The Force Gurkha Rainforest Challenge (RFC) is around the corner and this year, 25 Indian teams will be competing for the event. While some teams have had experience in the previous editions, the rest are taking part for the first time.
Gerrari Offroaders from Chandigarh, Bangalore Offroaders Development Association (BODA), and KTM Jeepers from Kerala are participating with four teams each and Mumbai's Team Fairmont and Hyderabad's Charminar Off Road Adventure Club (CORAC) will have two teams each.
Commenting on the occasion, Ashish Gupta, the Founder and Chairman of Cougar Motorsport, the company that organises the RFC in India said, It is heartening to see the overwhelming response that we have received this year. With almost two months to go for the event, we have already closed entries."
"This year's list of Indian competitors is the best I could have asked for with a balanced mix of new talent, RFC India veterans and seasoned offroaders. I think this is a culmination of all the hard work that we have done and the goodwill we have earned since we launched the event in 2014."
