The 1968 London to Sydney Marathon : A History of the 10,000 Mile Endurance Rally, Paperback / softback Book

The 1968 London to Sydney Marathon : A History of the 10,000 Mile Endurance Rally Paperback / softback

Description

On November 24, 1968, more than 250 people from 19 nations set off on a 10,000-mile endurance rally from London to Sydney.

Crossing 10 countries, competitors encountered officious border guards, gangs of rock-throwing children, treacherous driving conditions, collisions, breakdowns, injuries, wayward dogs, livestock, camels and kangaroos, millions of spectators crowding the roads and even bandits.

Among the professional drivers were a large number of enthusiastic amateurs, many of whom had never raced in their lives.
