VCCI Rally in India


Standard 10 wins top prize in this prestige Indian Event!







 The winning crew and the Pennant (l-r  Sudeepto Banerjee, Mujeer Shaikh, and Karl Bhote.)


Just returned from the VCCCI vintage car and bike rally around a half an hour back...and as promised,  heres my Pennant (or 10 whichever name you want for Indian market cars) rubbing shoulders with American and European iron...and in one shot you can see my latest accquisition, also 1960, Fiat 1100, owned by my uncle for 40 years.

 

Sadly mine was the only Standard at the event.

Great news!

The rally that me and the pennant participated in that I told you about yesterday, well we took first place! We got the best performance award for the rally, attached is the winning crew and the pennant.  Needless to say, the car performed flawlessly for one last overhauled in the 70s, inspiring confidence to have a bit of fun and push her around with the excuse of making up lost time ;-)

Cheers!

Karl
