After 2 long years, we are back to the same routes where Genghis Khan used to reign supreme. Known as the ultimate pre-Dakar test of mettle, the Silk Way Rally takes us on a whirlwind 10-day journey through the plains of Russia and the mountains of Mongolia.

Time to #RaceTheLimits in the Silk Way!
