The Gerrari team of Kabir
Waraich, Harmanpreet Singh, Gurmeet Virdi and Kirpal Tung led at the end of Day
One before surrendering the top position to the BODA squad comprising
Prashanth, Rohit, Pradeep Kumar and Achyutha who topped the leaderboard going
into the final day.
However, the fortunes
fluctuated in the exciting “Show-off Man” Stage that comprised a course of five
man-made obstacles. While the Gerrari team tackled the course with aplomb, the
BODA foursome got stuck in the ditch crossing and the final rock climb near the
finish point which incurred them too many penalty points.
So much so that the second
Gerrari team of Gursahib Singh, Padam Chauhan, Dushyant and Gurvinder Singh
grabbed the second spot, pushing the Bengaluru quartet to third spot.
The entire competition ran
smoothly and despite a couple of mishaps when the vehicles toppled, the
competitors walked away unhurt, highlighting the safety measures.
Chow Kemtsing and Chow
Sujeewan took the honours in the North-East category while the honours in the
Quad section went to Hage Bitu and Jitu Kalita.
