This weeks see’s the start of one of the most famous and glitzy races in the world, the Gumball 3000 Rally. Ok in theory I am not allowed to call it a race, but hey ho, I just did! Featuring some of the biggest celebrities the world has to offer the Gumball 3000 Rally takes to it’s 13th year this Thursday with the start in our very own London.

2011 will see 120 eye watering cars and 300 participants line up on the 26th May, ready for the 6 day, 3000 journey across Europe to the finish line (and party!!) in Istanbul next Wednesday. Celebs lining up include David ‘The Hoff’ Hasslehoff, EVE, Football Factory’s Tamer Hassan, Boyzone’s Shane Lynch, French footballer Djibril Cissé, NFL legend
Reggie Bush, the notorious Dirty Sanchez and The Dudesons who will all be kitted out in the new limited edition Puma ‘Gumball 3000 Edition’ driving shoes and specially designed Gumball 300 Nixon watches!

And the cars? Well they are really just the who’s who of super car royalty including a whole bunch of Zonda’s, the latest Aston Martin One – 77, Bugatti Veyron, a sprinkling of some of the most sought after Ferrari’s, Lambo’s, Rolls Royce’s and Bentley’s.

The rally it’s self will head from London to Paris and then on to the amazing Barcelona seafront / quay (which I can assure you is pretty special!). You will then find the rally at the Monaco Grand Prix all weekend for the F1. It’s then off to Venice, Zagreb, Belgrade, Sofia before finally finishing in Turkey and its mighty Istanbul, on the evening Wednesday 1st June, and a huge closing party on the banks of the Bosphorus!

Now if you are in London, do head down on Thursday morning and early afternoon for the show. All entertainment is free and you will get to see the cars and see the celebs before they start their rally at 3pm GMT. And if you are entering yourself, you might need some car insurance uk!

You will be able to follow the rally on the official Gumball 3000 Twitter and Facebook pages and we will keep you updated as well!
