€1000 per rickshaw. Ain’t cheap but with experience we’ve found that it’s the right number to make sure that no matter how hard you party after the day’s stage that you’ll remember not to lose your mobile or not to crash your auto rickshaw just for the hell of it without stopping to consider the deposit. It’s also a built in expense account if you simply want the support mechanics to do your repairs without locating & negotiating repair costs along the way. Prices for repairs and replacements are listed in the roadbook that you receive prior to the event.

What to Expect

On this trip to India you will traverse the very heart of the nation as you race from the capital of Mumbai on the western coast overlooking the Arabian sea through four different Indian states plying your way in two weeks through the glorious landscape, ancient history and fabulous culture of this magical country till you reach the crystal clear waters of Chennai on the shoreline of the Bay of Bengal. This is the Mumbai Xpress.
