Mike Reeves and his Partner Michelle Jana Chan, the travel journalist & BBC Fast Track presenter, will be competing in the 5th Peking to Paris Endurance Rally later this year. They leave Peking on the 28th of May and over the next month will cross China and Mongolia, travel through Russia, the Ukraine, Slovakia and into Europe – ending their journey at the Place Vendome in Paris on the 29th of June.
This classic and vintage motor car challenge will be undertaken in Shiner, a 1940 V8 Ford Coupe which the drivers have lovingly restored from a bare shell. This is the iconic car favoured by the bank robbers Bonnie & Clyde.
