Vintage cars ready for Peking to Paris rally

Motoring enthusiasts have 33 days to complete route through some of the most remote areas on Earth.

    Almost 200 international motoring enthusiasts have gathered in their vintage cars for the fifth Peking to Paris rally, a 12,000 kilometre driving adventure.

    It was first run more than a 100 years ago, long before the Chinese capital was known as Beijing.

    They have 33 days to complete the route, driving through some of the most remote areas on Earth.
