The Mission

The Peking to Paris Rally is a recreation of the 1907 challenge issued by Le Matin, "Is there anyone who will undertake to travel this summer from Peking to Paris by automobile?"
The 2016 version will follow a route of 13,695 Km (8,510 miles) and take 35 days. We are travelling in Rhubarb and Custard, a 1936 Buick. We know nothing about cars or rallying.

We're In!

We received an email from the Rally organisers telling us that 70 out of 100 places had now been filled on the Rally and that no more places were available for post 1945 cars.  We decided that we had better get our own entry in fast and so we've sent off our form and money. Gulp.
