since a member of our teams is reporting live from this year’s Gumball 3000, those who stayed home kind of caught the virus of opulent racing. So here we are now, discussing all sorts of cars the rally is starring, and watching clips shot by the crew. One particular video came to my interest the other day since it’s showing most of the line-up as they are crossing the famous Oresund Bridge.

In case you missed the flag drop moment, we’ll remind you that this year’s Gumball 3000 started in Stockholm, passed through Oslo, Copenhagen and will eventually stop in Amsterdam. Here the European leg will end and the vehicles and drivers will fly over the ocean to continue with the American route.

Today people will be departing Copenhagen, pass through Germany and stop in the Netherlands capital city for a great party held at the famous Amsterdam Arena. As we said, we have one of us reporting live so we’ll leave him to do the job. This is not the reason you are reading the piece, Europe’s longest combined road and rail bridge in Europe is.

The video below shows Gumball 3000 founder Maximillion Cooper leading a convoy of Team Bestsafe’s cars cross the Oresund Bridge to Copenhagen, and we have to admit it’s impressive. The bridge runs nearly 8 kilometers (5 miles) from the Swedish coast to the artificial island of Peberholm, which lies in the middle of the strait. The crossing of the channel is completed by a 4 km (2.5-mile) underwater tunnel, called the Drodgen Tunnel, from Peberholm to the Danish island of Amager.

We’re going to have to wait for our mate to return from his trip and tell us more about it. But if we were to build up a Top 10 bridges to cross with a car in Europe, this sure would be among the first five.
