The event aims to unite adventure enthusiasts, offering them a platform to test their JIMNY’s capabilities, conquer challenging terrains, discover their passion for off-roading, and create lasting memories. The recently concluded North Zone qualifying leg witnessed overwhelming participation in Delhi and Chandigarh.

Mr. Shashank Srivastava, Senior Executive Officer, Marketing & Sales, Maruti Suzuki India Limited, expressed his enthusiasm about the event, “At Maruti Suzuki, we strive to offer top-tier SUVs to our clientele and cultivate a community of avid drivers who crave adventure and discovery.

The championship is structured in two phases – qualifiers, organized across eight cities, and a grand finale in Goa. It allows JIMNY owners to participate in two categories – stock vehicles and modified vehicles. Participants are required to complete eight challenges, referred to as Special Stages (SS), over two days of the competition. These stages are designed to test participants’ off-road driving skills, vehicle familiarity, and physical abilities.

An independent panel of supervisors, comprising seasoned members from the Indian off-roading community, judges the participants. One winner from each category will progress to the grand finale, set to take place in Goa on the 23rd of March, 2024. The top two winners of the ‘ROCK N’ ROAD 4X4 Masters’ will have the opportunity to experience global off-roading events.

The first leg of the qualifiers was kicked off in Delhi on 27th January, with Mr. Manav Arya and Mr. Shantanu Grover emerging as winners in the stock and modified categories, respectively. The Chandigarh qualifiers saw Mr. Gurmeet Virdi and Mr. Mankaran Singh Bhambra as the winners. The next qualifier round will take place in Shillong, followed by Hyderabad, Vagamon, Bengaluru, and Mumbai & Pune, with the finale slated to happen in Goa.
