Dambuk Village (Arunachal Pradesh),17th December 2017::Overnight leaders Gerrari Off-roaders from Chandigarh proved to be the most accomplished team in the JK Tyre-Orange 4x4 Fury, clinching the coveted title and the winners’ prize purse of Rs 2.5 lakh with ease here on the third and final day on Sunday.
Kabir Waraich and Gurmeet Singh proved to be in a different league, excelling on each of the three days to amass 514.5 points to win the title.
Association of Off-roaders from Nagaland (AON) mustered 398.5 points to take the second place while home team MOCA grabbed the third position to round off a sensational show for the North-Eastern teams.
Gerrari’s Kabir and Gurmeet were ably assisted by co-drivers Yuvraj Tiwana and Dushyant Khosla as they worked brilliantly as a team to surge ahead on the second ahead day itself.
The Nagaland team was well served by Angulie Vupru and Sathish Kumar (drivers) and Neiketoulie Meyase and Yanren Jamio (co-drivers).
MOCA had Miranjeet Choudhury and Tsengtsing at the helm while Purbajyoti Choudhury and Jeninder Mantaw worked in tandem with them.
Gerrari stumbled just a little on Day 2, slipping to the fifth place in one of the stages. But they were unbeatable in all other five stages to be crowned unchallenged kings.
On Sunday, the competitors had to grapple with two tough stages. In the Bush Man, their cars had to first climb some wood logs, get into the river and drive to the jungle and come back into the river and finish all in 20 mins.
In the final stage, Showman, they had to tackle a man-made gradient which was twelve feet high followed by a sharp drop down. It was all about the right technique and precision.
Kabir Waraich and Gurmeet Singh showed nerves of steel and great control to comfortably win these stages too.
About JK Tyre Motorsport:
JK Tyre has always been closely associated with the world of sports. Almost three decades back the company laid down a long term and sustained approach to promote Motorsport.
Participating in this form of the sport has helped the company in continuously updating its products to meet the challenges of gruelling Indian conditions. The sport at that time in India was perceived for elite but JK Tyre took upon itself to package and redesign the sport to suit the masses. The company not only made the sport affordable but also equivalent to International operating standards. JK Tyre’s foray into Motorsport was a well thought out strategic decision to not only use and develop this virgin branding platform but also to realize the dreams of making India a force in the field of motor sport.
In 2011, the company acquired the Formula BMW Series and rechristened it as the JK Racing Asia Series (JKRAS). With this acquisition, JK Tyre created history in Indian Motorsport by becoming the first Indian company to acquire an FIA accredited series. By taking over the series, JK Tyre promises to utilize it as a platform to encourage and support the world’s best racing drivers and promote India as one of Asia’s motorsport capitals.
Thus, JK Tyre has conquered two steps in the motorsport program where the new racing aspirants first establish themselves in India, then graduate to Asian level i.e. to Formula BMW, which is now JKRAS and then they move to higher levels of racing. JK Tyre now stands closer to achieving its mission of bringing world-class motorsport to the Indian masses. The Racing and Karting programme by JK Tyre has been the breeding ground for the country’s motorsporttalents like Narain Karthikeyan, Armaan Ebrahim, Karun Chandhok, Aditya Patel and other emerging talent.
Another pioneering initiative was the launch of the Truck Racing Championship in India in partnership with Tata Motors. The company developed & designed “JetRacing”-the new generation truck racing tyres especially for this application. With this, JK Tyre became the first tyre company to produce truck racing tyres in India. The combination of the Prima trucks fitted with Jet Racing received an overwhelming response from participants and has definitely brought in a revolution in the Indian racing scenario.
