There is something about old-world and vintage cars that make enthusiasts swear by them. Their charm and the memories associated with such classic cars establishes a deep relation with their owners, irrespective of whether they are driving them by themselves or not.

And when it comes to driving in India, what can be a better example of a classic car than the Hindustan Ambassador (formerly known as the Morris Oxford)? Nomadic Knights is organizing a 2-week classic car rally early next year that will take participants across more than 2300 kms of an unforgettable journey.

The trip, named as ‘Best Exotic Classic Car Rally’ will commence on 14 February 2017 (Valentines Day) with dinner at the700 year old Neemrana Fort Palace.  Between 14 and 27 February, there will be 11 driving days. However, Rajasthan is not the only state to be covered. You will get to see the Taj Mahal as well. Also, do not form the impression that you will be spending your days and nights trying to drive the Ambassador on sand dunes of the Thar Desert. In Rajasthan, the cities of Jaipur, Jaisalmer and Jodhpur will be visited. Participants will get to stay in desert camps, go camel riding and will get to see many of the ancient forts and palaces for which Rajasthan is famous. They will also get the opportunity to go tiger spotting at Ranthambore. What is more, they will also get to stay the night in The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel where the movie ‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’ was filmed!
Participants are free to form groups as well as decide on a theme if they wish to. You can even bring stickers to make your car look really classic and exotic. As for yourself, you can even go for a fancy dress with wigs and just have fun! Meeting the locals of Rajasthan will also give you a memorable experience to be cherished for a lifetime!
