The Mahindra Monsoon Challenge, a three-day TSD (time, speed, distance) rally, will be flagged off here on Thursday. Thirty cars from the Mahindra stable will travel 1,200km with scheduled stops at Mangalore, Shimoga and Goa. Both professional and amateur drivers will compete in this third edition of the rally.

At a press conference on Wednesday, it was announced that a medical team would be on stand-by throughout the rally in case of any emergency. Race cars will be provided for rent to drivers from other cities who may find it cumbersome to transport their personal vehicles here.

Apart from the professional drivers’ category, entries have also been received for the couple, women, corporate and novice categories.
