Explore some of the UK's most beautiful countryside from the comfort of..... A TUK-TUK.

Welcome to the UK Tuk-Tuk Challenge! It’s finally happening folks. The finest vehicle known to man has crossed the Himalayas, traversed central and Asia, navigated Europe, swam across the channel and is now here in the United Kingdom. That’s right, there are now tuk-tuk’s living and breathing right here in the UK. Our next job is to stick a bunch of them together and drive them across some of the most beautiful scenery England and Wales has to offer, drink the finest ales in the land all in the company of the most elite drivers this country has ever produced. Obviously the ale drinking and tuk-tuk driving wont be done simultaneously (did we need to mention that??).

See, we love rickshaws and we love adventures. So we thought we’d take our extremely successful rickshaw rally format – in which, you drive around a country as part of a team and complete challenges to accrue points – and apply it right here in the UK. It’ll kick-off from somewhere central, then wind up, down, under and around this incredible little island, before eventually arriving back somewhere else central, like a big, fat, self-drive boomerang. And there it is. The UK Tuk-Tuk Challenge is born. Are we good or what?

Sponsors & Partners

Mechanical support (and all round legends)

We are delighted to be working with our good friends over at Tuk Tuk UK who will be providing us with a support vehicle and expert Mechanic for the duration of the Challenge. There really is only one place to look if you ever need to buy a tuk-tuk in the UK and that is the one and only TUK TUK UK! Needless to say, if you whisper the words Large Minority to them they might even give you a little discount.

Charity Partners

We are delighted to be supporting the Rosie May Foundation. To see all the amazing work they do (allot of it tuk-tuk related) hop over to their website and check them out. We will be donating 10% of all registration fees to them and on top of that, we at Large Minority will not be taking any profit from this event, any excess funds that are left over from running this event will be transferred to the Rosie May Foundation 14 days after the event.

We would like to extend our thanks to James Warren for his time helping us create a fantastic route. If you would like to see more of James’ adventures on a tuk-tuk you can check out his page right here.
