Is this the ultimate test-drive for a reasonably-priced car?
In February Philip Young and Paul Brace are attempting to establish a new world record by driving nearly 1,000 miles a day for 10 days from Cape Town to London ...and they are driving a Fiat Panda, one of the smallest-engined cars you'll find on sale today.
The records in our sights... the British Army's, Guiness Book of Records, driving record has stood for 30 years, taking 14 days from Cape Town to London ...and it might just be possible to beat the outright World Record snatched two years ago by a three-man crew in a Land Rover Discovery as the best ever, 11½ day, drive from London to Cape Town. Can we do it?
We're also keen to leave some lasting benefit in our wheeltracks by raising lots of money for Farm Africa. We can't be sure to beat the record but please help us on the way by making a donation to Farm Africa.
