After finding out about the Mongol Rally in the later part of 2014; myself, Mitchell and Smithy spent over a year preparing for their first large scale adventure. In July 2015 The Top Hat Explorers set off on the an epic journey across a third of the planet, through countries such as Iran, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Russia and of course Mongolia.
If you have heard of the Mongol Rally before you will know of the ridiculous level of car that your allowed to bring. Effectively you have to bring a car under 1.2L in engine size and it should be under £500. The team went for a 20 year old Nissan Micra costing £250, an absolute bargain. There was one small issue though there where no keys…
Words cannot describe now good this trip was. We are currently working towards a featured piece about the Mongol Rally.
