    Entries to the Mercedes-Benz Classic Car Rally (MBCCR), among the most prestigious of its kind in Asia, are full. The number of entries and the rapidity at which they came in is more proof of the rising interest in classic Mercedes cars in the country. The ninth edition of the rally will be held on November 19 and 20 at the Taj Lands End in Bandra, Mumbai.

    The event, which was first held in 2014, has since then catalysed interest and engagement with classic Mercedes automobiles among collectors across the country. The number of classic Mercedes-Benz cars restored each year is growing exponentially, and at this year’s edition, all classic generations of the C, E and SL range and every generation of the S-Class are being displayed.

    A majority of cars at the show this year have gone through major restoration recently. Acclaimed restorer Allan Almeida, who is based in Mumbai, has alone worked on six rare classic Mercedes- Benzes in the past 12 months, a huge number for any individual restorer. The MBCCR has also garnered a large number of spectator entries and the shortlisted individuals will be hearing from the organisers soon.

    The MBCCR 2022 will also have a viewing gallery at the Bandstand Pantry, which is located on the rally route. Watch this space for a contest that could provide you a great vantage point while sipping on coffee and wholesome snacks at the gallery on the big day.
