Aston Martin, Dodge and other classics along with a cavalcade of Sunbeam, Norton and other motorcycles of good old days are all set to meander through the terrains of Aravali hills as well as the city during a vintage motor rally on Saturday.
A 1922 model of Aston Martin which was used by the prince and princess of Bikaner, and a Dodge-1922 used by a royal family in Orissa will be among the caravan of more than 50 cars and 15 motorcycles during the rally.
The rally organised by the National Heritage Motor Club (NHMC) will be flagged off in two parts by member of Kashmir royalty Kumar Ajatshatru Singh.
In the first leg, the race will begin from Delhi Flying Club and reach Gurgaon via NH-8 toll plaza which has a dedicated lane for the event.
The fleet of wheel heritage will be welcomed at the newly-launched restaurant '21 Gun Salute' where 15 automobile masterpieces will join the caravan and manoeuvre through Mehrauli, Bristol Hotel, Sector 56, Jalvayu Vihar, Ardee City and Gold Souk to reach their final destination at Sector 29 market.
"At the '21 Gun Salute', 15 cars owned by Madan Mohan will join the rally in the evening," one of the members of the organising club said, adding that the car owners and their guests can also participate in the event.
"Every car has a designated driver who will drive the participants in the rally," he added.
The event will be culminated with a light and laser show and a live performance by Fusion music band.
"The 21 gun salute was the highest form of honour given during the era of the British and the Maharajas. I give the same honour to my customers," said Mohan. Complete with a collection of royal vintage cars, the traditional cuisine is also sure match for the place.
