Kottayam: Indias top rally driver Gaurav Gill was at his imperious best here on Saturday, stealing Day 1s honors with 6 Super Stage wins as the Champions Yacht Club FMSCI Indian National Rally Championship headed towards an explosive finish.
The JK Tyre driver, with Musa Sherif as co-driver, who was trailing in the seventh position at the start of the round could well break into the podium if he manages to excel on the final day of the championship too. He had just 29 points after the first four rounds but could end up adding 39 points more if he remains unbeaten on Sunday as well, catapulting him on the leader board.
Another JK Tyre driver, Younus Ilyas (Harish Gowda) and Dr. Bikku Babu (Milen George) had spectacular outings too, with the former even winning two stages. The duo shared the second and third positions in all the other six Popular Rally stages, providing thrilling fare to the spectators. IANS
