Peking to Paris Media Coverage
TV crews film Peking to Paris
The 5th Peking to Paris Motor Challenge has been well received by television crews filming sections of the event in the countries we have travelled through.
No less than five TV units attended to ceremony for the Start at the Great Wall of China, including the BBC, and film was on the ITN website later that day.
Across Russia several TV stations attended our finishes into various towns, with organised press conferences provided by local motor-clubs. In the Ukraine, we were overwhelmed by thousands of spectators after crossing the frontier from Russia, with several TV cameras capturing the organised finish of the day.
The finish in Paris will be in Place Vendome, opposite the Ritz Hotel, the square is closed off for the arrival of the Peking to Paris and several thousand spectators are expected. Anyone can turn up – come and see the cars and meet the drivers, who will be sipping the victory champagne provided by Bonhams, our supporters. The cars are expected to arrive from 12.30pm onwards.
