Kabir Waraich and Gurmeet
Singh proved to be in a different league, excelling on each of the three days
to amass 514.5 points to win the title.
Association of Off-roaders
from Nagaland (AON) mustered 398.5 points to take the second place while home
team MOCA grabbed the third position to round off a sensational show for the
Gerrari’s Kabir and Gurmeet
were ably assisted by co-drivers Yuvraj Tiwana and Dushyant Khosla as they
worked brilliantly as a team to surge ahead on the second ahead day itself. The
Nagaland team was well served by Angulie Vupru and Sathish Kumar (drivers) and
Neiketoulie Meyase and Yanren Jamio (co-drivers).
MOCA had Miranjeet Choudhury
and Tsengtsing at the helm while Purbajyoti Choudhury and Jeninder Mantaw
worked in tandem with them.
Gerrari stumbled just a little
on Day 2, slipping to the fifth place in one of the stages. But they were
unbeatable in all other five stages to be crowned unchallenged kings. On the
final day, the competitors had to grapple with two tough stages. In the Bush
Man, their cars had to first climb some wood logs, get into the river and drive
to the jungle and come back into the river and finish all in 20 mins.
In the final stage, Showman,
they had to tackle a man-made gradient which was twelve feet high followed by a
sharp drop down. It was all about the right technique and precision. Kabir
Waraich and Gurmeet Singh showed nerves of steel and great control to
comfortably win these stages too.
