Chennai: About 60 cars filled with women, both in the driver’s and passengers’ seats, took off on a ride on early Sunday morning as part of the JK Tyre Duchess Club women’s car rally.

Bit of glamour

Actor Dhanush and wife Aishwarya flagged off the rally.

Actor Suhasini Mani Ratnam, who is a member of the Duchess Club, also cheered for the women drivers.

Several of the cars were creatively decorated on the theme of protecting the planet. One car had green creepers swathed around it and another had stickers pasted with eco-friendly messages on it.

Some of the drivers and passengers also got into the spirit of the rally by wearing T-shirts with awareness slogans. The teams had fun names such as ‘Vivacious grand-moms’ and ‘Aqua girls.’

The rules of the ‘1 hour, 57 minutes’ rally stipulate that the women follow specified directions in terms of speed, distance and the route. They also filled a questionnaire about landmarks along the route.
