The 11th edition of the annual Mongol Rally launches this weekend from Battersea Park - and this year, there are 53 Australians participating as well as eight Aussie teams.
800 amateur adventurers will be setting off on a 10,000 mile adventure to Mongolia in the world’s biggest and most outrageous charity rally.
The mass departure kicks off on Saturday morning, followed by a parade through central London. The intrepid teams teams will then then wobble south to the English Channel, turn left and drive through 15 countries to Mongolia.
Here's the catch - the cars are all tiny and intentionally unsuitable, with very small engines. There’s no set route, no backup of any kind and every team needs to raise at least £1,000 for charity.
Most people will take between four and six weeks to reach Mongolia, but around a third of teams won't make it all the way to the finish line. Let's hope all the Aussies have what it takes to reach their destination - don't let us down, kids!
