INTENSE heat, the dusty dunes and roaring engines – this sums up what lies ahead at the most anticipated motorsports rally set in the Thar Desert, Rajasthan.
2018 Maruti Suzuki Desert Storm is going to be beautiful, yet fierce. Let the beauty of landscape not mislead you in believing it to be just another country drive.
A land known for folk culture, camels, safaris and unending sand dunes, will soon witness an adrenaline rush with this reenergised 16th edition of the rally. An extreme test of mental endurance and physical fitness, the rallyists will battle against hostile proportions dodging tough terrains and inclement weather.
The struggle is real, when you watch a car helplessly making its way out of the sand. ‘Keep calm’ will be the mantra not just for the drivers, but also for the over-heating engines.
The action goes live on March 18, with an official flag-off at The Great India Place, Noida. Challenging newer terrains through the week, the journey will culminate in the Golden City of Jaisalmer on 23rd March to announce the ultimate champions.
