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.

Flying Scotsman 2015

I've only just got these pictures from Gerard Brown of the Flying Scotsman - they are his copyright so please don't pinch them. They were taken before our gearbox failure led to a broken half shaft and the rear wheel falling off on day three.

  1. Hi guys!
    Accidentally found your blog.
    Several years ago,as you may know,in 2007, there was a 100th anniversary of Peking - Paris rally.Did you take part in this event? Our city - Yekaterinburg(Russia) was selected as a place for rest day. We had a chance to chat with the drivers,take lots of photos and see them drive to the next stage. I decided to make a recap of this day in my blog.Check it out if you have some spare time.
    I also have read on the Endurance Rally Association that our city is on the route,so we will gladly come and cheer you guys!
