Rajiv Ruparelia’s ambitions to join competitive rally are now in a high gear after the 29-year-old signed up into a rally school.

Ruparelia, whose news of joining rally broke two weeks ago; joined the Rallystar Academy in South Africa on Saturday last week. 

He will undergo specialised rally training with former rally driver Leon Botha.

“I decided to join rallying just to feed my strong passion for Motorsport. But also I want to have fun.

“And rallying is not something you just wake up and take on. I decided to join a rally school to get myself equipped with some experience,” said Ruparelia.

He acquired a Volkswagen Proto to set his ambitions rolling.
