Hyundai Santa Fe’s Conquest of Antarctica : Amazing Pictorial Record of Great Grandson of legendary polar explorer, Sir Ernest Shackleton

[dropcap]H[/dropcap]yundai Motor has made history when a near-standard 2.2-litre diesel Santa Fe became the first passenger vehicle to be driven across the continent of Antarctica from Union Camp to McMurdo and back again.

The Santa Fe was driven by Patrick Bergel, the Great Grandson of legendary polar explorer, Sir Ernest Shackleton.

The journey which took place in December 2016 was timed to commemorate the centenary of Shackleton’s heroic Trans-Antarctic expedition of 1914-16 and has been made into a short film by Hyundai which was shown for the first time at an event at the Hospital Club, London last night.
