The Ultimate Rally Challenge
World Cup Rally 2012

No previous rally from Europe to Cape Town has kept the wheels turning throughout the length of Africa without recourse to airlifts or shipping over some part of way. The London to Cape Town Rally has a never-rallied-before route and it’s open to anyone who thinks they have what it takes to drive this 8,000 mile adventure.... against the clock.
