The Mahindra Adventure teammates were at their dominating best in the first round, grabbing the first two positions and gliding to the top of the table.

Gaurav Gill, who finished 12th (RC2 cars) in the Finland round of the World Rally Championship last month, will begin as a firm favourite along with co-driver Musa Sherif. He claimed nine out of the 10 stages in the season-opening round to underline his class.

Round 2 promises to be an exciting affair, with FMSCI President Akbar Ebhrahim set to take part as a guest driver for VW Motorsport.  The former racing star will be making a grand comeback, competing in a rally car after nearly 25 years. 
“We welcome Akbar into the fray. “It will spice up the competition,” he added.” RRPM’s Arindam Ghosh said.
