Team Jäger battalion's
mission to mongolia

Everything you see here is 100% epic!

Hello - We're Marcus Kilgour and Danny Wilde aka Team Jäger Battalion. In July 2016, Danny and Marcus will be setting off on an epic Jäger fueled adventure - the 2016 Mongol Rally!

The rules are simple. Drive a completely unsuitable shit car from the UK over mountains and across deserts to Mongolia. No set route, and no backup.

Through France, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgystan, Kazakhstan, Russia and Mongolia, we'll be driving "Bertha", a £280 2004 Vauxhall Agila from the UK to Mongolia, and hopefully home again through Russia.

What could possibly go wrong?!

We'll keep you updated throughout the trip. We've got an interactive map with GPS tracking so you can see where we've broken down. We'll upload videos, photos and blog entries wherever we find decent WiFi.We'll also post updates on Facebook - the link is at the bottom of this page.

I’m an awesome Austrian, who will be firmly flying the European flag on the trip.

I’m a dab hand when it comes to all things mechanical, and am the organised member of the team, as well as the epic DJ!

I’m bringing my electric guitar and amp so will aim to be the loudest Mongol Rally team!

I started the Mongol Rally last year, but things didn’t work out, so back this year to fulfill the bucket list and get a photo at the finish line in Ulan Ude!

After too long sitting behind a desk, I’ve been yearning for adventure!

I’ve wanted to do the rally for years, but time, money, skiing and sailing holidays always seemed to get in the way.

This year, I’ve cleared the decks for 10 weeks and counting down!

I live and work in Bath, South West UK, so if you’re local, let me know and we can share a couple of Jägers!

Mechanical skills = nonexistent!

Alcoholic skills = high!

As well as having an epic adventure, we're trying to raise as much money as humanly possible for these awesome charities
