Historic Endurance Rallying with Penny & Geoff

Driving the World with Geoff & Penny Rawlings in their wonderful old Talbot

Thank you for visiting our web site.

This site was created to let friends and family follow our progress on the 2007 PEKING TO PARIS MOTOR CHALLENGE. We then decided to enlarge it to include our other adventures in our wonderful old TALBOT motor car.

Click on the BLOG button at the top to read about any of our rallies in chronological order from the PEKING TO PARIS in 2007 to the most recent and planned ones in the future. There are also buttons to provide a bit more background to us, the car and lots of other stuff.

Since 2007 there have been lots of other local events around Ireland but they can’t really be described as “adventures”.

Our last trip was in early 2020 to Sri Lanka and since the Coronavirus precautions took over nothing has been running. Also in 2020 we were entered on an event in North Wales and another “Around Ireland” rally but they have both been cancelled. We had our fingers crossed that we could tick off another special milestone in 2021. In 2013 we reached the southernmost road in the world at Ushuaia on Terra del Fuego (Cape Horn). 2021 we were hoping to drive to Nordkapp (North Cape), the most northerly road in the world but sadly that has been cancelled too.

We hope you enjoy reading our ramblings and if you have any comments or questions, please don’t hesitate to drop us an email.
