Default KVCCC Rally- 29th April'12 at Taj West End

Karnataka Vintage & Classic Car Club (KVCCC) in association with Taj West End will be having a rally for their members and only their cars on the 29th April'12. Taj West End is celebrating 125 years and we will have a "Breathe Easy" theme drive. "Breathe Easy" is associated to the greenery at the Taj West End property.

All KVCCC members need to send their application before the 24th April as per the communication send from the Club. Taj West End will have a committee to select the cars in view of the parking restrictions inside the hotel, which limits the total number of cars. In the 2009 Gardenia event there were 109 cars but we expect significantly fewer but better cars this time.

Assembly of cars are expected from around 8.00 a.m. and flag off will be at 10.00 a.m. for a small drive around Bangalore CBD. Once the route is finalized I will post the same to enable people who are interested to come and see the cars along the route.

Public can come to see the cars at Taj West End before flag off, but must be aware that parking inside the hotel could be a major issue.

Will keep the updates going .......

The Plymouth PB will be be making its first rally appearance.

Cheers

Most welcome Karthik. Hope to catch up with all enthusiasts who are interested to come see the cars. As suggested do come before flag off which is a 10 a.m. Alternatively, I will post the route map, once it is firmed up, for the convenience of people who may find coming to Taj West End difficult.

As explained earlier parking at Taj West End is at a premium and you will have to park out side in the parking zones around the Hotel and walk the distance.

Cheers

Took the car for a morning drive and fueled her up. Standard question at the petrol bunk "Dieselaa saar"

The car is running well. Note the original MC/P # in the front just to bring more nostalgia. I am sure we will have lot of explanations to do

The number plate fell off so we had to make do tying it with a string found on the road

There will be 60 cars and 20 motor bikes in the Rally. Guess the 1926 Willy's Knight, 1932 Plymouth, 1932 Chevrolet Eagle , 1933 Ford V8, 1934 Graham are some of the 1st time vintage car entrants.

Cars will start assembling around 8 and flag off by the Chief Minister is at 10.30 a.m, for a 19 km run around the city. First regrouping will be in Cubbon Park, next halt will be at Taj Vivanta (Old Residency) and lastly we will stop at UB City. We end the rally with lunch at Taj West End

More tomorrow

Cheers

Popped in there at 8.30 and left before flag off. CM came and did a flag off pose for the press 30 min before actual flag off. Quite a few people turned up. Was a challenge taking pics with plenty of people and the sun shining the wrong way. Was unable to return at lunch time. I tried to focus on cars outside the Dr Ravi Prakash collection which have not been shown before.

Enjoy and please add to this.
