Now only 23 slots are available as the winners of north and south chapters already got 2 slots for the Goa event so Hurry and get registered yourself soon on the official website www.rfcindia.in.

Why only total of 25 entries (23 available)?

These are the words of the event organizer , founder and director of Cougar Motosports Mr. Ashish Gupta-  “RFC India is an extremely tough competition that tests the driving and vehicle recovery skills of the contesting teams under extreme off-road conditions. As the event progresses, the challenges keep getting tougher and completing the tasks in the allocated time becomes very difficult for most of the teams due to vehicle breakdowns, topples, faulty equipment and accessories as well as the mental and physical fatigue of the competitors. Hence, we have kept an upper limit of 25 teams for the competition in order to retain the high-quality standards of the competition and yet complete the entire event within the stipulated time.”
