Seeking to promote India as a global heritage motoring tourism destination, a nearly 4,000-km expedition of iconic vintage cars will kick off from the national capital on February 17, traversing through 17 historic cities across the country and making several pit stops at royal palaces, its organiser said on Tuesday. The 23-day ‘Incredible India Rally’ organised by a heritage trust will culminate in the City of Lakes, Udaipur, on March 10 where the participants, comprising nearly 15 global vintage car aficionados and some Indian heritage automobile enthusiasts, will experience the festival of Holi in all its glory.
Preceding this mega event will be a Concours d’Elegance (car show) on February 15 to be held at India Gate, said Madan Mohan, chairman and managing trustee of 21 Gun Salute Heritage and Cultural Trust. The ‘Incredible India Rally’ is being organised by the trust in association with the Ministry of Tourism, he said.
