The Ultimate Mini Adventure?
Take one 18 year old Mini and drive it 9000 miles via 5 mountain ranges and 3 deserts from London to Mongolia.
So why did we do this? Well take a good look over this site to find out,
but in short we fell in love with the idea of the
Mongol Rally, "The Greatest
Adventure in the World". We were one of only 14 cars of 41 starters to make the finish
of the 2005 rally. We covered almost 9000 miles, crossing eight time zones and
thirteen countries, at the same time becoming the first people to ever drive a Mini from
London to Mongolia.
Take a look over our Picture Gallery and read our
'on the road' diary to get a feel of the adventure.
2006 Despite some tempting offers, we did not partake in the 2006
rally but there were more than 10 Minis that did attempt the monumental trip.
One such team of three Mini's that took part in classic red, white and blue Minis in
true Italian Job fashion. Read more at
So what's next? Despite that this was ment to be the trip of a lifetime,
after completing the rally, one just wants more. So for 2006 one half of the Mongol Mini team
will be taking part in the League of Adventurists
latest offering, The Rickshaw Run
