Speaking on his win, Mr. Chandran, who drove the mean machine for the second season of INRC, said, “Winning the Group N class and finishing third overall in only our second season of rallying feels fantastic. All credit goes to our Mitsubishi Cedia Sports that worked like a dream. Not only was she amazingly quick throughout the weekend resulting in our victory margin being over three minutes but, more importantly, she soaked in the tremendous beating from the unforgiving tarmac without a single hiccup bringing us home safely and to the top step of the podium.
