Warn Industries, the US-based manufacturer of off-road equipment and accessories, would be the official Winch Partner for the Force Gurkha RFC India 2016. The third edition of the event, which was launched by Cougar Motorsport in 2014 as India’s first international off-road motorsport event, will be held in Goa from 22nd July to 29th July 2016. Force Gurkha RFC India is the India Chapter of the iconic Rainforest Challenge of Malaysia, which is among the top ten toughest motor races in the world and has 25 editions worldwide.
Delhi-based Cougar Motorsport Pvt. Ltd. has joined hands with US-based Warn Industries. In a short span of time RFC India has successfully changed the face of Indian off-road motorsport by bringing in international level of toughness and professionalism in the sport. Today, RFC India is counted among the top 3 events in the RFC Global Series. The off-road motorsport event tests the driving and vehicle recovery skills of the competing teams under extreme off-road conditions. Since winching is a vital part of the tasks, it is essential for the teams to use good quality winches that would support them throughout the competition.
As per Cougar Motorsport’s Founder & Director Mr. Ashish Gupta,“In the last two years, we have successfully established RFC India as the country’s toughest and best off-road motorsport event. A lot of efforts have been made to ensure that the event is of international standards. I am glad that Warn Industries, which is the world’s foremost winch manufacturer and has in the past partnered with some of the best events in the world including RFC Malaysia, has come forward to join hands with us. This shows that our event is being noticed and respected by the global industry leaders.”
“2016 is the year in which the Warn brand in India is supported by the Warn International Branch office in the Netherlands to deepen our relations with our partners and end-users in India. Inspired by the earlier achievements of its participants and the professionalism of the organizer, Cougar Motorsport Pvt. Ltd., we are looking forward to this new partnership. As our products were already widely used during the event, we are very happy to become directly associated. The historic relation between Warn and the Rainforest Challenge event in Malaysia is revived by this sponsorship”, said Mr. Hugo Burgers, Director (EMEA & India), Warn Industries, Inc.
