"...as satisfying and moving as a good novel." - Classic Cars Magazine. "...a highly recommended read for any Porsche or travel fan." - PurelyPorsche. Survival of the Quickest - Across Africa. In a Porsche. 15,000 miles. 26 countries. One unforgettable adventure. In autumn 2008, Laura Reddin and Ben Coombs set off to drive from England to South Africa in a classic Porsche 944. No such journey had ever been made before, and everyone said it was impossible. They said the two young adventurers would end up broken down in the middle of some baking desert, or be robbed at knifepoint. They were right on both counts. But what they couldn't predict was that through the highs and the lows, the breakdowns and the bureaucracy, the red tape and the robberies, Laura and Ben would grow closer than they could imagine, and find romance amid Africa's epic vistas. From the edgy streets of Syria to the rutted tracks of Kenya, via the war-torn sands of the Sudan, Survival of the Quickest is the first book to describe the absolute cutting edge of adventurous road trips in gritty, honest detail. At turns inspiring, absorbing and thought-provoking, it shows just what can be achieved with a tough old car, a well-worn passport and a whole heap of determination.
