Nearly 1,000 adventure enthusiasts have already participated in the initiative globally since its launch.
The Coronavirus pandemic has ensured that all major sporting events across the globe have come to a halt. This also includes motorsport events involving track racing as well as cross country rallying. Now Hero MotoSports Team Rally has introduced a digital initiative that aims to familiarise rally enthusiasts with all aspects of navigation. The “Rally Life Navigator” teaches participants basic road-book skills while digitally exploring popular global rally destinations from the safety of their homes. In all there will be eight road-book training sessions and three competitive navigation challenges.
The campaign is taking participants virtually to the most challenging rally destinations of the world.
Wolfgang Fischer, Head – Hero MotoSports Team Rally said, “The initiative aids the navigation journey of motorsport enthusiasts with tutorial videos, commonly used lexicons and training road-books using digital mapping. We are sure that the challenge will not only give the participants a rider’s perspective, but also build their appetite to experience the rally-life in the real world.”
