We are the Destined to Flail Rally team and we'll be one of the 400 teams entering this year's Rally going from London to Ulan-Ude in Russia. But with an added twist, we'll be attempting to set the Rally record for the most countries visited along the way. It's going to be just four people from around the globe huddled together in a little FIAT Panda with 23,000 km of roads, mountains, deserts and disasters ahead of us.
This ridiculous route will take us through 42 countries and every possible landscape you can imagine.
We'll be all alone doing this, but we'll be keeping you all updated through our Facebook page and many an Instagram post.
If you're interested in sponsoring our journey, please don't hesitate to get in contact as the benefits are pretty decent: [email redacted]
This adventure isn't just about exploring countries we've never heard of or getting lost in the deserts of Mongolia, its about giving back. We'll be raising money for a few charities and therefore we need you good people to help us achieve our goals. We'll be working with three charities all aimed at making the world a better, brighter place for generations to come.
This is where you come in.
We want you to be a part of both our adventure and our giving back to the world. On the right you'll find a number of fun deeds, gifts and challenges that we're offering to you to help us on our way. Want some pictures from our trip? Want to see us jump off a 25 metre high UNESCO heritage bridge? Want a gift from a country you're not even sure is real? Then purchase one of the options seen below our charities and wait by the door. We promise we've got something for everybody.
A non-profit who works diligently on saving our rainforests and the communities in and around them. They don't create reserves or put up fences, they put the the control of the forest in the hands of the people who care about it most, its inhabitants. Cool Earth aims to create strong, self-determining indigenous communities with the goal of ending the cycle of deforestation.
McGrath Foundation and Macmillan Cancer Support
We've also chosen The McGrath Foundation and Macmillan Cancer Support; two amazing charities who provide nurses and care for cancer patients and their families. These two charities aim to provide physical, psychological and emotional support to those who need it most from day 1 for as long as they need it. We're proud to be helping these two amazing charities in achieving their goals.
We've been tasked with raising £1000 for our charities, however, because there is a lot that goes into getting us from A to B, we've added in the option of challenges or gifts that we can complete or offer, that will help us complete our journey.

Rewards and Challenges
$10 Cheers to You!
We want to say thank you for helping us on our way, and what better way to say that than to raise a glass in your honour at one of the many world famous landmarks we see. We'll also give you a nice picture and shoutout on our official Instagram of us enjoying our bevies.
$15 I Want My Money Back
You give to us and we'll right back to you. We all know sharing is caring so we'll send you a postcard from along the way attached with some cold hard cash from a country you've probably never heard of.
$20 Your Name On Our Car
We're expecting to form an unhealthy bond with this noble stead as we criss-cross Europe and Central Asia. But even though you might not be able to join us - we'd still like you to be a part of our car in some way. We will etch whatever your name is, or even a phrase. We can do it by permanent marker, spray paint or literally carve it into the paint, the choice is yours.
$25 Trinkets from the Trail
We'd love to pick you up something nice from one of the 40 countries we'll be visiting. From Western Europe all along the Silk Road we'll be on the lookout for the perfect gift to say thank you. This is a real mystery prize, it could be anything we find that peaks our interest. Nazar Boncugu? Bilezek? Čokanjče? What are these things you ask? Well why don't you find out.
$40 Disposable Camera From Rally
We will be travelling through some of the most beautiful, diverse, stunning and desolate places in the world. Some people might not ever get the chance to visit some of these countries but we're happy to make you feel like you were there. We'll be snapping away with plenty of disposable cameras and we'll be happy to make one specially for you.
$48 48 Hours of Suits
For your amusement we'll don a suit for 48 hours straight. Thats right, we'll eat, sleep and party all in a suit, and we'll be sure to document the antics for you. We have a nice selection of suits that you could have us wear from bright purple, silver or even a stylish black and white. This could be at festivals, hikes in Norway, the deserts of Uzbekistan... The possibilities are endless.
$50 Ride With Us In A Special Way
Now this one is a little cheeky. You might want to go beyond having your name on our car and want to really be there with us. So what we'll do is print off a picture of your face and slap it on a doll of ours and take you different places on our adventure. We'll take plenty of pictures and send them on over so you can kind of say you did the Mongol Rally in 2018.
$60 Give us a Challenge
We know this is going to quite the challenge, but we want even more obstacles in the way. Pick from the list, or think up something of your own. - Mostar Bridge Jump - Run across a Country - GOT Walk of Shame - Handstand on Trolltunga - Pull our car 100m - Mongolian Oil Wrestling Challenge Us!
$75 Coffee Table Book
We'll be going to some of the most amazing places in the world and we've been known to take the odd photo or two. We'll be picking the best ones and making a nice book filled with all our epic moments and stories. The perfect addition to your coffee table.
Let us know which of these you'd like to purchase and get something nice while supporting a great cause!
