Before the Mad Way South crew, no one had attempted to cross the Sahara desert by wind power alone. Few would be crazy enough to believe that it could even be achieved. Mad Way South follows four adventure junkies as they race their Kite Buggies across 2200 kilometres of the Sahara desert.
Initially they expected to encounter an endless sea of flowing sand dunes. They instead found a brutal desert landscape with intense daytime heat and harsh night time cold temperatures that pushed the competitors beyond exhaustion. Add to this many surprising challenges, one of which very nearly put Gurney in an early grave..(..again!).
