Was it signed for posterity?

In years to come there will be debate about whether it is the actual broomstick or a flat-pack replica..... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Excellent! and just think Rich: If you hadn't put the broom handle on his roof rack, then I wouldn't have been tracking him on Facebook, and my call for help to minipeople.ru wouldn't have happened. Could have turned out very differently.

Funny old world.

Hello, Yeah just made it back late last night! We were wondering who posted that, as no one seemed to know.
But yes you saved me :) thanks so much for posting that as it led to some of the best moment of the rally!

Superb achievement!

I actually hope not, this is way bigger than a 2 page 'flash in the pan' Magazine article, it should all go in a book (remember those?).

There were two guys from Dublin who did the Mongol Rally in a 05 Diahatsu Charade,unlike our brave Mini friends their Jap box never broke down although they did have broken spring problems.Brilliant to see the Mini back where it all started and Riches prophecy of doom was kind of unfounded.
