Pakistan Army is going to organise a car rally from October 21 to October 31 to commemorate the country’s 70th year of independence, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) announced on Wednesday.
The rally, dubbed as “Pakistan Motor Rally”, will include over 300 jeeps, 500 bikes and 150 vintage cars drawn from 23 motor clubs across the country.
“Originating from Khunjrab, passing through Gilgit, Islamabad, South Waziristan, Quetta and Karachi the rally will culminate at Gwadar covering more than 3,000km,” the military’s media wing said in a statement.
“The routes/areas selected for the rally are relatively less visible, developed with extraordinary efforts and serve as seeds of prosperity for Pakistan,” it added.
According to ISPR, the Pakistan Motor Rally is scoped to cover the entire “length and breadth” of the country to “promote adventure sports, showcase tourism potential, cultural heritage and sports talent, network piecemeal and scant clubs dealing with the motor sports and to encourage vintage preservation in Pakistan.”
