The Great Game Car Rally 2011
Salcombe to Mount Everest in a vintage Bentley
by Paul Markland
The 2011 Great Game Rally from Istanbul to Calcutta was organised by Conrad Birch and had 4 cars participating. This is the blog book of two of the participants David Moffatt and the author Paul Markland. They travelled in a 1936 Derby Bentley from Salcombe in England to the start in Istanbul and then completed the rally in Calcutta two months later. The route crossed Asia via Iran, Afghanistan and Tibet.
Since 1997 I have been involved in the world of Classic Car Endurance Rallying around the world. I have traveled to every continent and driven across most of them. That travel in a classic car has lead to a special relationship with a diverse variety of adults and children throughout the world. My travelogues are the stories of these adventures.
