SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Apr 15, 2013) - Today, Contour Inc. -- maker of the world's easiest-to-use action HD video cameras -- becomes the exclusive action camera sponsor of the 15th Annual Gumball 3000. Taking place throughout Europe this May, the Gumball 3000 combines cars, luxury, music, and fashion with a list of celebrity participants, making it one of the most elite rally events in the world.

"Being a part of the Gumball 3000 is an incredible and unique experience for Contour," said Scott Ketchum, vice president of marketing at Contour. "This event gives us an opportunity to 'take the show on the road,' introducing the Contour brand and products to a broader set of action sport enthusiasts, adventure travelers, and local residents throughout Europe."

As the official action camera sponsor, Contour will follow the rally from city to city, documenting everything from Ferraris and cityscapes, to parties and celebrities. Additionally, each rally car will display a Contour logo and come equipped with a Contour+2 and private tech support team.
