The south chapter of the Force Gurkha RFC India 2016 have completed, with rally legend Jagat Nanjapa achieving first place in the off-roading challenge event
After the completion of the north chapter of the Force Gurkha RFC India 2016 last week, the south chapter have also completed now. Off-roading rally expert Jagat Nanjapa along with Chethan (co-driver) has achieved podium finish in the inaugural south chapter of the RFC India 2016 event. Nanjapa, who is an experienced rallyist, is also a nine time winner of the Indian National Rally Riders Championship. Nanjapa and Chethan, representing the V5 Offroaders of Coorg, have been able to achieve an overall score of 525 out of 600 points. The south chapter was held for two days, comprising of rigorous stages with six extremely tough sections or Special Stages (SS). With 11 teams participating in the south chapter of the RFC India 2016 challenge, it was an extreme test of driver skills, coordination, patience, and recovery techniques under extreme off-road conditions.
The winner of the south chapter, Jagat Nanjapa, will be offered the second wild card entry to the mother event which will be held from 22nd July to 29th July in Goa. Tejinder Pal Singh from Gerrari Offroaders Chandigarh is the winner of the north chapter of RFC India 2016, and will also be participating at the main event in Goa.
Speaking about his achievement, Jagat Nanjapa, member of V5 Offroaders of Coorg, said, “It was a superb experience. Certain obstacles that we did in a few Special Stages were completely new experiences for us. They made us push our vehicle to its limit and also made us realize that a lot of upgrade is required on our Jeep to make it ready for the Goa event. Apart from vehicle modification, I am also going to work on my physical fitness over the next few months to be completely ready for the competition ahead.”
The Force Gurkha RFC India is part of the international Rainforest Challenge of Malaysia. The Indian leg of the Rainforest Challenge is owned by the Delhi-based Cougar Motorsport Pvt Ltd. The company feels that with such events like the north and south chapters, the off-roading sport will receive further publicity, which in-turn will attract more participants in the future events.
