First off, if you're wondering what the Coffee Day Rally is, it is a rally sponsored by Cafe Coffee Day and organised by the Chikmagalur Motorsports Club. And in a rather dramatic finish to this year's rally, Amittrajit Ghosh along with co-driver Ashwin Naik triumphed in the INRC 2000cc class after race leaders Karna Kadur with co-driver Sommonita Ghosh faced a penalty of 40 seconds for a delayed start, thus gifting the victory to Ghosh and Naik.
