After 18,500km, and fourteen countries, the team has rolled into Beijing, and aside from a cracked foglight on one car, a cracked screen on another, and two punctured tyres, they made it completely intact, and without incident.
Well, when we say without incident, that discounts the fact that pretty much the entire run was a true adventure, proving beyond doubt that the Land Rover Discovery is capable of going round the world. Literally. The team, which has driven the cars all the way from the UK may have changed drivers, and was joined by countless guests along the way, but the cars – including the 1,000,000th Disco off the line – were consistently and perfectly behaved.
