Ga­gan does it again in JK Tyre Horn­bill Rally

Sportstar - - INDIAN PLAYGROUND -

The bro­ken ter­rain looked pretty tight and tricky but de­fend­ing cham­pion Ga­gan Sethi (co­driver Sa­bat­ul­lah Khan) played it sim­ple and safe to re­tain the ti­tle in the JK Tyre Horn­bill Rally, a TSD event for four wheel­ers, on De­cem­ber 3.

Ga­gan was de­lighted. “It’s my wed­ding an­niver­sary to­day and I want to gift this ti­tle to my wife. I am sure she will be thrilled as much as me,” he said.

Ini­tially, he was a bit scep­ti­cal about his vic­tory chances as there were a few oth­ers such as Bijo Awomi (co­driver Chan­drasekhar) and Tali Akang (co­driver Ni­rav Me­hta) who did their bit as well. It was the first two time con­trols that had the driv­ers go a bit crazy. Ob­vi­ously, they all had their fingers crossed for over three hours for the fi­nal re­sults but when it was out, Ga­gan re­joiced and so did his part­ner.

The raw ter­rain and the pic­turesque am­bi­ence of Arunachal Pradesh pro­vided the per­fect back­drop to ex­plore es­capades of the most chal­leng­ing or­der. The ac­tive pub­lic par­tic­i­pa­tion from both the masses and the me­dia had made this ven­ture an in­stant hit as well.

This will only en­cour­age young tal­ent in the re­gion to make the best use of their op­por­tu­nity to reach greater heights.
