Will someone educate us on the rule change and what new mods are allowed?

Team MRF wooed Gaurav Gill to shift over and he did -- Thats the only reason Team JK suddenly quit the INRC . They probably arn't confident of being able to give Gill a tough fight . Which ever way you look at it , its sad coz Indian Rallying after a long gap had started seeing an upward swing in the number of entries in every round .

Also it leaves poor Naren and Vikram high and dry ... Lets wait and see what these guys decide . But Team JK shud R.I.P !!! And they are going around blaming MAI once again .....

BYE BYE JK ............

Pity. Just when the Indian Rally scene looked to have fairly stabilized.

I am quiet eager to know if JKtyres are really scared of GAURAV GILL pitted against them. It seems like it is indeed a big reason for this withdrawal decision.

And this is not the first time team JK is doing strange things.

Read some "press" statements where they insist its because of the money involved and lack of return on investment.

If JKs out, whos competing against whom!

Seems its just another statement to try and save face and cover up the actual reason for why they quit the INRC all of a sudden ... !!! Gill shifting over to MRF .. and thats the reason -- bottom line .

Guys, Thats the main reason why Gill switched over to Team MRF -- it was due to the chance of being offered a full drive ion the APRC ... !!! Sorry JK ,.,, u guys lost out ... haha

tats not the reason for JK to quite the fact is that Jk is officially outta rallying but they will be running their cars unofficially..... tats wut i got to hear from gaurav gill... !! JK IS quitting officially coz of FMSCI being thrown out... etc...etc... and its got nothign to do with Gaurav Gill shifting to MRF etc...! Gaurav and JK motorsport head are still excellent buddies...! So please can we stop spreading all these rumours... and cut out the masala from the story
