The Gerrari Off Roaders duo, Kabir Waraich and Gurmeet Virdi made a valiant effort to make up for lost points after a dismal performance on Day Two. They finished the two stages in second position to score 216.75 points. They accumulated a total of 745.25 points to secure second position in the Championship.

Their Gerrari team-mates Sanbir and Padam Chauhan won the stages on Day Three, raking up 227.25 points.

Ujjal Namshum Chow and Aditya Mein from Arunachal Pradesh secured third in the Championship. Given the limited time they got to prepare their Gypsy for Rally and their relative inexperience, finishing P3 was indeed a commendable feat.

Meosing Namsoom and Tainum Mein won in the North East category, amassing a total of 680 points.
