To celebrate Goa’s rich history of automobiles, Goa Tourism Development Corporation (GTDC) is organising the 2nd Edition of the Goa Vintage Bike and Car Festival. Aimed especially at vintage and classic car and bike owners (in addition to automobile aficionados in general), the event will display entries from Goa as well as from other parts of the country. The event has been curated by Ashvek Vintage World and is supported by the VCCFI (Vintage and Classic Car Federation of India).

 

Many fine examples of cars and bikes of that era and more will be on display at the Inox Courtyard – an iconic heritage structure that dates back to the 1800s. The venue offers some stunning vistas of the river Mandovi as it merges into the Arabian sea.

 

Over 50 motorcycles and over 65 cars are expected to participate (including entries from other states) turning this festival into a national event. In fact, around 20 entries are expected to drive in from Mumbai and Pune specifically to be a part of this event. The parade will be led by over 25 Harley Davidson Motorcycles HOGs Chapter of Goa.
 

The 2018 Goa Vintage Bike and Car Festival parade will be flagged off from Inbox courtyard on Sunday morning. It will then make it way through Campal, around the Miramar beach circle, back into Panaji, alongside the picturesque and world-renowned river promenade along the Mandovi en route to the Patto cruise boat pier and finally culminate at the starting point. All along the way, the rally will pass through scenic vistas and stunning heritage architecture while capturing a sense of the Goan joie de vivreAll motorcycles and scooters, Indian and imported, manufactured upto 1987 are eligible to participate.
