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.

Training Day

Back in October we put ourselves on Owen Turner's training day for P2P. We met Owen on the Alpine Trial and he is one of the Sweep Crew on P2P.

He ran a brilliant one day course on rally skills and preparation and we learnt a lot.  Next step is to bring the car down to his workshop in St Albans so that we can be shown how to fix it ourselves....

I forgot to take any photographs of Owen but when I googled his name and company this picture of Mr Spock came up. Fascinating.
