If you like a real road trip, you might enjoy browsing through the Endurance Rally Association’s (ERA) web page.
This company manages international rallies such as The Flying Scotsman, The Alpine Trial, The Classic Safari and then one of the longest rallies in world, the Peking to Paris event.
On June 12, the sixth Peking to Paris event will commence, when 110 crews will cross the start line at the Great Wall of China in Beijing, with no less than 13 700 km of rallying ahead of them.
In total, competitors will cross 11 countries (including Mongolia’s Gobi desert), before finally – and hopefully – crossing the finish line in Paris on July 17.
This year marks the highest number of participants to date. There will be 50 cars taking part in the pre-1942 class, and 60 in the pre-1977 class.
Endurance Rally Association Rally Director Fred Gallagher said: “The entry list features over 30 different automotive manufacturers and competitors representing 24 different countries. This is a truly global event that challenges both car and crew to the limit”.
