LONDON — Olympic ski champion Bode Miller and NFL star Reggie Bush were among the stars who sped out of central London Thursday for the 12th edition of the Gumball 3000 Rally, a seven-day car race stretching across 10 European countries.

Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, Indianapolis Colts linebacker Cody Glenn and Buffalo Bills outside linebacker Shawne Merriman were other NFL players embarking on the 3,000-mile trip across the continent alongside celebrities from TV, music and entertainment.

A total of 120 cars, ranging from Ferraris to Lamborghinis and Bentleys, will roll through Paris, Barcelona, Monte Carlo, Venice, Belgrade and Sofia before crossing the line in Istanbul on June 1. There will be parties aplenty en route.
