Tuk Tuk rally in Sri Lanka
A highly unusual rally of Tuk-Tuks, or auto-rickshaws, is starting in Sri Lanka.
The ten-day event brings together eccentric novice drivers from countries ranging from New Zealand to India to Switzerland to Colombia.
Twenty-three brightly coloured tuk-tuks are now rallying in a coastal resort, with 47 people squeezed into them for the Great Sri Lankan Tuk-Tuk Challenge.
Few of them have ever driven one of these three-wheelers which ply the roads in countless Asian cities, and which the organisers call “one of the funkiest modes of transport invented by man”.
Once a driving lesson is over, they’ll be off, through the hills, coconut plantations, forests and back to the beaches in a 10-day race raising money for charity.
They have also scheduled in a day of tree-planting to offset their carbon emissions.
