You'll be sent these official Mongol Rally stickers to adorn your car with. They are 60cm x 30cm. They are to go on your car bonnet and side doors. Last year, we started sending them in April, it usually takes a few months to send out all three-hundred odd.
It's done for a number of reasons, but mainly it helps you can identify your Rally comrades on the road. In about mid August, you'll foolishly follow maps.me 'road' into the Kazakh desert, ending up on a sandy dusty plain hundreds of miles from anywhere and desperately needing a poo. Suddenly lo! - another team trundles into view bearing their Mongol Rally sticker on their bonnet. They've also gone the wrong way and they smell just as bad as you. You'll be absurdly grateful for that jolt of familiarity.
This sticker stops your photos from looking like any other middling piss-poor excuse of a road trip. You're driving to Ulan-Ude not Ipswich. It'll catalyses friendships and generates giggles from the locals. It guarantees sex.* You are joining a the ranks of Adventurisms finest so you need to make sure your car looks the part.
There's another reason too which is duller. We can sometimes negotiate fun things, like free beer or random gifts. The value of that is greatly dimmed for the companies we work without the branding - that means we're pretty stuck on the stickers getting put in the right places.
Can I put them somewhere else instead?
No. You Mongol Ralliers - ahem - stick together. It's fair that way. It's in the Ts&Cs and it's one thing we'll be pretty persistent about.
But what if they don't fit?
