What is TSD car rally?

For those not initiated into motorsports, the word 'car rally' means expensive modifications, racing at high speeds and spectacular overtaking eventuating into a win. 

TSD car rally however does not depend on the capabilities of driver at high speed, nor does it depend on how fast your car can go. Ordinary street legal  car can be used in TSD rally. Also for this reason this format of rally is far less expensive and one that can be enjoyed by majority of people. TSD car rally focuses on maintenance of precise average speed and time. Your co-driver i.e. navigator place the vital role in navigating and calculating the precise time as much as it is important for you to know driving a car. 

TSD is known as time-speed-distance rally. The objective of this motorsport rally is driving each segment within a specific time and average speed. 

Where will Himalayan Backlands Rally (HBR) be conducted?
