The 2016 rally comprises a total of six events across the country, with Deccan Rally being the second followed by other championships of this rally like – The Backwaters Rally in Cochin, The Mughal Rally in Jammu and Kashmir, The Rally of Gujarat; with the last rally being organized in Arunachal Pradesh.

Speaking on this, Mr. R S Kalsi, Executive Director, Marketing & Sales, Maruti Suzuki said, “We received great response for the first round of the National Super League TSD Rally Championship hosted in Uttarakhand, which was the maiden rally from our stable in the mountain city. Similar to the northern region, we look forward to immense enthusiasm from our Pune motorsport lovers, which has been a hitherto unexplored territory for motorsports.”
