It ended at Vithi Sankul of the museum.

The rally covered a distance of 30 kilometres. The route of each participant was separate this time due to Covid -19. The event was also restricted to limited entries due to the pandemic. A prize distribution ceremony was held at amphitheatre of museum. There were cash prizes and trophies for the first three winners and mementos and certificates for all participants.

Arushi has been organising the car rally for past 14 years where the vehicle is driven by a normal person while the navigator is a blind person who reads the route given on the spot in Braille script. It was a small fun event within the city limits where cars were driven at a low speed. The participants for the rally were from all over Madhya Pradesh.
