New Delhi, December 6th, 2015: Polaris India Pvt. Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Polaris Industries Inc., the world leader in off-road and All-Terrain Vehicles (ATV), is once again all set to participate in the 5th edition of the Royal Rajasthan Rally 2016 in Rajasthan, one of the most demanding off-road rallies in the world. Second year in a row, Polaris India is also the titled sponsor of the event. The rally will be held from 7th - 10th January, 2016 and will be called Polaris Royal Rajasthan Rally 2016.
Speaking about Polaris’ participation in the Royal Rajasthan Rally 2016, Mr. Pankaj Dubey, Managing Director, Polaris India Pvt. Ltd., said, “Sponsoring our superlative vehicles and supremely abled drivers has given us confidence of trumping this year. Previous held RRR events have been extremely tough and stimulating. This year is going to be even more challenging and exciting. Our flagship RZR®s are designed for high durability and low maintenance qualities in such events and have emerged as the preferred vehicle by rally enthusiasts all around. For the first time, we have three women participants- Ashima Kaushik, Khyati Mody and Smitha Prasad taking part in the rally. I wish the Polaris team the very best for the event.”
In its fifth edition, the Royal Rajasthan Rally is divided in two categories: Adventure and Extreme. Adventure (TSD) will span over 4 days running through approximately 1000 kms. The rally will span through desert with night halts at regal palaces and end at Jaipur. Navigation skills along with vehicle capability will be put to test in the ‘Mind & Metal’ challenge. In RRR –Extreme category, the challenge has been upped. The vehicle and driver’s abilities will be tested to the utmost through 1000 kms of harsh travelling with close to 450 kms of extreme competitive sections. This year, for both the categories, an additional 250 kms have been added to further test the grit of man and machine as compared to last year’s rally distance of 750 kms.
The Polaris Off Roader 2015 is an effort to connect with the adventurous Indian youth and also to promote the off-road culture in India.
