Another day for CCC members at Pannala

Members of the Classic Car Club of Ceylon were treated to a memorable Classic Challenge Pannala member’s drive-and-stay recently.

In addition to the club’s familiar faces, the Classic Challenge Pannala 2018 was honoured this time by the presence of six participants from the Federation of Historic Vehicles of India (FHVI) -the Indian arm of the esteemed Fédération International des Véhicules Anciens (FIVA)-joining a club event for the first time.

“The Classic Challenge Pannala 2018 has been the perfect way to mark a weekend of motoring with our members”, said Ramani Ponnambalam - President of the Classic Car Club of Ceylon- speaking at the awards ceremony. “Not only have our members been given yet another opportunity to interact with one other, but also for the first time, to interact with and exchange

individual expertise with our esteemed guests from FHVI”.

The Classic Car Club of Ceylon was founded in 1992 with the intention of bringing together individuals across Sri Lanka interested in preserving and enjoying all types of vintage automobiles.

In addition to exclusive events such as the member weekends, the club also actively invests in sharing the love of these automobiles by organizing various events and participating in larger shows to educate the public rolling out its hot rods with the intention of showcasing the vehicles that roamed the streets in the decades of yore.
