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.

Fuel tank

Lots of crews have had severe problems with their fuel tanks. They have aluminium tanks welded at the edges and the welds have given way on the punishing roads.

You are supposed to carry a packet of Starburst sweets to patch a leaking fuel tank. No one has ever asked me for a starburst so I've started to eat them.
