BANGALORE: The K1000 rally, the fourth round of the Speed Indian National Rally Championship (INRC), will commence at Siddlaghatta, near here, on Dec. 3. Adding extra importance to the three-day event is the fact that it is a candidate round of the Asia Pacific Rally Championship (APRC).
Bharath Raj, vice president of the Karnataka Motor Sports Club (KMSC), hoped the K1000 rally — now in its 36th year — would eventually be part of the APRC in 2012.
“There will be rigorous checks and tests before that,” he said. “We have addressed all issues the observer pointed out to us last year. Based on this year's performance, we may be a contender once again.”
The route is split into four stages, totalling 65 km in distance, with a Super Special Stage on the final day. The total distance of the rally itself is approximately 500 km.
Having won the last two rounds of the INRC, Naren Kumar of Red Rooster Racing, who drives a Mitsubishi Lancer Cedia in the 2000cc N+ category, currently leads the drivers' standings. The rally, concluding on Dec. 5, will also have two cars from Sri Lanka.
