HarperCollins: HarperCollins Publishers, 2005. The fascinating story of the ultimate road trip and the people who made it. In 1907 an extraordinary challenge to test man and machine against nature, distance and fate took place. There were no roads and no maps, but eleven men in five cars farewelled Peking to drive 10 000 miles to Paris in the greatest motoring event of all time. Their amazing feat was not forgotten. A century later, award&ndash;winning cartoonist, writer and TV personality Warren Brown and renowned adventurer Lang Kidby concocted a grand scheme: to re&ndash;create the original 1907 Peking to Paris Raid in the original makes of veteran cars. They searched the world to find an Itala, a Spyker, two De Dion Boutons and a Contal. In May 2005 they, together with motoring journalist Mick Matheson and several other adventurers, set off from Beijing to drive along the original route, through China and Mongolia, across the vast expanse of Russia and into Europe. They were accompanied by an ABC TV crew and by acclaimed photographer Bob Barker. The Great Peking to Paris Expedition provides comprehensive historical material on the 1907 Raid, but above all it is an engrossing record of the remarkable modern&ndash;day expedition, comprising Warren's and Mick's fascinating, often hilarious and always compelling diary entries, and Bob's breathtaking photographs. The Great Peking to Paris Expedition will ignite the imaginations of veteran car enthusiasts, travel buffs and armchair travellers alike. The book ties in with ABC TV's documentary, to be scree<p>.
