The Mongol Rally isn't about comfort and it doesn't have a great deal to do with style, what we seek is adventure. The whole point is that it's difficult. Hence the one litre rule was born. To tackle the worst roads in the world you you need a chariot with an engine size of under 1 litre (ish). There is nothing like staring down the bonnet of a Nissan Micra at hundreds of miles of dirt track and foot-high rocks. For the Mongol Rally 2013 your car must be registered on or after 1 January 2004.
You can also ride motorbikes. Of course we suggest a throbbing heart of up to 125cc, though a 50cc scooter is perfect at slightly less powerful than a lawnmower. If your bike is bigger than this and you’re still itching to get it stuck across 10,000 miles of the earth’s toughest terrain next summer, then we’d be most happy to hear from you and to listen to your case for bringing a marginally larger engine... There is no age restriction on two-wheelers.
