It’s Mon­go­lia or bust for ad­ven­tur­ous Tay­side trio

The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - News -

Three Tay­side men have set off on a month-long jour­ney of a life­time to raise cash for the Mag­gie’s Cen­tre.

Dundee pair Euan Simp­son and Alan Mann, plus Scott Lauder, from Perth, are tak­ing their S-reg­is­tered Nis­san Mi­cra on the Mon­gol Rally, one of the world’s most ar­du­ous road trips.

They trav­elled down to Good­wood in Sus­sex for the start and, af­ter jour­ney­ing through France, Ger­many, the Czech Repub­lic, Ser­bia, Turkey, Ge­or­gia, Azer­bai­jan, Turk­menistan and Kaza­khstan, they will make for the fin­ish line in the Mon­go­lian cap­i­tal of Ulan Ba­tor.

Then it’s on to Rus­sia and a flight home.

Alan said: “It’s not a race – it’s an en­durance test. We’ve been prepar­ing for this for a long time for a very good cause.”
