The success of the first Myanmar Burma Road Classic, in 2014, made this second edition even more special. The idea was to offer the same highlights as the first event, but while taking in new and even more remote roads within the country. More than 70 percent of the roads taken were new this year, but the highlights of Bagan, the Inle Lake and Mandalay were kept, while new places like the rubies market, the mines of Mogok, the beaches in the South and the delta region for the Irrawaddy River were added. All in all a fantastic journey to a fascinating, varied and rich land—Myanmar!
Participants came from all over Europe, with one Mercedes coming across the border from Thailand. The 18-day discovery rally started in the city of Yangon. With 10 cars on the roster, this year was more of a classic car rally with Mustangs, an XK140 Jaguar, a Citroën DS convertible, a Mercedes 190 and even a 1970 Bentley.
