Yesterday marked that time of year again, and CoPilot kindly invited us along to London's Pall Mall to see the start of this year's Gumball 3000 Rally.

The cars this year will be travelling from London to Istanbul and back in just eight days. They'll be traveling through 17 different countries along their way including two different continents.

Of course, the Gumball wouldn't be without its celebrity drivers and the line up this year included Pimp My Ride's Xzibit, Jamiroquai's Jay Kay, Star Wars' Hayden Christensen, The Business' Danny Dyer and Tamer Hassan to name just a few.

ALK Technologies are again a headline sponsor and kitted out the cars with their CoPilot GPS software which is handily loaded with the route, and we assume, the location of speed cameras along the way. You can track the progress of the rally over at ALK's TrackTheGumball.com.

As usual, tell us what you think over in the forums... but before that, enjoy just some of the eye candy that we managed to shoot for you.

UPDATE: It seems that Xzibit has already had his driving license confiscated for speeding!
