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 More Competition

Car 68 is a 1968 (how did they do that?) Mustang owned by Peter Weigelt and Beat Hirs from Switzerland.

These nut jobs ran a Rolls Royce Silver Ghost on the 2015 Alpine Trial - how it went around the hairpins I do not know.  From memory I think they did pretty well.

Here's a photo of the Mustang and below one of the Ghost standing next to Rhubarb and Custard.
