rally insurance

It is brought to the notice of the participants that the normal vehicle insurance policy does not support the rallies. To take part in TWD 2018 it is mandatory to take separate rally insurance (endorsement on normal vehicle insurance policy). As per existing IRDA rules, the same branch office of the insurance company who has issued normal vehicle insurance can issue the rally cover at nominal costs which may vary based on the IDV of the vehicle and the insurance company.

The letter for the reason for refusal should be demanded from such branches/company which can expedite the resolution of such issues.


Participants are required to carry all the above documents in original throughout the drive and/or Event.

By the very act of signing the entry form, the participants submit and bind themselves to resort only to the National Competition Rules (NCR) of FMSCI and the International Sporting Code of the FIA, the Supplementary Regulations of the Event and all the other terms and conditions as specified in indemnity letter.

start order

The Organizers after all valid entries are accepted will determine the Starting Order. Each vehicle will be flagged off at 1-minute intervals.
