We Are Team Karma Cowboys
The brilliant salesman who sold the idea of participating in this crazy thing to rest of the team, in the first place. 27 years of age, the guy has seen more of the world than you would imagine, North Korea probably being the most exotic.
The team’s youngest member at the tender age of 22, with his driving record definitely the designated driver.. Or maybe not..
Rasmus Cort Hansen
First guy on the team sheet and the man who seems to be pulling all the strings together. 27 and unmarried Rasmus is closing in on a midlife crisis.
We live in a wonderful world full of adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have, if only we seek them with our eyes open. Adventures should be for everyone, and that’s why we are driving for the Make A Wish Foundation
OUR SKODA FABIA
Skoda Fabia Combivan
1,2 Petrol, 65
CD – Player
0-100 km/h in 16,3 sek
Some call this a Volkswagen wanna-be, while others will know that the two founders of Skoda were bicycle mechanics from the Czech Republic. This beauty was built way before the VW-Diesel-Scandal and has much more than fancy engine descriptions. It runs on petrol and was born with 64 horsepowers. We believe it to have lost a few since then, but we still believe that it has what it takes to bring us trough some of this world’s most demanding routes.
From the Goodwood Racetrack in southern England to Ulan-Ude in Russia. Trough the deserts of Iran to the snowy mountains of Kyrgyzstan, more than 15.000 kilometres, this is a roadtrip halfway around the Globe.
The choice of the beautiful Skoda is not a just a coincidence. It has a beautiful history as well as some great features.
We’ll have plenty of space and the car is well-equipped with soundsystem and radio with AUX input. Skoda however forgot installing air-condition but what the heck. It has electric windows.
Some may wonder why we’re driving a car with such a small engine –
It’s clear that though we’re driving for a good cause, driving for 15.000 km is not really great for our environment, which is why we looked for the smallest engine possible in order to consume as little petrol as possible. It’s also a rule from The Adventurists who arrange Mongol Rally, in order to challenge the teams and it’s aspiring drivers.
