@informmaha, the rally headquarters is in Clarks Exotica. This is the place where the documentation, parc ferme and the SSS is held.
The actual special stages are at a distance of 53 kms from Clarks Exotica. Here we drive the three stages twice on saturday 20th Aug and once on sunday 21st Aug before returning to the rally HQ for the SSS.

If you are interested in watching the cars in action in the special stages, you can tag along some of the service crew or other spectators who will be at the stages.

To get pics of the cars in action the SSS on Sunday afternoon after 2PM is the best bet.
Hope the weather holds up, if not it is gonna be a really slushy K1000.

Since this will be your first event, I would suggest you visit Clraks on Sunday for the SSS. You will get to see all(well almost) the rally cars in action.

I'd been there to the K1000 rally today. Got a chance to witness these awesome machines in action once again, at the track in Clark's exotica. Gaurav Gill didn't win this round though, it was snapped up by an almost perfect Lohith Urs today with his Cedia sports. He simply set the track and the crowds on fire with his spirited drive. Thankfully the rain gods didn't play spoilsport. I managed to get a few videos on my mobile, I'll try to upload them here tomorrow

P.S - after the rally I caught up with none other than Sirish Chandran of overdrive fame, strolling around in casuals and sunglasses It was great to meet him in person and exchange a few words, pretty cool & chilled out guy.

GG won the rally, but not the SSS.

A video of the recce (recce=reconnaissance=pre-event trial of the stages to prepare pacenotes/navi's notes)



Will be uploading more videos of the stages shortly and link them here

Also did my bit of driving on loose stuff

Sirish Chandran is one of the contenders for the championship in the 2000 N category this year, he did not finish the rally though with a breakdown on day 2.

Yes Sir, I was referring to the SSS round itself GG was taking it easy to ensure a safe finish for team MRF, I was reading up on another site where he found it difficult to drive slow yesterday *lol*.

True, and the other OD car (Shailendra's) went bust when it crashed into the dirt at turn1, needed a tow out later.

I knew Sirish was amongst the rallyists but was a bit surprised to see him amongst the common audience yesterday

OT: Before/after the event I was looking around for T-BHP stickered cars in the parking lots but couldn't spot any

You said 'round', so did correct it to the SS stage. Even the SSS is accountable for the whole rally (K1000), which is the 4th round in the championship.

ZEN! Infact, on Day-1 we did the entire 3rd stage after the day's rally was finished, faar behind the marshalls but forgot to CAM it in the heat of the idea of doing he stage, where we were blessed with one near incident of sliding off the stage downhill sideways on very loose gravel surface in a negative camber fast right hander But yeah, a year long practice in RBR had fine polished my driving skills, over that section helped a lot in wading away with that!


Oh yeah, we also happened to spot one baleno being towed away as it had crashed badly by an *enthusiast while returning on day-1!

I reached the venue very late. Was just able to hear GG's Cedia roaring. I am sure the event was a treat for the eyes with all the slush.

Waiting for the pictures now!!

Congrats Raghuram/Balram for securing a position in 1600CC class.

Couldn't watch /attend the rally @BLR due to personal work.
So where and when is your next rally ?
