Classic Car Club of Ceylon takes to the Hills for 25th Anniversary Celebrations

Classics at the British Car Day 2016

The Classic Car Club of Ceylon will be celebrating their 25th Anniversary in the Hills of Kandy and Nuwara Eliya, from the 9th-11th of September 2016. Dozens of classic cars will converge in the hills after taking a scenic drive from Colombo to Kandy.  culminating in a Heritage Hill Climb event held on the revered Mahagastota course.

Setting off from Colombo on the morning of the 9th, the event will provide a laid back opportunity for the owners of these motoring legends to take in the sights and sounds of the picturesque journey through to the mountains. The 10th morning will see the convoy of classics set off to Nuwara Eliya to tackle the Mahagastota Hill Climb. The Parade will also be showcased in the CCCC’s 25th Anniversary calendar, as too will further photography sessions for each participating vehicle.

Established in 1992, the Classic Car Club of Ceylon has long been the focal organisation that brings together people with a profound respect and love for classic cars. Boasting a membership of over 250 individuals, the club has established a reputation for consistently organising events that provide an innovative platform to showcase Classic Cars in Sri Lanka and exercise such vehicles within a safe environment. 

The club also plays an important role in networking its members, enabling them to interact and share knowledge and ideas in order to better preserve and maintain these masterful examples of automotive engineering and exchange tips on restoration. 

Additionally, by hosting such high-profile events, the CCCC aims to drive the love for classics by organizing public and educational events giving a wider audience access to the history and beauty of these cars.
