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.

The Route is Published

The organisers have published the P to P Rally route today. There are some big daily drives of over 600km.  I haven't had a chance to follow the route on the Atlas yet but it looks daunting.

In other news the car has been fixed and is ready to be shipped to Annecy for the Alpine Challenge.
