The 14th edition of Maruti Suzuki Desert Storm kicked off the three events this year on April 3, 2016 in Noida and concluded on April 10, 2016 in Jodhpur, Rajasthan.
The 2016 edition of Desert Storm witnessed record participation with more than 100 teams racing through the 2,000 km route.
After a nail-biting finish, at the rally's prize distribution ceremony in Jodhpur, Mr. Paintal said, "Mobil has always been synonymous with engine protection and performance, and has partnered leading automakers and award-winning race teams across the world - motorsports excites us as much as any enthusiast."
