On 28 May 2013, the flag will fall at the start of the next Peking to Paris Motor Challenge... it will be the start of a remarkable adventure... the chance to explore your powers of resolve and the extent of your human spirit. Ahead will be thirty-three days of living an extraordinary adventure driving through some of the remotest places on earth.
The 2010 event blazed a pioneering route thorough some of the most inaccessible countries in the world, where no classic-car had gone before. The 2010 event was hailed as one of the most ambitious and best organised historic rallies of all time. Follow the menu links to find our web pages from our earlier Peking to Paris events.
An amazing bunch of rescue mechanics - the fact so many cars are lining up in Paris with so many happy crews after a drive half way round the world is all down to the back-up on this event, producing daily miracles, the real heroes of a fantastic event."
