Things weren't completely easy for Gerrari, though, with the Chandigarh team slipping to fifth place in one of the stages on the second day. However, they were unbeatable in all other five stages of the event, which meant they took home the championship.
The fourth edition of the JK Tyre-Orange 4x4 Fury threw up some tough challenges for the competitors to grapple with. The Sunday of the event saw two tough stages - Bush Man, where the vehicles needed to climb some wooden logs, make their way into the river, drive to the jungle, come back into the river, and then cross the finish of the stage - all within 20 minutes. In the final stage on the Sunday, called Showman, the teams had to use technique and precision to climb a man-made gradient that was 12 feet high, and also featured a steep drop. Waraich and Singh comfortably won these tricky stages.
