The Mongol Rally 

The Mongol Rally 2008 embarks again on July 19th 2008 . Now in its fifth year, there are starting points at London in the UK, Spain and Italy.

So what is the Mongol Rally? It seems to be a grand adventure, whereby the organisers have persuaded a bunch of self-certified muppits to travel a third of the way around the world to the Mongolian capital Ulaanbaatar via routes of their own choosing, through a host of countries that most people will not have heard of, in any performance-challanged car that has an engine size less than 1000 cc. Rumours abound that some entrants in the first Mongol Rally are still on route to the finish line.

But the Mongol Rally isn't only about adventure and mayhem, competitors do raise huge sacks of cash for some great charities. So if you should see a beat up old car heading for Mongolia, stop and give them a push, and perhaps a little cash for their chosen charity.
