Walero ambassador and MINI UK brand ambassador Harry Hunt heads to Moscow this weekend for the start of this year’s colossal Silk Way Rally.
Covering 10,735 kilometres (over 6670 miles), Harry will traverse almost a quarter of the earth’s circumference in just 16 days, starting in Moscow on the 8th July and finishing in Beijing on the 24th July.
Harry will be tackling some of the most diverse terrains in rallying, not only in surface but also in altitude, with some stages taking place 2.5k metres above sea level, adding another dimension to the challenge.
Despite being arguably synonymous to the Dakar in its extremity, there is always an element of unpredictability to every race, and Harry is no stranger to the unexpected. The Silk Way plays a pivotal role in the run-up to Dakar 2017, leaving Hunt ready to make the most of whatever comes his way.
We’d like to wish the best of luck to Harry as he starts the 2016 Silk Way Rally!
