The Greatest Adventure in the World!
What happened to the art of map reading, asking for directions and driving two days in the wrong direction?
Once you crossed the start line, you're on your own. Don't even think about crying for help.
No chance of getting there, at least not in the same way you left. This is an adventure and it will change lifes forever.
The Mongol Rally thunders 10,000 miles across the mountains, desert and steppe of Europe and Asia each summer. There’s no backup, no support and no set route; just you, your fellow adventurists and a tiny car you bought from a scrapyard for £11.50.
If nothing goes wrong, everything has gone wrong.
Bollocks to tarmac, ABS and gadgets that help you find your navel. The Mongol Rally is about getting lost, using your long neglected wits, raising shedloads of cash for charity and scraping into the finish line with your vehicle in tatters and a wild grin smeared across your grubby face.
There are only a few rules:
Neither your car, nor your life, will ever be the same again.
Currently living in the San Francisco Bay Area, his 6th city and 4th country in the past 15 years. He traveled to over 100 places in 20 different countries and still feels this is just a blip on all there is to see in this world.
Lives in Nova Petrópolis, a small german town in south Brazil. Is the founder of Nordweg, a brand of genuine leather backpacks, loves traveling, languages and technology.
10.000 miles. 17 countries. 5 mountain ranges. 3 deserts. 1/3 of the world.
We will be driving through
England, Belgium, Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Russia and hopefully Mongolia.
A Mongol Rally car should be 1000cc, ideally less.
For the semi-impossible task of getting us to Mongolia, we chose nothing less than the indestructibe K11 Nissan Micra.
This little beast boasts an incredible 998cc engine with peak 59bhp (25bhp at 15.000ft), a windshield and 5 fabric seats of pure luxury.
Our beloved car still lacks some "personal touch", but we will get to that real soon!
