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.

A Little Competition

Car 22 is  a 1935 Alvis Silver Eagle Sport driven by Richard Bowser(GB) and Paul Rivlin(GB).

As it happens the person who sits opposite me in the office is Paul Rivlin.  For the moment it's all friendly but when we get to Mongolia - the gloves are coming off.

  1. Wooster: What is it, Jeeves?
    Jeeves: The speedometer indicates that we are travelling in excess of 90 miles per hour!
    Wooster: Good lord! Is that all?

    I wonder what the others in your office think about this adventure. Have they opened a book?
