WHAT IS THE RALLY?

The Mongol Rally is a 10,000-mile transcontinental excursion from London, UK to Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, with a final gathering in Ulan-Ude, Russia. 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. Mechanical failures and challenges on the road are a constant as miniature cars' suspensions are put through miles of abuse and pothole ridden highways. Some might label the rally as reckless (or just downright idiotic), but we and the founders 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!
