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.

Richard & Pike

What’s this, what’s this? iMac eh, sounds like Big Mac so probably good to eat, let’s have a go.  Yes, yes it is good to eat.  No, no it isn’t . Ooh look pretty red and yellow car ….. with Dad!  Dad, Dad, Dad! But he’s very small and who is that with him - Stranger Danger - Woof, Woof Woof.  Hmm better stop that, makes you hungry - I am hungry.  Hungry, hungry, hungry. iMac - they are good to eat, yum yum.  No, they are not good to eat.  Where’s Dad?  He will feed me.  He will feed me in The Holybush.  Dad will have Beer, Pike will have beer.  Pub has food, Pike will have food. Nice lady in the corner has food on plate, Pike has nice lady’s food on plate. Nice lady laughs, Dad laughs.  Dad is kind, Dad is good. Dad would never leave Pike. No, Never. Not to go on a stupid bloody Rally with his stupid bloody mate across stupid bloody Mongolia. For a month. This is a dog’s life this is.
