Western India Sports Association once again brought exciting challenge for motor sports enthusiasts in Nashik. The “Express Inn Rally of Nashik” powered by “Exide Invared Tubular Battery” is presented by Red FM, scheduled on 28th September 2014. It is a fantastic opportunity for Nashikites to showcase their skill. This is TSD format rally which requires mathematical calculations and co-ordiantion between team members.WISA is organizing TSD rallies since its inception. Rather these events helped WISA to get its strength of volunteers today. In last 15 years the tally of such events of WISA has reached upto 40. There were Family Navigation rallies, All Women’s rallies, Blind man’s rally, National Championship TSD rallies, variety of TSD events. Hence this year we at WISA decided to make few changes in format.While registration for event, 2 persons’ team will be registered like always. Out of these registered entries, organizers will decide the team of 2 pairs by draw of lots. This will be done in the evening of 26th Sept., the last date of submission of entry form. Each team will consist of 4 persons. These 4 members will be informed about their counterparts. They can meet together on Sat. 27th Sept. and if wished, may change partners.

Both the competing pairs will start rally at same time from different locations on 28th Sept. They will run on separate routes. At the end, respective penalty points of each pair will be added together. Accordingly the team with least penalty points will be the winner. Same concept will be applied for 2 wheelers.

Along with team drive , one more surprise element in the event is “Self TC”. At some locations, the time controls will be manual as usual, whereas at few positions only the TC point will be demarked. TC no. will be mentioned at the site. Competitors can calculate their ideal time at that particular point as per Time Chart and write on their Time Card themselves. The penalties will be calculated like manual time controls.

WISA officials are confident that these changes in format will bring in more enjoyment. Each section will run for about 80 to 100 kms. The Event will be concluded by lunchtime on 28th Sept. In the evening the winners will be presented prizes in a grand ceremony at Hotel Express Inn. The team of 4 will be awarded the trophies for First , Second and Third positions. Same prizes will be given for Sectionwise winners too. Entry fee for 2 wheelers is Rs. 1000 and 4 wheelers is Rs. 2000. The related information with entry forms is available in WISA office and
