3 boys and an £800 van...From London to Mongolia...2 months on the road...21 countries...21 trees planted...4 deserts and 7 mountain ranges...Van decorated by local artists...Unique stories of climate change...One epic adventure
One of the consequences of undertaking road safety audits throughout the UK is that our Audit Teams do a lot of driving in a year. But few auditors would ever consider driving to Mongolia as part of the official Mongol Rally.
The drive, which is 10,000 miles in length, takes the 400 teams that take part through western Europe and into Turkey, Iran, through Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan on the “Silk Road” made famous centuries ago by Marco Polo, along the Afghan border in Tajikistan, and ultimately to their destination in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. The purpose of the rally is to raise money for Cool Earth, the charity that works alongside indigenous villages to halt rainforest destruction.
This year TMS has a special interest in the rally as Director Steve Proctor’s son Matt is taking part in team Britain’s Next Top Mongol. TMS is sponsoring their team as they travel the 10,000 mile journey across Europe and Asia. Watch out on this site for photo updates as they make their slow and steady progress on their epic travels!
