The 20th edition of the 4,828km international celebrity rally will begin in London and end in Tokyo on August 12.


The 2018 edition of the Gumball 3000 rally is expected to see 100 exclusively selected cars participate in the annual celebrity rally, scheduled to take place from August 4 to August 12. The cars will traverse a 3,000-mile (4,828km) route on public roads, starting in London and goes all the way to Tokyo.

Going beyond the luxury automotive tour, the rally stops at famous landmarks in each city, where some of the rarest and most exclusive cars are displayed, along with stunts and performances by petrolheads and music artists. Having morphed into a week-long festival of sorts, the Gumball 3000 sees live music concerts, action sports and spectacular car shows hosted in capital cities. Celebrity attendees include the likes of David Hasselhoff, Snoop Dogg, EVE, Travis Barker, Xzibit, Adrien Brody, Tyson Beckford, David Guetta, deadmau5, Michael Madsen, Daryl Hannah, Steve Aoki, Tony Hawk and Dennis Rodman.

This year, Pradeep Jolly, and his wife Sugandh Jolly, will participate in this year’s edition of the Gumball 3000 in a Nissan GT-R.
