What started as an idea, lead to the building of a 1965 911, trips to San Diego's back country for testing and a pre-run rally through Canada into Alaska. But let's step back for a second.
Since the early adventurers first drove from Peking to Paris in 1907, "The Endurance Rally Association" has organized three further editions of this remarkable event, trekking through Inner Mongolia, the Gobi Desert, Russia, Ukraine, Slovakia, Austria, Switzerland, and into Paris, France. With this years event they will enter some of the most inaccessible countries and hostile environments in which to drive a car.
