Episode 1 - Beijing To Mongolia Via Xuanhua, Zhangjiakou, Jini

There's limited back-up, hardly any spares and 14,000 kilometres to drive. After just two kilometres there's the first breakdown. The yellow De Dion's having battery problems and neurosurgeon, John Matheson's getting left behind because his gearbox is starting to play up. Even Stijnus Schotte's million-dollar Dutch Spyker has conked out with a fuel blockage. Then they lose John Matheson altogether. There's tension building up and they haven't even reached the Great Wall of China.
