They also took part in the 2007 Peking to Paris race, and photos of that event can be found here

The car took a bit of a battering on the Nile Trail, so the Keeler's are aiming to do a complete strip-down in readiness for the next Peking to Paris race, sponsorship allowing.

With grateful thanks to Gerard Brown for allowing use of his photographs
