The Peking to Paris Motor Challenge is unique in the motoring world – a true endurance motor rally following in the wheel-tracks of the original pioneers of 1907. Driving an old car nearly halfway around the world with a bunch of like-minded enthusiasts, against the clock, with the added spice of timed sections, makes Peking to Paris the longest and toughest driving challenge for Vintage and Classic cars. The 2022 (Now rescheduled to 2024) Peking to Paris Motor Challenge will now take place in 2024.

Event Itinerary

Travelling through China, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turkey Greece, Italy and France, the epic 36-day adventure will cover approximately 14,250kms (8850 miles) and be a true test of endurance for both car and crew. You will be able to find all of the latest news and stories from Syd Stelvio, right here on the HERO-ERA website.

The Route

Who Can Participate?

The event route is challenging, and for this reason, we welcome only experienced crews and crews who are prepared to compete in other HERO-ERA events prior to tackling the Peking to Paris. You will need a sense of adventure and be prepared to spend nights under canvas in the deserts of Mongolia and Kazakhstan. The ability to carry out regular maintenance on your own car is essential. Average daily distances are around 400 kilometres but, on occasion, they can be as much as 650 kilometres – it is an endurance event after all.

There will be three main categories:

A – Pioneer up to December 1920
B – Vintage & Vintageant from January 1921 up to December 1947
C – Classic from January 1948 to December 1975
Some categories may be subdivided into classes based on engine size

"It's the perfect charity for this -- it involves men and cars," said Tom.
