The story of the Camel Trophy began in 1980, when three German teams decided to organise a Jeep rally in Brazil. They suggested that the local Camel office sponsor the project, paste logos on the cars and go on a trip. These guys returned as national heroes. After the first small expedition, the event was held annually, each time attracting an increasing number of teams. The adventure has acquired international status, under the name Camel Trophy and is permanently sponsored by the car brand Land Rover.

The Camel Trophy came to Russia in 1990. For the first time on the territory of the USSR, a major off-road competition was held on an international level with the participation of the Russian crew represented by Mark Podolsky and Anatoly Kuznetsov. After this event a new word "trophy" appeared in Russian. In 1995, Russia achieved significant successes when the crew represented by Pavel Bogomolov and Sergey Fenev won the "Team Spirit" award. The following year their success was continued by Alexey Svirkov and Dmitry Surin, having won the "Special Task" award. For 18 years, the Russian Camel Trophy has gained nationwide fame. Suffice it to say that in the first Russian selection there were about 100 applications, and 35,000 in the last.
