We are 2 guys from the small Fenland town of Chatteris, Dan (30) and Dave (36). Driving to Japan has been a crazy dream of ours for many years and although we both see this adventure as a once in a lifetime opportunity, our main goal is to raise as much money as possible for our chosen charity. BBC Children In Need has raised over £740 million since 1980 for disabled children and young people in the UK. Through this fund-raising page, sponsorship and media exposure, our intention is to raise a significant amount towards the 2018 Children In Need grand total.

Event details

Dan & Dave - Chatteris To Tokyo

Our crazy plan is to drive from our home town of Chatteris in Cambridgeshire, to the capital of Japan, Tokyo. We will be doing this adventure in a small 2 wheel drive Toyota Yaris, driving through 20 countries across 12,500 miles on some of the worlds most challenging roads and roughest terrain, cutting through deserts, mountains and rivers. We estimate the journey will take around 9 weeks in total. Our passion and work  is car related, therefore we will be visiting as many different motorsport venues as possible. Our final week will be spent exploring Japan's car culture, visiting race circuits, tuning garages, car meets and the iconic mount Fuji.
