Ex-Grammar lads’ rallying adventure

‘Team North Yakshire’ is making amazing progress in their 10,000 mile Mongol Rally, to raise £2,000 for a Mongolian Children’s Charity.

Former Harrogate Grammar School pupils Jamie Furlong, 22, of Langcliffe Avenue and Oliver, 23, and Alex, 20, Rhodes of Arthurs Avenue, left the UK on July 23 in a 1 litre engine Suzuki Swift.

They have travelled through Eastern Europe, Iran, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan and will soon cross Kazakhstan into Russia and finally Mongolia.

Highlights and adventures include navigating challenging terrain in 48C heat, camping in deserts, driving the Pamir Highway and being chased by wild dogs.
