Round 2 of the Indian National Rally Championship was held in Coimbatore. Known to be windmill country and also extremely rough on cars. .
Right on the 1st stage itself I made an error on a "4 right tightens to 3" and went in too hot with @salrally and me getting stranded for 11mins. We were immediately out of contention. .
With nothing to lose we literally drove the wheels off our wagon and managed to clock in the 4th fastest overall time ! Absolutely blown away since I didnt expect to be that quick. 2nd rally in your life and the sort of grid of 64 cars and top calibre drivers... there's no way our car and I could have managed a top 10... but miracles do happen! .
We eventually drove so hard that the wheels did come off our car. Not once but twice! The first time we had to drive for 20kms on just one bolt holding the wheel in place and with 150mts to go, the wheel broke off the hub. Drove to service on 3 wheels. .
Eventually we had to DNF from our rally weekend. But we came away with a lot of positives, knowing that we have it in us to achieve that top 5! .
Our next round is in Jodhpur, Rajasthan, and we hope that I still have all your support to get me through this and to the podium.
