Those were some breathtaking pictures..very professionally taken.

Can you also mention what bikes they were riding. Looked like most were RX135s but it was hard to tell. Curious to know how the 4 strokes fared.

Also please explain how the riders find their way without a navigator or tulip.

There no comparison between 2strokes & 4strokes. The 4strokes are absolutely boring both for the Riders as well as spectators. No Speed, No Noise. None of the spectators would be there to watch the poor 4stroke riders. And entry wise out of 45 bikes 32(26 RX135 /6shogun/shaolin) were 2strokes.
God save the 2stroke riders as they will no longer be able to participate in any Championship events from this year.
The riders are give 2 rounds of Recce before they start the rally.

hi sujith,
above mentioned means that there is no 2stroke events this year.

Yes,no National Championship Rallies or Racing etc.May be you can participate in Club/Local events only.
But we'll not let the 2strokes down,we'll be conducting a Regional Stage Rally Series where 2strokes will be included.

Absolutely superb pictures joshuasam400 !!

If only every rally event in india had coverage of this quality im sure it would help to make a change in generating more interest in the sport.

cheers,

Joshua these pics are fantastic man. Did you guys notice the perfect examples of high side and low sides??? Mr. Rossi (pics 5,6,7,8,9 from the top) had that high side. Great fotographs. Thank you these made my day! They should have a lot of these events. I also hope the participants get some sponsors towards improving their protective gear. Saw a couple of guys wearing jeans (don't blame them, cause protective gear is expensive important none the less).
