Cannonball 2000 making Dreams Come True
Cannonball 2000 is a five-day road trip billed as ‘the motoring lifestyle event of 2012’ and living up to its strapline, it has already attracted an impressive line-up of vehicle entries. Ranging from the rare to the exotic with entries such as a DeLorean DMC 12 (film fans will recognise from Back to the Future films) and a Lamborghini Gallardo LP570 Performante, the Cannonball 2000 is guaranteed to turn heads on its route across Europe.
From the official formation grid start at the London Hilton Park Lane Hotel on 5th September, the Cannonball 2000 is the ultimate lifestyle event - combining the exhilaration and thrills of a driving event with the very best clubs, bars, hotels and restaurants in each destination.
The event has secured sponsorship deals with well-known consumer brands, exclusive bars and lifestyle products such as Brand Hatton, Amika Mayfair, Rock Star energy drink, Bobby White London and Muc Off.
The inaugural event has attracted Cannonballers from all walks of life and corners of the globe, including TV personalities and a former world boxing champion. The 2012 event is already fully sold out, but with 2013’s event planned to be longer, more daring and more spectacular, places are likely to fill fast. For more details visit www.cannonball2000.com
