It was a gruelling adventure and an epic challenge. On the face of it, all we had to do was get from London to Mongolia. But looking deeper it was going to be a lot less simple than it had first... More > appeared. We had minimal planning, bought a horribly underpowered car that was fit for scrap, had no external support, no prior expedition experience or survival knowledge and decided to do it all in the name of charity. We only allowed ourselves three weeks to complete the adventure. I hadn’t even heard of half of the countries we were intending to cross and certainly didn’t speak the languages but we’d go for it anyway and see how things turned out. It couldn’t be that hard after all. Here’s my account of how it happened, what we came across, the scrapes we got into and how we got out of them and a selection of the numerous photos I took on the 9,592 miles to Mongolia. Some experiences defied belief, some were mildly terrifying but there are none that I will ever forget.< Less

Three island boys from the Isles of Scilly take on one of the last great challenges of the world - The Mongol Rally; a 10,000 mile journey from the UK to Mongolia without any support team or... More > assistance - all for charity. Through 15 countries, Team Scilly Mission are faced with extraordinary challenges; corrupt police, chased by armed riders, impounded at a border for days, driving through a 46c heatwave, crossing through rivers and overcoming breakdowns hundreds of miles from civilization.

More > primavera de 2009, cuando Marc comentó que había visto por televisión una especie de rally de coches de baja cilindrada entre Europa y Mongolia. Una carrera de autos locos actualizada.

Sin hablar mucho sobre ello, porque ambos sabíamos que no había espacio para plantearse muchas cosas o de lo contrario todo se iría al traste. Así fue como reservamos plaza en este rocambolesco rally el verano de 2010. Sin pensarlo dos veces. Ya no había marcha atrás.< Less
