Penny Lane’s Rally
On April 24th, Penny Lane Realty took part in the opening of the Moscow rally season in an event organised by the Classic Car Club.
The rally cars gathered on Vasilevsky descent from where over 50 crews in rare European, American and Russian cars, manufactured no later than 1979 ,drove off. The rally drew the attention of many Muscovites, motorists and others, who gathered to goggle at the retro, stylish cars.
Here, on Vasilevsky descent, Penny Lane Realty announced two future rallies which the company is going to support in the near future: the Rally of the SuperCars, on September, 25th, and the Classic Cars Rally on July 10th. Both rallies will be organised with the support of the Classic Cars Club.
All present could see the information on forthcoming rallies displayed on a bright orange 1953 VW Karmann Ghia branded specially for this event. The car was accompanied by two charming Penny Lane Realty employees stylishly dressed in retro-style clothes. The Volkswagen drew the attention of all present, including VIP’s, Evelinu Bledans, Pavel Derevyanko and Tatyana Vedeneyev, who took pleasure in being photographed by the car.
The rally cars passed down central Moscow streets, through a check-point in Stoleshnikov Lane where motorists had a short champagne break in the Royal Club boutique. Prizes were awarded to drivers and owners at the Marusya Bar & Restaurant and all were treated to a celebratory supper.
General Director of Penny Lane Realty, George Dzagurov, awarded a special prize: “For the will to win” to the crew of a 1970 Chevrolet Corvette, to Michael Ilyin and Inna Denisovoi. The team caused a stir when the driver’s assistant, the charming navigator Inna, courageously added water to the car’s radiator throughout the rally, enabling the car to make it to the finishing line. In a gift from Penny Lane, the Chevrolet Corvette team received an automatic rifle with an engraving “For the Defence of Style of a Legendary Epoch”.
“The opening of the rally season is a long-awaited sports event for true rally fans”, said George Dzagurov. “I personally deeply respect rally car fans and am always ready to support this kind of event. Our rallies which we plan to spend together with Club of Classical Cars on July 10th and on September 25th will be real entertainment and great events for all supercar and retro-car motorists and judges. We assure you that we will surprise motorists with our hospitality, high level of organisation and worthy prizes”.
