The first round of Dakshin Dare saw the car compete in three special stages (dirt/gravel) with a total distance of 129 kilometres while the bikers covered a total distance of 86.42 kilometres for their special stages.

Gill, who finished on top of the first day, said that he was cautious about the track’s terrain and thus began slowly.

“We were not aware of the terrain and there was a lot of gravel on the tracks. I usually scorch the track but here i had to be cautious and slide through the corners rather than coming in fast,” he said.
