The two wheeler entry list of of early entrants is out for this year’s Raid de Himalaya. Not surprisingly, contains a few standard entrants names.

Entries to the Raid opened on May 1 this year with early entries lasting till May end.

This list has filled up so quick, there is only one entry left with over 3 months to go (we’ll update this page once that spot also gets filled). So, if you’re interested, hurry! Take a look at this page for details, information and useful links on the Raid.

An interesting fact is that this year, there are 8 contestants on Royal Enfields compared to the 2 entries last year (thanks for that info Rohan!).

The names in bold are the ones that we’ll be watching closely and hopefully following up during the raid. If you are a two wheeler entrant and think you can give regular updates with your bike preparation, photos and other such things related to the raid get in touch with us.

All motorcycles run in the Extreme category unlinke the cars that have the Aventure trail and the Extreme categories. For the entry list of the cars, check out the Raid de Himlaya’s official site.

2007 Raid De Himalaya

The 9th Maruti Suzuki Raid de Himalaya 2007 will run between the 4th and 13th  of October 2007.

The 2007 Raid de Himalaya 2007 will run two versions, concurrently, as in the last five years, the X-Treme and the Adventure Trial. The reliability trial is renamed the “Adventure trial” as it has grown to be much more than just a test of machine reliability.

With the success of the “Maruti Suzuki Raid de Himalaya” over 8 consecutive years, Himalayan Motor sport has been attentive to requests from motoring enthusiasts all over India for a car rally having a lower level of competition, stress and difficulty; but one which would allow the adventurous to enjoy the real Himalayas in a stock car, without the expensive modifications that rally cars are compulsorily subject to.

More importantly, the idea is to enjoy the vast cultural heritage of a land that is exotic, beautiful and awe inspiring to say the least; without having to sacrifice the family car in the attempt! At the same time it is necessary to introduce an element of competitiveness that would make this rally much more than a tour.

Remember, entries are open from May 1st and pay early to save some money!
