"The vision of the event is to place India at the global tourism map as the most attractive country when it comes to vintage cars and heritage motoring history. "It aims at acquainting the youth with the rich heritage and culture of cars in India," Madan Mohan told reporters during the flag off. While showcasing the rich automotive heritage to the world, the rally also highlighted the social issue of "Save the Girl Child".
A percentage of the proceedings from the event will be given for the welfare and education of the girl child, the organisers said. The rally began from the historic Red Fort in Old Delhi in the morning. Passing through the capital's main attractions like Rajghat, Teen Murti Marg and the National Art Gallery, it culminated at noon at Gurgaon's Leisure Valley Park. On Sunday, the vintage cars will go around Gurgaon city as part of the two-day rally.
