Manx Mongol Rally team sets off on big adventure

Ten thousand-mile drive in a 'banger' lays ahead

A trio of friends from the Isle of Man and their Australian team mate are today embarking upon an epic adventure, as they aim to drive across Europe and a large chunk of Asia.

Adam Callister, Fern Callister, Katharine Watling and Dan Simpson are taking part in the Mongol Rally.

Teams will aim to drive the 10,000 miles from Prague in the Czech Republic to the Siberian town of Ulan Ude in less than 75 days.

Fern and Katharine have been speaking to Manx Radio about what they see as their biggest challenges:

The team is raising money for Hospice Isle of Man.
