The second rest day in the Siberian capital Novosibirsk, the biggest city after Ulaanbaatar. Participants repair the mechanical damages that came about in Mongolia and prep their cars for the paved roads of Russia.
Now that the car is ready to ship to China Kurht can concentrate on his driving skills and get words of advice from Chris and TJ on what to expect during the Peking to Paris rally. Does he regret embarking on such a mammoth of a journey?
The countdown begins. Kurht and Derek have been accepted but now they must prep the 912 to endure the punishing terrain of the 9000 mile journey from Beijing to France. The first step? Returning the car to its original Irish Green.
No detail in the rebuild of the car is overlooked. K&H upholstery is commissioned to rebuild the seat to original specs and Richard is hired to rebuild the engine to increase performance and minimize failures.
