2012 London to Cape Town
13 January 2012
The 2012 London to Cape Town Rally has now been on the road for twelve days. The father and son team of Mike and Ben Dawson are still going very well. After a somewhat mediocre start on home soil in Kent, they have worked their way up the leader board having been as high as 12th overall at one point. On the eleventh day, along with much of the 42-strong entry, the tricky sands caught them out and they dropped to fifteenth place, but it was still very close as just 5 mins covered the first ten places. The leaders, Kent-based team Andy Actman and Andy Elcomb in a Toyota Highlux 4x4, have a good lead at the time of writing but things could still change on this gruelling event!
