Applidyne Mechatronics Engineer, Kade Turner has decided to partake in the Mongol Rally which has been described as ‘the greatest motoring adventure on the planet!’ and will be raising funds for charity.
Kade will be participating in the 2018 Mongol Rally which thunders 10,000 miles across the mountains, desert and steppe of Europe finishing in Ulan Ude, Russia. There’s no backup, no support and no set route; just Kade, his fellow Kiwi adventurist Michael and a tiny 2000 Suzuki Wagon R bought for a pittance in the UK.
The rules of the Rally are simple…
- Small & Shit – You can take any car, as long as it’s crap and with an engine of 1 litre or less.
- On Your Own – There will be no on the road backup or support. If you get stuck or in trouble, you need to solve the problem yourself
- Save the World – Raise a minimum of £1000 for charity. £500 of this must go to The Adventurists official charity Cool Earth
Kade’s team called “Yeah Nah” will be travelling to London before making his way to Prague in mid July for the official start of the Rally. They will then make their way over across Europe in 4-6 weeks to Ulan Ude, Russia finishing before the 16th September.
This is where we need your help…Kade and the ‘Yeah Nah’s are embarking on this adventure to raise funds and awareness for Men’s health and the Adventurists official charity Cool Earth. Donations can be made via https://givealittle.co.nz/cause/yeah-nahs-charity-box.
Kade will be strapping on a webcam to share his adventure online (internet connection permitting) and you can follow their trials and tribulations on “Yeah Nah’s” Instagram or Facebook.
