The first official event of the rally is a briefing by the Chinese Police and the presentations of (a few) licences. Very well attended – though we do have to sign in so pretty mandatory and very ceremonial. Most of us will get our docs tomorrow morning.

Content wise – I am hoping that most of the drivers already know that you should stop at a red light, drive on the right in China and shouldn’t drive drunk..

A lot of the crews have done this before – so we should be checking out who to follow out of Beijing on Sunday!. Also one driver Matt spoke to has had ‘a few’ MkII Jags.. that might help!
