Peking to Paris

In 1907, when the motorcar still had something to prove, the punishing Peking to Paris race was born of a casual dare in a Parisian newspaper. More than 25, 000 kms of unmapped terrain, with fuel-carrying camels parked along the way, was covered by just five teams, after most of the entrants pulled out - and the race had been officially cancelled. Almost 100 years later five very similar cars undertook a recreation of this epic race, filmed by the ABC for this excellent 4-part series.
