The Road to Mandalay
February 1 to February 24, 2015
This ambitious and ground breaking Endurance Rally Association event drove from Singapore to Burma. From the start at Raffles Hotel 70 crews drove a remarkable route that explored Malaysia & Thailand and entred Burma before finishing at Bagan after this 24 day adventure.
Following an initial approach by Lord Steel to the Burma Government, three years of discussion, planning and negotiation between the ERA and all the relevant authorities finally came to fruition in February 2015 with the first running of the ERA Road to Mandalay.
The event strated from Raffles Hotel, Singapore, and the route took in carefully researched roads with Time Trials in Malaysia and on into Thailand, then crossing into Burma to finish at Bagan after driving the Road to Mandalay. Vehicle shipping into Singapore and then out of Rangoon was be handled by Cars Europe, our recommended shippers.
This event was something the ERA wanted to organise for a very long time and the changes within Myanmar, with the country opening up to business opportunities and tourism, made this a practical proposition.
The Road to Mandalay offered the highly-memorable and unique experience of driving into Burma, a land that opened its borders specially for us. The route-plan included fascinating and interesting days experiencing remote and rural Malaysia, Thailand and Burma through the windscreen of a classic-car, venturing off-road for gravel and forest tracks through palm plantations and jungle-trails.
