The Rickshaw Run - FAAR HIYAR

Postby The Stig » Thu Feb 18, 2016 12:47 am

There are many motor events and Autocross Rallies but we as humans tend to forget the humble (still mean :mrgreen: ) machines that help in our everyday life. An auto Rickshaw, Yes you read it right an Auto-rickshaw. They seem to be nowhere when you really want them and they seem to be everywhere when you never wanna travel at all, Seems like they are followers of rajikanth :lol:

A bunch of Adventure junkies try to take this up as a challenge and land up in India. It is just a three wheeler version of "The Amazing Race", A common start and finish line with self navigation and the diversity of terrain and other factors in the Indian sub-continent it is truly a nerve wrecking competition.

The aim is to find your own path, Repair your auto that breaks down every 5 minutes, travel huge distances with a three wheeled wonder, Fall on every corner where the auto rolls due to its advanced international tech gizmos and features. The event takes some days to get over without any proper local help or no clue of the route to be traveled it is indeed a very tough adventure.

There are three routes:

    > Shillong to Cochin - 3,500km - 3 weeks(August)
    > Cochin to Jaisalmer - 2,500km - 2 weeks(January)
    > Jaisalmer to Shillong - 2,700km - 2 weeks(April)


It does not end there you can customize your auto to look like a mean machine and add all the bling bling to make it like a pop star from the 80's and the 90's :P .

The event is definitely fun filled and adventurous but one needs to note that many injuries have taken place and an auto needs to be tamed just like a clown tames a lion :D . Be it a stunt in Bollywood movies or a romantic song the auto exists everywhere (unless you need to go somewhere :P).
