The Mongol Rally 2006
In 2001, two students, Tom Morgan and Julian Ingram, from the United Kingdom had the amazingly ridiculous idea to drive from Prague to Mongolia in their dilapidated Fiat 126. A mere five years later, this fateful adventure has grown into the Mongol Rally, billed as the “greatest adventure in the world.”
The basic challenge of this race is to drive a car with an engine smaller than one litre, from the east end of London to the east end of the world: Mongolia. The rally has no entourage of support vehicles, there is no carefully marked course, there are no professional drivers, fast cars, or even good cars.
