Thinking of following in your foot steps. Hi Jim — Most things were divided between the team, but the prices I listed here were my share. Hope you enjoy the rally!! I would like to give it ago to be honest….
You can find some cheap cars still in very good shape. They might be hard to find, but not impossible. So I see your car broke down an you hitched a ride with other people to the finish line. What happened to your car after it was lifted onto the truck? Also I am from America an would be buying a car in England, can I sale it in Mongolia then fly back home?
Our car was impounded by the police so they would write it off and allow us to leave the country.
How Do You Survive the Mongol Rally?
Selling the car in Mongolia could be a bit of a pain in the ass as you will have to pay import taxes and take care of the selling. Since the year after I did it cars are no longer imported into Mongolia.
We plan to arrive there around 20 Aug We booked a freight contained that is large enough for 2 cars. Hence, if you need to transport your car back to Europe and are willing to share the costs, please let me know.

Each team is required to use a car that is less than 10 years old and has an engine size of one liter or less about 1. The exception to these rules is if the team uses an emergency or public service vehicle. This includes police cars, fire engines, road sweepers, cherry pickers and, to the interest of OZNOG racing, ambulances.
While on the race, teams are encouraged to record their journey. We will also be updating our journey on Twitter each day. The Mongol Rally website makes it clear that this race is highly dangerous. You cannot underestimate the risks involved in undertaking this kind of adventure.
