Mitsubishi Cedia Sports performed very well by taking top honours at the Rally of Maharashtra, Round 1 of Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India’s (FMSCI) Speed Indian National Rally Championship (INRC) 2011. HM-Mitsubishi sponsored Team Overdrive. Rallyist Sirish Chandran put up an outstanding performance by finishing first in the category Group N (unmodified) 2000cc class and stood overall third. Of the 28 vehicles that took part in the rally, 11 cars were Mitsubishi Cedias.
“Winning the Group N class and finishing third overall in only our second season of rallying feels fantastic. All credit goes to our Mitsubishi Cedia Sports that worked like a dream. Not only was she amazingly quick throughout the weekend resulting in our victory margin being over three minutes but, more importantly, she soaked in the tremendous beating from the unforgiving tarmac without a single hiccup bringing us home safely and to the top step of the podium,” Mr. Chandran said.
The Speed Indian National Rally Championship has 5 categories viz. the Gypsy Cup, 1400 Star Cup, 1600-cc Group N, 2000-cc Group N (all Mitsubishi Cedias) and 2000-cc Group N+ (all heavily modified Mitsubishi Cedias). And finally there is the overall classification.
