Three Manxies and an Aussie have defied the odds in driving an ageing car across nearly 13,000 miles in a gruelling international event.

Locals Adam Callister, Fern Callister, Katherine Watling and Australian Dan Simpson – also known as ‘Team Mad Manx’ – have completed the Mongol Rally covering 21 countries in an old, rainbow-coloured Toyota Starlet.

Their efforts have been in support of Hospice Isle of Man and Cool Earth with the group able to chart their progress on social media over the past few weeks.

The team is thanking everyone for the backing they’ve received, adding they hope to reveal the final total of how much money they’ve raised in the near future.
