For the first time in “The Land of Kingdoms” the Single Stage Sprint Rally named “Rally-Cross” happened on 13th -14th of September, in the hilly dike of Amber, in Rajasthan that is in– “Village Achrol”. The Sprint rally was complete speed treat for Motorsport lovers because of different dirt and gravel tracks.
The best moment to feel proud on was the women involvement in such Motorsport events. The smashing gravel and dust storm by those giant tires still fill my nerves with full of excitement. Being a Motorsports photographer in this gender biased nation, has always given me a satisfaction, greed to achieve more and a reason to prove other wrong who says quote and quote – “women are meant to be at kitchen”. In conversation with “Women extreme” runner up Minaxi Purohit, she elucidated her love for gypsies and motor-bots; in a way she proved that women can also have much affection for these advance gears. The same sort of words is also said by “Bani” (the winner of women extreme) – ‘competing against men give a sense of satisfaction and a good motivational kick to work even harder’.
A motorsport event isn’t only about advance machinery but it’s also promote cultural gradation of that state , these events do give people some raw experiences to sharpen their skills for betterment, a reason for women to showcase their capability and to represent nation at broader level.
The interesting fact to know while in conversation with locals was about the history of the rally track. A villager named Shyamdhan added-“this track was used to be Jaipur – Delhi old highway”. Learning and adorning head with Rajasthani turban was much fun. Those rustling gypsies’ noise, the warmth of engine, fast moving wheels, and mechanical flying saucer are few phrases to activate my appeased enthuse-balls and here goes one more never forgets travel nick in my travel-pyxis.
