The rally initially started with 15 cars from Karachi, which was joined in with more cars from Lahore and Islamabad. Among the classic cars was a two-seater 1992 model Mercedes car especially gifted by the Amir of Qatar to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on the occasion of inauguration of the Motorway in Pakistan.

According to tour operator Zahoor Durrani, all the cars in the rally were of British-origin. He said the rally was much appreciated as it provided the people an opportunity to see the British era cars. “Such events are much needed to promote tourism and healthy activities, especially at a time when terrorism has brought life to a standstill,” he added.
