Rally Preparation Services (RPS) is supporting Rally Round’s inaugural Trans Himalayan Adventure through China, Tibet, Nepal and India.
A #TeamRPS crew of Gary Pickard and Gary Oliver are heading to China to support Rally Round on the Trans Himalayan Adventure – driving up and over the plateau of the Himalayas by way of Tibet, Nepal and India.
With around 20 crews taking part, including three cars that have come through the RPS workshop, the boys will have plenty to keep them occupied on the 28-day event that starts on Saturday 20th April in Chengdu in the Sichuan region of China. They then head to the Himalayas via Tibet and Nepal to the finish line in Kathmandu on 10thMay 2019.
Rally Round Director Liz Wenman said: “We first visited the region in 2015 with the Thunder Dragon Rally but we are reaching new heights on this event. We have kept the entries limited due to the intense nature of the terrain as we head for the plateau of the Himalayas. This will be an unforgettable adventure for all involved.
“While other events have travelled along the southern foothills of the Himalayas, we will be crossing the range from north to south,” adds Liz. “Our route is not for the faint-hearted – crews will drive at high altitude and tackle astonishing roads and mountain tracks as they visit the magical city of Lhasa, the lost Western Tibetan Kingdom of Guge, sacred Mount Kailash and Everest Base Camp.
“Along the way we will experience unimaginably beautiful landscapes, rare wildlife and amazing cultural sites ranging from ancient ruins to stunning temples and monasteries.”
The Trans Himalayan Adventure’s journey does not end in Kathmandu as some of the crews will then continue to Pokhara in Nepal and cross the border into India to the final destination of Varanasi.
Rally Round offers amazing adventures all over the world and has a full calendar up until 2021 and beyond. It creates unique events that combine the passion for historic motorsport with the adventure of global travel.
