Brace yourselves, enthusiasts in Mumbai: the Parx supercar rally is finally making a return this year, with the last edition held in 2015. First held in 2008, the rally has witnessed some of the city’s most delicious supercars turn up in droves. This time around, though, there’s a twist. Mixing it up with the supercars will be a big collection of superbikes, vintage cars and vintage bikes, to mark the Western India Automobile Association’s 100th anniversary.
To be held on February 8, 9 and 10, the 2019 Parx supercar and vintage car rally will witness a total of 400 vehicles – 100 supercars, 100 superbikes, 100 vintage cars and 100 vintage bikes. While Gautam Singhania, chairman and managing director, Raymond Ltd, kept his cards close to his chest, we understand that two of the major attractions at this year’s rally will be his McLaren Senna and LaFerrari, which will be leading a range consisting of Lamborghinis, Maseratis and other high-performance cars. Among attractions in the vintage car section will be the Benz Patent Motorwagen replica, along with a 1896 Ford and a 1903 Humber Humberette.
On February 8 and 9 (from 9am to 6pm), all the vehicles will be on display at the MMRDA Grounds, BKC, for enthusiasts to come and take a look, while the rally will be flagged off on February 10 at 11:30am. The cars will take the Bandra-Worli Sea Link, pass Worli Sea face and Haji Ali, and then move to Marine Drive and finally ending at Ballard Estate at around 1pm.
