Coast to Coast


Scenes of Classic India

In October 2019, we will be flying to Southern India for our brand new Classic India. Participants will start in Chennai on the east coast and finish in Cochin on the west coast. Along the way they will drive across hot arid plains and up and over the Western Ghat mountains, visiting wild life reserves, old British hill stations and tea plantations, passing through some of India’s most beautiful scenery.

It’s a fabulous trip, the memories of which will last a lifetime. Imagine telling your grandchildren about the time you motored over the mountains in India, fighting off tigers and snakes. I sincerely hope you’ll join us.


History of the event

In 2006 we ran the first Classic India in which participants drove Hindustan Ambassadors, which are essentially Indian built Morris Oxfords. We ran the event each year until 2017. The Ambassadors are now very difficult to source so we have decided to start using modern vehicles. At the same time we are slightly altering the route keeping the best bits of the old Classic India but adding new sections. The tour will now run from Coast to Coast. We will start on the beach and finish on the beach.

As with all our journeys there is no competitive element. Each tour is typically made up of 15 vehicles with each couple provided with a route book which is clear and easy to follow. I have a wonderful team supporting me and we all work very hard to ensure you have an unforgettable time.

The itinerary for the new trip is not yet finalised. As soon as it is full details will be published on the website. We look forward to welcoming you to India next year.
