Proving that age has nothing to do with winning tough offroad events, veteran rallyist Jagat Nanjappa showed to the world that it is fitness, grit and determination that make a winner. After a week-long grueling off-roading action, last moment surprises and unprecedented ups and downs on the leader board Nanjappa and co-driver Chetan Changappa of Coorg’s Team V5 Offroaders emerged as the ultimate champions of Isuzu RFC India 2018. They won the fifth season of India’s toughest international off-road motorsport competition with a total score of 2006 points out of 2600.

This year, 39 teams, each consisting of a driver and a co-driver, competed in the event. The week-long event which began at Suquerbag in Quepem, moved on to the Green Hills Agri Farm in Maina, Quepem before culminating at the Rajiv Gandhi IT Habitat in Dona Paula on July 28.

RFC India was launched by Delhi-based Cougar Motorsport Pvt. Ltd. in 2014. It is the India Chapter of the Rainforest Challenge of Malaysia, which is listed among the top ten toughest motor races in the World and has over 51 editions being held in 21 countries worldwide. Now five editions old, RFC India is unarguably considered as the country’s toughest international off-road motorsport competition and is counted amongst the top three toughest events in the RFC Global Series.
