TWO students from Redland have set out on a life-changing adventure to Mongolia. Their form of transport? A 1998 Nissan Micra covered in red chrome vinyl wrap.
Ed Cooper and Ben Crowther, 21, began their 10,000-mile journey to Mongolia's capital, Ulaanbaatar, on July 20.
Team "Baatarsky and Hutch" set off from Battersea Power Station, alongside other competitors, as part of the Mongol Rally race.
Participants have to stick to several rules - their car's engine has to be 1.0 litre or less, they have to undertake the challenge on their own, and they have to raise at least £1,000 for charity.
The Bristol University students - who will be driving unaided through 17 countries, three mountain ranges and two deserts - are raising money for Papyrus, that works to prevent suicides in young people, and Cool Earth, a rainforest protection charity.
The duo have so far raised almost £1,300.
