The Beijing to Paris Rally

Hosted by

The Peking to Paris auto rally started in 1907, before English speakers learned to say "Beijing." It's 10,000 miles from the Great Wall through the Gobi Desert, Mongolia, Russia and Ukraine, over mountain passes in Slovakia and Austria, and finally to Paris.  One driver and one navigator have 30 days to make it — in a vintage car. This year's rally is scheduled to begin on May 28 and end on the last day of June. Garrick Staples is a computer systems administrator who will be driving a 1969 Volkswagen Beetle.  Stanley Gold, president of Shamrock Holdings, will pilot a 1965 Porsche 911.
