A Singapore man made history when he drove his Nissan GTR supercar all the way from sunny Singapore to the Mount Everest Base Camp. He travelled through numerous countries before arriving at his destination on 26 October. He will be driving back to Singapore and expects to arrive back home around mid November. The drive back is expected to take about 3 weeks.

Everest Base Camp – Been There, Done That, Got The T-Shirt !!! Finally arrived at Base Camp on Mon 24 Oct 2016 after more than 18 months of dreaming & planning. Thanks to my family for their support & understanding to allow me to undertake such a crazy project, to all of you for your encouragement & to Keith & the boys at MB Performance for their advice & tuning to make this Black Beast get it's way here!
I'm sharing some photos taken along the way with all you supporters. It's cruise home mode now. Oh, by the way, I'm changing my return route. The roads between Basu & Nyingchi are so bad it's not worth taking the risk to be a hero twice.
So I will spend 4 extra days going via the desert & grassland areas of Qinghai & Lanzhou then into Sichuan, Yunnan, Thailand, Malaysia & back to SG around mid-Nov.
My Tibetan guide Lhakpa Tenzin says this is the first GT-R or any supercar to ever make it to EBC. I hope it's true. Cheers!
