Some people at work are going on a race from London to Ulaan Baatar. Which is in Mongolia. The race is called the Mongol Rally. The rules are very simple:
1. You can only use a car with an engine of less than 1 litre, that is generally considered to be crap.
2.You need to raise £1000 per car for charity by whatever means you see fit.
3.You are responsible for yourself.
Other than these you are free to sneak, bribe, cheat, connive and generally out-wit the world to get yourselves to Ulaan Baatar. In fact you will probably have to.
Now... I have a car that has a 1 litre engine, and there's no question my L reg Micra is crap.
Maybe not this summer, but next summer this little trip might be an option. Mr K, I'm thinking that you would be a great co-pilot.
