The 2018 Launch
This year, we're moving the launch location from the UK to a top-secret location around 30 minutes west of Prague in the Czech Republic. We've secured a launch venue so astounding it's going to take you a very long time to gather together all the bits of your brain. The launch is evolving into something grotesquely and almost inconceivably incredible. A two-day festival of the the macabre. It'll be like Mad Max on steroids, like a carnival float that's crashed into a zombie infested hospital. Does that make sense? Of course it doesn't.
2019 Launch info to follow.
The Finish - Ulan Ude
In 2015 we moved the finish line about 500km north to the Siberian town of Ulan Ude.
Why? because we worked out it would save you about £1000 per team on shipping your car home.
You’ll still drag and cajole your sorry carcass of a car across the dusty Mongolian steppe and vomit Chinggis Gold through your nose after a heavy session with some friendly nomads.
The only difference is that the Finish Line is in the Siberian town of Ulan-Ude, 400 miles due north of Ulaanbaatar.
