Desert Storm 2019, the seventeenth edition of India’s most prestigious international motorsport event, was flagged-off from New Delhi on 7th May. The Rally-Raid format event will now travel towards the interiors of the Thar Desert through Bikaner before eventually culminating in the sand dunes of Jaisalmer.

Desert Storm was launched by Northern Motorsport, India’s premier motorsport club, way back in 2003. Ever since, the event continues to test the extreme thresholds of both man and machine. Even today, the Desert Storm continues to be the longest cross country rally in India and the toughest in the desert as competitors battle extreme weather conditions, tough terrains, and navigational challenges to make their way to finish box.

This year, the competition is employing three of the traditional Desert Storm categories – Xtreme (cross-country rally for 4WD cars), Moto (cross country rally for motorbikes), and Ndure (regularity rally for 4WD cars). Over 130 participants, with 34 teams (comprising of driver & co-driver) in Xtreme Category, 8 teams (comprising of Driver & Co-Driver) in Ndure Category, and 40 riders in the Moto Category will compete against each other in their respective categories to claim the coveted Desert Storm trophies and infinite bragging rights.
