A briefing session preceded the event where details of the pre-decided route were shared with participants alongwith other rules of the game.

The rally covered a distance of over 40 km in the city of Ludhiana with the vehicles passing through Jamalpur, Focal Point, Kohara, Lalton, before returning to the starting point, where the amount of diesel consumed was measured and mileage was determined.
All participants were made to carry the same load of 850 kg.
All participants showed great enthusiasm during the event. The winning vehicle clocked an average of 35 km/litre.
