Pune-based commercial vehicle
manufacturer Force Motors announced that Kabir Waraich, a seasoned off-roader
has now joined forces with Team Gurkha for the Force Gurkha RFC India 2016.
Kabir along with his navigator Gagan Sachdeva, will represent Force Motors and
will drive the Force Gurkha in this years’ off roading event being held in Goa
from July 22 to July 29, 2016.
Force Gurkha has been the
winner of the Top Two Positions in both the first and second edition of the
Rain Forest Challenge India- 2014 and 2015. Force Motors brings back its
winning team led by Tan Eng Joo from Malaysia, who returns to defend the top
spot with his navigator Tan Choon Hong. The second Force Gurkha will be piloted
by Mervyn Lim and will have Hamizan Abdul Hamid as the navigator. This team
will look to defend its Runners-Up title and will vie for the top spot in RFC
The third team will be led by
Kabir Waraich and his navigator Gagan Sachdeva. Thirty-three-year-old Kabir is
a veteran off roader and is a part of the Gerrari Off-Roaders based out of
Chandigarh. He was the top Indian driver and has bagged the third position in
the Force Gurkha RFC India 2014 and 2015 consecutively. In 2014, he was the first
Indian to ever compete in the RFC Malaysia-the mother event.
In the meantime, Force Motors
retains the tough Gurkhas fielded during RFC India 2015 which have been a game
changer in the decisive Predator and Twilight stages. The powertrain continues
to be the proven Mercedes-Benz-derived TD 2200 common rail engine developing
140 hp and 320 Nm torque. The front and rear suspension is still an all-coil
spring set-up with long travel shock absorbers. These vehicles are equipped
with 37inch Maxxis Trepador tyres, which make them look formidable.
