Non-stop drive from Ladakh to Kanyakumari; trio sets record
Kozhikode: Three Keralites have entered the Limca Book of Records by taking a car ride from Ladakh to Kanyakumari without stopping and reaching the destination within a very short time. Farook native Bibin Krishnan, Malappuram native Noufal and Alappuzha native Sameer are the three friends who entered the record.
They took just 49 hours and 34 minutes to complete the journey. The trio set the record by breaking the earlier record of 52 hours and 58 minutes set seven years ago. They started the ride at 7.05 am on September 1 from Ladakh and reached Kanyakumari on September 3 at 8.39 am. They took 17 hours to travel through the terrible Himalayan paths and reach Punjab. They covered 3870 kilometres to reach their destination.
Passion for travel teamed up the three friends to set out for the trip. They wanted to create a record and as they love to travel, they decided to set the record by travelling.
The journey started by forming a travel platform called Team F1 India. They took almost six months to prepare for the adventurous ride.
Gazetted officers noted the time at the locations where they started and concluded the travel.
