Maruti Suzuki's Dakshin Dare 2014 all set to vroom in August

Maruti Suzuki is all set to kick-off its southern motorsports event Maruti Suzuki Dakshin Dare 2014 from August 4, 2014.

Currently in its 6th edition, the 'motoring rally', will begin on August 4, 2014 in Bangalore and conclude on August 9, 2014 in the beautiful beach
destination of Goa.

Traveling through the Southern Peninsula of India, it will cover exotic locales such as Mysore, Shimoga, Chitradurga, Davengere, Bellary, Hospet and Hubli, across almost 2,000 km.

"After successfully running the popular Raid de Himalaya and the Desert Storm motorsport events, Maruti Suzuki looked southward in 2009 for a new motorsport circuit to expand into. The unique possibilities that the landscape in the south offered made Dakshin Dare a real challenge, both for the racers and the organisers. This Dakshin Dare is all about the terrain, weather conditions and road surfaces that are unique to the south India. The monsoon conditions and marshy terrain surely add to the challenge and excitement.

For this year's Maruti Suzuki Dakshin Dare, we are expecting almost an increased number of participating teams, the largest ever till date. The event is eagerly awaited amongst the motorist circles, testing endurance in multiple terrains, while bringing the ultimate rallying experience," said Manohar Bhat, VP, Marketing, Maruti Suzuki.

Though the event is open to both men and women who have a keen interest in motorsports, it also welcomes young stars, raring to carve a name in adventure sports. Prior to the final leg of the rally, the participants and their vehicles will be put under strict scrutiny conditions and security checks. The selected participants will then be competing against each other in three categories - ultimate car category, ultimate bike category and endure category.
