Porsches line up for the start of the 2005 Hong Kong-Shanghai Charity Grand Tour at the China Merchants Wharf in Sai Wan. The journey is expected to take six nights and seven days, with stops in Guangdong, Fujian , Zhejiang and Jiangsu provinces. Organisers say the 51 cars with a 120-strong team of drivers and passengers will travel between 500km to 800km a day. It is hoped the event will raise $1 million for the China Foundation for Poverty Alleviation, the Shanghai Charity Foundation and the Mercy Corps.
