What the heck is the Mongol Rally?

They say that it is the greatest motoring adventure on the planet.

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 1000cc car you bought from a scrapyard.  https://www.theadventurists.com/mongol-rally/

The rules are simple…

1. You can only take a farcically small vehicle of 1 litre that is at least 10 years old
2. You’re completely on your own
3. You’ve got to raise $$ for charity

** 100 % of every dollar donated will go to the Education Foundation of Ottawa **
