The Peking to Paris Motor Challenge will begin on Sunday 12th June 2016 as 110 crews cross the start line at the Great Wall of China in Beijing with an 8,500-mile rally ahead of them. Competitors will cross eleven countries including Mongolia’s Gobi Desert, Russia and Belarus before entering Europe to reach the finish line in the centre of Paris on Sunday 17th July.
The overall winners will receive a magnum of Champagne and the prized trophy when they cross the finish line at Place Vendôme. More silverware will be presented at the Gala Prize-Giving Dinner to the various Class winners and those deserving of a coveted ‘special award’ such as Spirit of the Rally and True Grit.
