Maruti Suzuki flagged-off an all women car rally in Pune. Company is confident such initiatives will encourage more women participation in motorsports.

"Maruti Suzuki has been associated with motorsports for over 2 decades. Each year, we have seen increasing
interest from women motorsports enthusiasts. The women car rally is a good opportunity for women motorsport enthusiasts to gauge their preparedness for some bigger rallies - like Maruti Suzuki Raid-de-Himalaya, Maruti Suzuki Desert Storm and Maruti Suzuki Dakshin Dare. Besides, rallying teaches road discipline and helps us promote road safety. The driving skills like enhanced braking, skid correction, tackling multiple terrains etc which participants pick up during motorsport events like this rally, have an immediate impact on improving the safety during real time driving," said Manohar Bhat, Vice-President, Marketing, Maruti Suzuki.
