“Cape Cold to Cape Hot is an epic story of sheer resolution and achievement.  In 1955, at the age of 39, Richard Pape made world history when, in an ordinary British car he became the first man alive to drive from Latitude 71 degrees North, 600 miles above the Arctic Circle, across two-thirds of the world’s surface to the southern tip of Africa.  This fantastic journey proved a feat of great skill and high personal endeavor and created world-wide interest becoming headline news in most countries.  After Pape had planned this Cape to Cape trip, rival foreign cars and drivers sought to steal his glory and the adventure developed into a race.”
