The Mongol Rally is a 10,000-mile transcontinental excursion from London, UK to Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia – before finally arriving in Ulan-Ude, Russia. For years the original finish line was in Mongolia, but alas after 15 years they got a little tired of westerners arriving in cars that used to be fully functional but have since been driven across some of the harshest terrain on the planet . While the event is not actually a race – in fact, the first teams to roll into the finish line are often scolded for their haste – the rally is by no means a walk in the park. Many don’t make it due to mechanical failure, because after all there’s only so much abuse a tiny vehicle’s suspension can take. From everything we’ve read some countries have figured out how to make roads entirely out of potholes. Some might label us reckless (or just downright idiotic), but we firmly believe that the world is not as dangerous as we’re lead to believe here in the States. So why not see some of it that we might not otherwise, and do it in a ridiculous way.
