Riding a scooter on hilly terrain at breakneck speed in the rain is something unheard of. Not many would risk it. But daredevils on two-wheelers have been doing exactly that for over 21 years and will continue the exercise on July 17 2011.
Around 35 motorsport freaks will ride over the backwoods of Navi Mumbai and challenge each other in Sportscraft’s 22nd Monsoon Scooter Rally, sponsored by Gulf Oil Corporation Limited. This annual event has become popular for riders of Mumbai, Pune, Nashik and its neighboring areas. Come the monsoon and all keep enquiring about the same.
