Maruti Suzuki Raid De Himalaya is not just another rally next door. It is considered as one of the toughest off road rallies around the world. The modern day ‘agni pariksha’ is not just a test of endurance, but plays more of a symbolic relation between a driver and his machine.

Ten times Rain winner, Suresh Rana, speaks about his vehicle preparation for the competition “Raid is all about the synchronicity between a driver and his vehicle. One has to know their vehicle in and out to brave any unexpected twist and turn in the route. At the end, it is not only about physical endurance, but mental endurance as well. Most importantly, one must put all the efforts in vehicular safety, including all the safety harness and gears.”
