Held over a 103-kilometer route in and around the Capital city of New Delhi, the rally commenced from the Maruti Suzuki Head Office in Vasant Kunj. Crossing several city and upcountry roads including Mehrauli, Gurgaon, Damdama Lake, Sohna, it successfully concluded at the start venue- Maruti Suzuki Vasant Kunj office.

 

The participants were provided a road book with instructions regarding directions, distance and time. The navigator had to keep calculating the Time based on Speed and Distance figures given in the road book, accordingly guiding the driver on the speed at which the car is to be driven. (Formula used is Time = Distance / Speed.) The task was to remain within average speed, follow traffic rules, and navigate the route correctly while strictly keeping to the prescribed time. Hidden check points added to the thrill and excitement as an attitude of sportsmanship and the determination to win were evident in the finale.
