India! The country with amazing diversity and wonders has many champions. All these are real facts and real records. Most of them are certified by authentic record books like Guiness Book of Records & Limca Book of Records. I am trying to tabulate as many as I can.

WORLD'S LONGEST CAR JOURNEY

Tata Motors' small car Nano entered the Guinness World Records in 2013 for driving on a longest journey covering the entire country, the company said on Monday.

"The expedition was accomplished in 10 days (March 21st to 30th of 2013) covering 10,218 km in a Tata Nano from Kanyakumari in southern Tamil Nadu to circumnavigate the country and return to Bangalore," Tata Motors president  for Passenger Vehicle Business Unit, Ranjit Yadav said at an event held in Bangalore.

The car entered the Guinness World Records, breaking the previous record of 8,046 km. The official title for the record is "Longest journey by car in a single country".

The car was driven by Bangalore based motoring enthusiast Srikarunya Subrahmanyam and his team.
"Tata Nano has put India on the world motoring map by demonstrating its robustness, reliability and frugal engineering. We will encourage motor expeditions to enable customers experience the brand's value," Yadav said.

India's first Formula One motor racing driver Narain Karthikeyan felicitated Subrahmanyam and the team for the record achievement on the occasion.
"I have seen a new breed of traveller emerge, one who has a streak of adventure and passion for motoring. I have known people who have driven long distances for the fun of it despite the option of taking a flight or a train being always there. This is the spirit that encourages enthusiasts like Srikarunya to overcome challenges of driving long distances," Karthikeyan said.
