We are ‘MONGOL MADNESS’ and we’re soon to embark on a 20,000km journey from London to Mongolia in nothing more than a tiny 1 litre Suzuki Alto.
That’s right, this slightly ridiculous journey crossing a multitude of countries that most people haven’t heard of, let alone want to set foot in is all in the aid of charity!
Starting from London on the 24th July 2010 we plan to arrive in Ulaan Baatar on the 22nd August while raising money for a great charity called; Christina Noble Children’s Foundation Limited. (www.cncf.org)
3 guys, piloting 1000cc’s of raw power will cross 20 odd countries, the likes of which include Iran, Russia, Uzbekistan, and Borat’s famous homeland, Kazakhstan. If that’s not enough there are 3 deserts and 5 mountain ranges trying to stop us from reaching the finish line in what most grannies would use to go to the shop and back!
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank the team at Triviala for giving us a substantial contribution towards our trip and charity. It has really made our job easier by getting behind us and our charity. We hope to send through the few updates and photos along the way to share our experiences.

We hope all of you will keep popping back to follow our progress on what I’m sure will be a mishap fuelled adventure.
Below are a few pics of us getting the car ready for launch this Saturday.
