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.

Flying Scotsman Day 3
Three hours later we arrived at Gleneagles on a flatbed transporter courtesy of the RAC. The finishing cars were being piped across the line but our photo was taken with us at the chequered flag on foot and carrying our bags.
Still the idea of the rally was to test us and the car and that we have done. Now for some whisky.
