Default Adventure racing on auto-rickshaw

You can watch Curry in the Hurry and Tamil Devils among other teams in 1000 km Indian Auto Rickshaw challenge from Chennai to Kanyakumari. More details are at

Funnily, out of 16 teams only two are Indian.

I think to make the race interesting, the organizers should part tons of
vehicles in all possible positions and lets auto drivers drive in an innovative way all around those obstacles, something they do everyday anyway.
