Great Peking To Paris Expedition

Irkutsk To The Asia/Europe Border Via Krasnoyarsk,

Season 1, Episode 3 of 4

The yellow De Dion has a hole in the gear box, the Contal has a broken spring, the Itala has a broken tail shaft ... and the crews are just managing to limp into Irkutsk. With the help of the Russian Hell's Angels, most are back on the road in two days except for Lang and Warren. It will be days before their Itala is ready, and they will drive day and night to catch up with the rest of the expedition. Over the next few days the team comes back together again. Russia's roads are the most dangerous on earth and driving them for 10-12 hours each day every day is not for the faint-hearted. Our adventurers yearn for seat belts ... or doors ... or a roof on the car for that matter!
