This two part series follows three men as they embark on the adventure of a lifetime, as they attempt to break the world record for the fastest over land journey to the South Pole. The three-man crew includes polar expedition leader and current record holder Jason de Carteret, design engineer specialist Kieron Bradley and Jason Thomas "JT", a Canadian copywriter who won his place on the expedition through a competition. Rounding out the team is ‘Polar,' a revolutionary concept vehicle specifically custom modified for this quest. She has been jacked up to run on massive 44-inch tires, has a supercharged V6 engine running on bio fuel, double wishbone suspension, a metre-long bar fitted on her front designed to stop her falling into crevasses and a reinforced survival cell built into her cab.
