Jasonís polar dash is on Discovery this week

Post by Dell on Wed 20 Jun 2012, 7:41 am

A GUERNSEY adventurerís record-breaking journey to the South Pole will be the subject of a new Discovery Channel series, which starts at 9pm on Thursday.

The Worldís Toughest Drive chronicles the journey of Jason De Carteret Ė along with engineer Kieron Bradley and Canadian Jason Thomas, who won his place in the specially-adapted Toyota pickup Ė as they broke his record time to drive to the South Pole.

The expedition took place in December last year.

The vehicle, which was specially registered in Guernsey, got the men to the pole in one day, 15 hours and 54 minutes Ė beating Mr De Carteretís own 2005 record of two days, 21 hours and 21 minutes.
