Asian adventure – from China to Stuttgart
Series: Travel diary
The 10,000-kilometre road trip: our series about the mega route.
Empty motorways, “Chinese-style” service stations, instant noodles
and strange encounters: a group of test drivers from Mercedes-Benz
Trucks drove three Actros back to Germany from China on the new Silk
Road, after a series of test drives. The trucks belong to the Daimler
Trucks endurance test fleet that ensures quality and reliability in
markets all around the globe.
Three Actros, two continents.
The return journey covers more than 10,000-kilometres through China, Kazakhstan, Russia, Belarus and Poland. Eberhard Joos from the Daimler Trucks development team kept a diary for you on the tour.
This is a story about unusual impressions on long journeys through
Asia and eastern Europe, and about the exciting adventures the crew of
developers and drivers had on the way. From next week on, you can read
about it in our four-part series on RoadStars.
