Maruti Suzuki’s 7th edition of Dakshin Dare kicks off on Sunday, 2 August 2015

31 July 2015: The Maruti Suzuki Dakshin Dare rally will be flagged off on Sunday, 2 August 2015 from Bangalore and follow the Southern trail through Shimoga, Tumkur, Chitradurga, Bellary and Mangalore over six rigorous days, before concluding in Hyderabad on 7 August 2015.

Covering a distance of 2000 km in 5 legs, the rally is expected to be the most challenging ever with uneven rocky paths and occasional monsoon showers making it an arduous route to conquer. 120 teams will gear up to experience the ultimate thrill of motor sport this year.

After the success of Raid-de-Himalaya in the North and Desert Storm in the West, the idea of a Southern region challenge was born, and the first edition of Dakshin Dare rally happened in 2009.

This year, the winner of Autocross 2015 Den Thimmaiah is participating in Dakshin Dare for the first time with his Swift. All the selected participants will be competing against each other in 3 categories – Ultimate Car category, Ultimate Bike category and Endurance category.

Dakshin Dare 2015 will witness Suresh Rana, nine times winner of Raid-de-Himalaya and three times winner of Desert Storm competing against Sandeep Sharma and Varun Davessar, defending champions in the Extreme category along with Karthik Maruti and Sankar Anand, winners of the Endure category of Dakshin Dare 2014. It will also include women participant Bani Yadav who has to her credit past winning titles of Raid-de-Himalaya, Desert Storm and Autocross.
