The Mongol Rally is a non-competitive charity car race starting on July 18, 2020 in Winchester, UK. Drivers have approximately 45 days to complete it. The final destination, after 18,000km of driving, is Ulan Ude , Siberia. Participants will be able to choose any route to reach the destination and will have only a few simple rules to respect: donate at least £1000 to charity, the car must be older than 10 years and with a maximum 1200cc and GPS and highways are forbidden. Our team, eager to participate, will have 6 months to search for sponsors, retrieve documents and visas, define a route that will cross over 20 different countries and, above all, obtain an appropriate vehicle.
The Mongol Rally was born in 2004 as a charity race: its goal is to "save the world", therefore it asks each participating team to offer a minimum of £1000 to be devited between the COOL EARTH association and a charity association of your choice (Mongol Rally Guide). All the funds that we will collect in addition, excluding travel expenses, will be donated to a local association from Treviso which will be chosen in the coming months.
Cool Earth is an association that struggles to protect indigenous villages from the destruction of rain forests.
All funds raised are destined and managed directly by the indigenous peoples: by developing local livelihoods, the goal is to end the deforestation cycle by creating strong and free communities.
