'Hello The NoMad Rush team,

Though neither starting in London nor ending in Tashkent, the London-Tashkent Challenge has had two previous outings in 2005 and 2006 and is back for a third instalment.
The fun and in-no-way-daunting challenge is to buy a motor for around £100 and drive through France, Holland, Belgium, Germany, Poland, Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan and into Kyrgyzstan.
