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.

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.
