The London to Cape Town record attempt is on schedule as the three man team leaves Europe and ventures into Asia. The Land Rover Discovery with Mac Mackenney and his brother Steve and Chris Rawlings on board, are getting into a driving rhythm and they are now in Jordan en route to Jeddah.

Crossing the Bosphorous was a major landmark according to Mac and very useful that the land is connected by bridges and therefore not having to rely on ferries which would have impeded their progress.

Sleeping in the Discovery whilst on the move is challenging but the progress and pace has to be maintained and the team are on target. For an up-to-date position check out the interactive map at www.maxadventure.co.uk/L2CT
