Matters of the Moment   
That greatest and possibly the last of real motoring adventures, namely the 14,000-km Peking-Paris 2024, organised by our friends over at HERO/ERA, got underway on 18 May. Seventy-five participants having invested their life savings, well some anyway, will be working their way slowly west, via a series of timed stages, hoping to arrive at the finish on 23 June with cars still in one piece. It won‘t be easy, and it won‘t be fun. But by heck, it will be a rally to remember. Jealous? Who, me? Yes!
