Nice observation!
That car ran at the Desert Storm 2012 which is sponsored by Maruti and hence it had to have a Maruti Suzuki Sticker on it.

TML seems to be very aggressive on building up its brand recognition in the SUV category and get lot more youngsters as its customers.

Nice initiative.

Cheers

A bit OT here, but would like to ask the gurus a small query I have:

Is there some kind of insurance / sponsorship for the vehicles which participate in such events? Point in question is, how does the team / individual manage the expenses of a broken vehicle during expeditions?
Also, in case of a untoward incident of any physical injury to the participate, how is that handled? Through Personal Insurance or is there any special insurance just for the event?

It is open for all vehicles registered in India. Vehicles need to have rally insurance for the period of rally and drivers must have rally license.

Ok, but let me rephrase my question, is the terrain suitable for all types of vehicles or only SUVs?

Insurance is invalid for any kind of event or staged races like this. Any damage or thereof needs to be paid out of personal pocket. You can however get Rally Insurance which will cover primarily man than the machine. In untoward incident of a human being losing life, you are on your life insurance.

And that is why the race organisers will make you sign an indemnity Bond/Waiver/Claim before even allowing you to take part in the event.

The Trail shown in the Safari picture needs a 4X4.

Does the Sumo depicted in the second picture refer to a route that is do-able in a 4X2 or is this Sumo one of the "Pre Sumo Gold" versions that had a 4X4 option. The rallyists look like professionals, Helmets, Rally stickers Et All, so there is a fat chance, it could be a 4X4 Sumo.
