Sartech sponsors "Rub-a-dub-dub, Three Men and a Tub"
3 students set off for Mongolia in a Nissan Micra with a bath tub on the roof
Three Bath University students set off in July on a 10,000 mile adventure in the Mongol Rally - with a PLB supplied by Sartech as emergency back-up.
To quote from the "organisers":
Welcome to the Mongol Rally: the greatest motoring adventure on the planet.
The Mongol Rally thunders 10,000 miles across the mountains, desert and steppe of Europe and Asia each summer. There’s no backup, no support and no set route; just you, your fellow adventurists and a tiny car you bought from a scrapyard for £11.50.
If nothing goes wrong, everything has gone wrong.
Bollocks to tarmac, ABS and gadgets that help you find your navel. The Mongol Rally is about getting lost, using your long neglected wits, raising shedloads of cash for charity and scraping into the finish line with your vehicle in tatters and a wild grin smeared across your grubby face.
Neither your car, nor your life, will ever be the same again.
The rules of the Rally are gloriously simple…
