Gerrari Offroaders take dominant JK Tyre Xtreme 4Play win

Gerrari Offroaders took top honours in the JK Tyre Xtreme 4Play last weekend, the Chandigarh-based outfit successfully defending its 2017 title.

The 2018 edition of the event saw 15 teams go head-to-head in Punjab’s Kikar Lodge, India’s first private forest reserve.

Gerrari’s Kabir Waraich and Gurmeet Virdi, who have had plenty of success in RFC India as well as several off-road events organised by JK Tyre, won four out of six stages en route to a dominant win.

Ably assisted by navigators Yuvraj Tiwana and Kirpal Tung, they scored 569 out of a maximum of 600 points.

Waraich and Virdi started the event with victory in Friday’s Stage 1, which required them to simultaneously climb a hill from two sides with the help of a winch.

They carried their form to Saturday, winning three of the day’s four stages to build a sizeable lead in the standings.

Waraich and Virdy only faltered in Stage 3, which included a sharp descent of 80-85 degrees. The two failed to conquer this part of the stage and finished fifth.

However, it was a rare blip in an otherwise exceptional outing for the Gerrari duo, who wrapped up the win by topping the final water course on Sunday.

Bangalore Offroad Drivers’ Association’s (BODA), led by Satish Kumar and Madhusudan Reddy, finished second, while Cedrick Da Silva and Sameer Chunawala rounded up the podium slots for Team Fairmont.
