The first ever London to Sydney Marathon was organised in 1968, The original event was won by Andrew Cowan, Colin Malkin and Brian Coyle, driving a Hillman Hunter. Fifty-six cars finished whilst 92 cars started in London. An organising committee was established to create a suitably challenging but navigable route. The team plotted a 7,000-mile (11.200) course covering eleven countries in as many days. Than the teams had to drive day and night fighting the elements gruweling roads and fatique.
This time we will allow the competitors to concor the 16.000 kilometer route passing through 11 countries a more comfortable 40 days to complete this epic journey. The first leg of the route from England to Perth and Sydney wil stop in Mombai for the crossing to Perth, given the present international political situation. It is our intention to continue overland to Bombay, just like the original route from 1968. If not possible we will board in Turkey.
