It would be the Cannonball World Events who would be bringing such a grand auto activity to the continent. Cannonball World Events is a company which is based in London. It is run by Tim “Maverick” Porter, the managing director for the Cannonball Run World Events, and is also one of the automobile world’s popular icons for he is known as a car aficionado and a really grand driver. In fact, he has already gained great popularity throughout the European continent where he is known as a really infamous bad boy when it comes to driving.
Porter emphasizes, “Safety is paramount to this event and in the previous six years and eight major events held in Europe we have never had a serious accident and we believe this is due to the way we police our own event with very strict rules. Drivers must complete the course with an average speed at or below the national speed limit rather than racing to be the first car to arrive.” As per the event, he even further adds, “This event is based on the success of our Cannonball Run Europe events which embody the spirit of the original US Cannonball Run event and the 1981 movie.”
