Mongol Rally 2018

A Micra on a mission

Between July and October 2018 we took Nugget, a 21 year old, golden Nissan Micra all the way from Tunbridge Wells to Mongolia… and back! Finally, after 10 years of talking about it, we were doing the 2018 Mongol Rally!

The Slow Search Engine

When we signed up to do the Mongol Rally, we agreed to raise at least £1000 for charity. We wanted to do things a bit differently, and so gave ourselves a challenge. 

Nugget the Micra rolled off the factory line the same month that Larry Page and Sergey Brin registered the domain “www.google.com“. Today it seems almost impossible to imagine life without Google, but that’s exactly what we were going to try to experience. 

We asked people what questions they had about the countries we’d be visiting. In exchange for a small donation, we ventured off to find the answers without using the internet. It certainly wasn’t easy.

Check back soon – we’ll be sharing some of our attempts to answer your questions!

With ambitious targets of raising over £1000 for Remap and Cool Earth, we turned to some local businesses and big companies for support. The response we’ve had has been incredible. Take a look at who has supported us in our fundraising and to get the car ready for the road to Mongolia.
