Last summer I took part in the Mongol Rally; an overland journey with a difference. Travelling from the UK, through the remote and unreported lands of Central Asia, to Mongolia would be hard enough even without the rule that vehicles must have a sub 1.2 litre engine. With a car better suited for the weekly supermarket trip rather than a six week, trans-continental, partly off-road journey, many teams naturally don’t make it to the finish line in Ulaanbaatar. Nothing, from the overall goal to daily plans, is ever guaranteed and it is this unpredictability that makes the Mongol Rally one of the most unique adventures that’s easily accessible to most travellers.
