It’s all about the drive to survive. What happens when you ‘MacGyver-ize’ a car? In One Car Too Far To Train British Forces and to the American Car The twist, they will have to take a small red with them. It’s the perfect combination as one knows how to drive and the other knows how to survive. With no proper roads and no real supplies, the two must rely on instinct and expertise alone to make it out. From the treacherous slopes and near-freezing temperatures of a mountain top, to the wet, dense vegetation of the rainforest, they use whatever they can find just about any obstacle in their way.
