Host Bobby Tonelli and guest mentors, professional race drivers Gaby dela Merced and Michele Bumgarner, are back to steer the stars along their individual clashes and eight-week journey. Viewers can expect more madcap motoring mayhem and extreme challenges including an all-new perilous construction site obstacle course, an epic drag race down WCC’s Binalonan Airfield, and an amusing battle to pimp out a wreck.
Other challenges from previous seasons have been brought back by popular demand, including a Jeepney race, reverse racing, and an insanely tough off-road 4X4 ride along Pampanga’s Sacobia River. Celebrities will also face the dreaded brick wall, which returns to test their gumption yet again.
To amp things up, the third season of Celebrity Car Wars also sees past contenders Marc Nelson and Phomela Baranda return to the tracks for the series’ famous drag race, and Dominic Lau makes a special appearance to guest-referee the car-football challenge. This season also introduce a live leaderboard to allow contenders to track each other’s scores.
Who will join previous champions KC Montero and Dominic Lau and be enshrined in the Celebrity Car Wars Hall of Fame, and who will crash out of the competition?
