I cut and pasted some things that I felt very vaguely answered your questions. These aren't necessarily very clear cut at all. I think maybe some more detailed rules might be helpful, as I'd hate to see either a contestant OR gixxer.com get into any sort of trouble over it.

#1 The rules do not state what happens to your money that you paid for tickets if they do not sell all 1,000 of them. (And I'll bet it takes more than a year to sell them all, if that is even possible).
According to the rules: In the unlikely event that all 1000 raffle tickets are not sold, the prize amounts will be adjusted to reflect ticket sales. All entries become the property of Gixxer.com.
I interpret this as they keep your money and make adjustments to the prizes, according to the amount of money generated.
#2 The rules do not state what happens if an overseas winner wins any of the prizes. (Contest laws are different for different contries)
According to the rules: The Raffle is open to anyone worldwide who is 18 years or older, except, void wherever prohibited or restricted by law.
Taxes, import duties any registration expense, if any, related to the prizes are the responsibility of the individual winner. If the delivery of the prize to the winner's country is not possible due to force majeure, such as act of war or is illegal, then Gixxer.com may award a cash prize instead to the winner.
#3 Who is doing the accounting and drawing for the prizes? And how can I be sure that gixxer.com will not just draw a friend / family member as the winner(s)?
According to the rules: Employees of Gixxer.com and their families are not eligible to win.
This doesn't say who is doing the accounting and/or drawing for the prizes, but it does cover the family members.
As it is so vague, I'm not sure it will really take off like they want it to, but I certainly have nothing against gixxer.com and wish them all the best with their raffle.
