Thumbs up The Great Rally of India Bentleys on display in Mumbai on 26 Jan 09

Hey guys, just got this sms from my patient, a top gun at the WIAA:

"Racing Bentleys from UK are on display at CCI club on Friday 23rd Jan from 12noon to 5pm."

Anyone can come and view.

Bombayites if interested, please take note.

Don't ask for details, since this is all i know. They may be vintage cars too. I will be going.

EDIT: CCI club is at marine drive in south bombay. Nearest station is churchgate.

Oh! I didn't know it was only for Racing Bentleys. I understood it was for all Bentleys but who cares. A Bentley is a Bentley, a joy to behold.

During the Cartier show one of the judges was telling me that a whole group of Bentley owners were planning to visit India in Jan-Feb for a drive, I think from Jaipur (or Delhi) to Bombay.

It must be these cars. Hope some of our vintage car fans make it to the display, and take some pictures please
