On the video all vehicles are BB - IA registered.. This means to Ineos Automotive.. - I was always wondering how this "Hard Way Home" works in "hand over" in relation to car registration.. so their vehicles need to be reregistered then in final country.. - strange enough.. so 2nd owner then?
I expect a vehicle that was never registered at all.

Marketing isn't a logical business.

I guess, they get the cars from Ineos and upon arrival, they get their own cars. Maybe in Hambach - and then drive home. The "hard way". 🙃

Honestly, I assumed the vehicles they’ll actually be driving will not be their real vehicles and that upon the end of the trip they’ll take ownership of the vehicle they ordered.

The cars you see in this video are (as most of you probably know) PT (test) models. The one with numberplate BBIA259 is PT02-109, and was shipped to Australia I think.

I would guess they will drive their real cars, together with some Prototypes who show them the way. If I had been participating, I would have asked to drive my own car!

This is all old footage from the original competition. None of this is new. As I understand it they will be driving thieir own vehicles but INEOS has undertaken to fix any damage incurred.

No way
Starting there and heading home would soon have you at the ferry and then it's Spain, France. Now if they were to start a little further south, say Timbuktu.

No way Rose, they wouldn’t be traveling across Mali, Niger, Algeria..although spectacular, way too dangerous, with tricky logistics for the unassuming. The only country that is feasible is Morocco, unless they’re staying in Europe..

Yes, I'm sure you're right... just dreaming. Timbuktu was one of those places I used to read about in books all about desert adventure when I was a child.
Me too-:))..quite an elusive destination..another good starting point would be the festival du Niger in Segou..amazing display of Saharan art and music..let’s keep dreaming, maybe one day..
