Elevation and awesome cars are joining forces!

Rally Round, international rally experts, is heading the Trans-Himalayan Adventure starting on 20th April 2019, being called “Roof of the World.” This driving adventure will consist of 20 crews occupying a diverse set of vehicles that include classics, vintage cars, and off-roaders as they travel through China, Tibet, Nepal, and India. Basically, it’s a high-altitude expedition on the journey to the Himalayas. 

Rally Director Liz Wenman said, “We first visited the region in 2015 with the Thunder Dragon Rally but we are reaching new heights on this event. We have kept the entries limited due to the intense nature of the terrain as we head for the plateau of the Himalayas. This will be an unforgettable adventure for all involved.”

The 20 crews manning the cars will occupy seven vintage cars, including three Rolls-Royces – a 1925 40/50 Silver Ghost and two 25/30 models, one from 1938 and the other is a 1937 Coupe. David and Julia Little will be occupying their 1925 Bentley Super Sports, while John and Mary Reddington will be campaigning in their 1927 Nash Roadster. A pair of Alvis 4.3s will complete the vast line-up - the 1937 model owned by Michael and Anne Wilkinson and the 1938 Tourer of Martin Tacon.

“While other events have travelled along the southern foothills of the Himalayas, we will be crossing the range from north to south,” adds Liz. “Our route is not for the faint-hearted – crews will drive at high altitude and tackle astonishing roads and mountain tracks as they visit the magical city of Lhasa, the lost Western Tibetan Kingdom of Guge, sacred Mount Kailash and Everest Base Camp.The other vehicles differ in type and age, and include quite a few 4x4s. 

“Along the way we will experience unimaginably beautiful landscapes, rare wildlife and amazing cultural sites ranging from ancient ruins to stunning temples and monasteries.”
