The Indian National Rally Championship (INRC) 2013 season finale at Chikmagalur witnessed an onslaught of sorts by Volkswagen's rally-spec Polos. Arjun Rao Aroor came out tops in the 1600 category, and wrapped up the Coffee Day Rally overall. Sirish Chandran and Hrishikesh Thackersey took up the other spots on the podium, making it an all-VW podium in the 1600s. JINRC winner Rohan Pawar too was piloting a Polo.

Commenting on the successful weekend, Prithviraj Siddappa, Head of Volkswagen Motorsport India, said, "Volkswagen cars cruised to victories with Arjun Rao showing top notch performance and clinching a win overall while Rohan won the JINRC. Sirish made a mark by finishing second in 1600 and third overall. We are extremely delighted with our Customer Sport competitors’ performance and we hope to go even bigger the next season. I would like to specially congratulate Arjun on winning the title in a Polo rally car."
