Mahindra Adventure’s Gaurav Gill clinched his fifth MRF-FMSCI Indian National Rally Championship trophy, speeding away to a grand victory in the MRF 43rd K-1000 Rally on Sunday (January 21, 2018). The three-time APRC champion won all the five Special Stages without having to look too much into his rearview mirror. He recorded an overall timing of 00:55:41.6 minutes, almost three minutes ahead of the second finisher, to take his final tally to a perfect 100 points.

Gill, along with co-driver Musa Sherif (110 points), has been unbeaten in the MRF INRC 2017, romping home in each of the four rounds that he had taken part in. He missed Round 4, the Rally of Chikmagalur, as it coincided with his assault on the APRC, but that didn’t stop him from winning the championship.
