Default Report & Pics: 21 Gun Salute Vintage Car Rally, 2017

The 7th edition of the 21 Gun Salute vintage and classic car rally was conducted in Delhi spread across the 17th, 18th and 19th of February. Spearheaded by prominent collector Madan Mohan, the display this time around was held at the India Gate as opposed to the Red Fort in previous years, which allowed for cars to be better placed. A deliberate attempt was made to restrict the number of entries, making everything more manageable and enjoyable.

After the display, on Sunday we really looked forward to driving to the Buddh F1 circuit in Greater Noida, for a chance to drive a few laps on the track, and give our cars a well deserved outing. Given the great time we had in the last edition, this time even more participants came down from outstation with the temptation of having a go on the track - and nobody was disappointed!

A couple of international participants were present, both stunning Rolls-Royces - a Silver Ghost and a Phantom V - more on those later.

The panel of judges was most impressive, no less than 18 international judges, a short profile of whom is in the press release as under.

These two little miniatures were a big hit - a Jaguar XK120 and Cobra minicar, made by ace restorers Marespand and Sunil from Bombay for Amal's son Mahir who is getting first class training to grow up to be a premier car buff The cars were built from the frame up locally, with fibre bodies. Powered by a single cylinder engine with sequential four speed clutchless transmission, they were a hoot to drive. There was so much interest generated that they are contemplating commercial production.

Thanks Karl for the outstanding report.

The annual 21 Gun Salute Rally is undoubtedly one of the top events for the vintage and classic cars enthusiasts in the country. I understand that keeping with the past tradition, it was another very well organized event with great hospitality.

Probably the only event where we get to see international entries.

The two little miniatures are excellent replicas. I saw a video of one of them on the race track !

Cheers

Thank you for a great write up (as always) Karl. Stunning vehicles. A quick note on one of the bikes. ADR 8130 is a Norton Atlas 750 (1962). The bike was earlier in Bengaluru and owned and restored by Rajesh Nair before it moved on to Delhi. Rajesh hand restored the entire bike without using any workshop and post restoration, the bike had done 18,000 kms and was ridden to Ladakh. This bike was earlier written about on team-bhp as well:

Its great to see this bike being part of the 21 Gun Salute event.

Thanks Karl

Thanks for the wonderful pictures as usual.

A particular thanks for the one below

Report & Pics: 21 Gun Salute Vintage Car Rally, 2017-care-renault.jpg

This was many a time my ride to LKG and UKG (1963-64 period)

This car was allotted to the Department of Health Government of Kerala along with a whole fleet of vehicles that was given to Government of India under the CARE assistance - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CARE_(relief_agency)

See the webshot of the original registration details from Kerala RTO website - before it was re-registered in Kerala it had a Delhi plate (I think the RTO registered it as 1964 the year of registration in Kerala - which is incorrect)

My Grandma - one of pioneering woman Doctors in south Kerala - was the Health Officer of Corporation of Trivandrum and this vehicle was one of her official rides then (she preferred the Willys Jeep as it was easier to go in to the back roads etc.)

It used to be white in colour with a big Care Logo on both sides of front doors. I am sure the other "older Trivandrumites" here will remember this car and its siblings (there were at least two Renaults including this besides a whole lot of Willyz Jeeps, at least one Willyz Wagoneer and some big special vehicles which were used a Mobile Clinics/Xray Units etc).

As an incentive to get a very reluctant Grandson to school yours truly was offered rides in a verity of cars of Grandfather/Uncles/Father and Renault was one of them and my favorite - as visibility out of the car for small child was much better somehow !

Karl who is having this Car now ? I think its a show piece now as the registration as it is has expired - when the vehicles were auctioned off probably (unless it has a registration elsewhere and the original number is retained only for show purposes)

Once again thanks for the nostalgia

Best Regards & Drive Safe

Ram

What a small world - and remarkable that you can recall so well. Some more pictures for you.

The car I think belongs to Kashyap in Delhi, and I think was advertised for sale, in case you are feeling nostalgic.
