Flagging off the rally, Tarun Garg, Senior VP - National Sales & Network, Maruti Suzuki said, "Pioneered in 2009, Dakshin Dare is our effort to provide the thrill of off-road rallying experience to motorsport enthusiasts in South India. Dakshin Dare is a recipe of thrill, beauty, cars, talent, twists and turns. It challenges motorsport enthusiasts to achieve greater milestones in their motorsport journey. At Maruti Suzuki, we believe that rallies bring out the best in men and machines, and the increasing participation each year is encouraging and helps us strengthen such motorsport events."
The rally divided into three categories - Endurance, Ultimate Car and Ultimate Bike.
The rally route is dotted with tarmac and uneven rocky paths. Expected rains along the route will make it even more grueling.
Participants are provided clearance for their vehicles after a strict one day scrutiny which includes various safety checks.
