The 5th leg of Maruti Suzuki National Super League TSD Rally Championship 2016 is all set to begin from India’s most pristine and least explored state, Arunachal Pradesh from December 14-17, 2016.

The rally will cover approximately 700 kms, passing through dense forests, steep hills and snow-capped peaks crossing Itanagar, Pasighat and Dambuk.

To add to the enthusiasm, the rallyists will also be able to witness the Orange Festival of Adventure and Music at Dambuk.

The championship is a combination of six different rallies namely Uttarakhand Rally, Deccan Rally, Backwaters Rally, Mughal Rally, Rally of Arunachal, Rally of Gujrat and offers a chance to more and more amateur rallysts to participate in motor rallies.
