Maruti Vitara Brezza makes debut at 2016 Desert Storm Rally


Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.

Second rally that it participates since market launch.

The Maruti Vitara Brezza has taken part at Maruti’s Desert Storm Rally, which spans from the sand dunes and rocky terrains of Hanumanagarh, Bikaner, Jaisalmer, Jaipur to the sandy expanse of Jodhpur.

For the Desert Rally, the Vitara Brezza is being driven by Karthick Maruthi, who had also emerged as the winner of the National Super League Rally Championship with a yellow-and-white Maruti Vitara Brezza. He will be challenging last year’s winner, Aabhishek Mishra from Jaipur, who is driving the Maruti Suzuki Vitara in the rally.

This year’s Desert Rally will follow flexi-route format in the Xplore category [Delhi to Jaisalmer (Xplore Dawn) and from Jaisalmer to Jodhpur (Xplore Dusk)]. Both legs will run for 3 days and independent of each other. The objective of such a format is to provide short length rally exposure and encourage bigger participation.
