1 UNRELIABLE VEHICLE.
This is the adventure that separates the men from the boys and the hunters from the hunted. A journey which could take anywhere from 19 days to never as we attempt to outrun the African wilderness.
Ladies and Gentlemen the Put Foot Rally is a killer trek through 6 countries, 6 checkpoints, and 6 parties to celebrate surviving one more day, switching currencies and road conditions, while meeting the school children and putting shoes on their feet and probably new wheels on the vehicle.

Frederic Chanut, 32, aka Freddy, is an adept of corn chips + salsa and often watch internet comic strips.
Freddy brings to the team his … iPod full of outdated music, a driving genre of his own and humour that will definitely make Michael cringe way before hitting Perth outer suburbs.
Michael Scholz, 31, aka Micha or Scholle, is a passionate soccer player & off-road specialist with his Jeep Wrangler Rubicon.
The major assets Michael brings to the team are his ability to manage a project from start, his high level planning/project management skills.
Ladies and Gentlemen The Putfoot Rally is an African Safari without the guide, where we may be the wildest, hairiest animals of all.
