Himalaya Classic Rally set to Drive Bhutan - 2007 Event Enters New Territory

The Himalaya Classic Rally, March 9 to April 9 2007, has confirmed that it will be the first ever international car rally to drive through Bhutan, one of the most secretive kingdoms in the Himalayas.

Starting in Udaipur, the 2007 Himalaya Classic Rally roars into life on March 9 2007, and will be flagged off by His Highness Arvind Singh Mewar, the Maharana of Udaipur. The event is a 5,000km, month-long tour-de-force through some of the most outstanding scenery in the world, following the roads trodden by travellers over thousands of years. The finishing line for the rally is Calcutta, the most original and best preserved of all the great Indian cities.

One of the last great motoring adventures still to be experienced, the Himalaya Classic Rally winds its way from Royal Rajsathan, through the Himalayas to the kingdom of Nepal. From there the adventure continues to Darjeeling, the tea capital of the world, and into the secretive state of Bhutan, one of the great unexplored areas of the sub-continent. Special dispensation has been negotiated to allow the rally to drive through this beautiful state.

The rally promises a fantastic journey, taking in the many different cultures of India as well as the incredible scenery. Although a long distance event, the days are carefully structured to allow time to take in the sights which include a visit to The Golden Temple in Amritsar, famous hill stations of the Raj era as well as such exotic excursions as tracking a tiger on elephant back.

Commenting on the event, organiser John Brigden, said, “This is one of the truly great undiscovered journeys providing a rich mixture of cultures, colour, history and adventure. It’s a privilege to drive these roads, meet the people and take in the ancient scenery which provides a magnificent backdrop to the rally.”
