The choice of location was due to its level and dry lakebed, stunning vistas, and soil, which is soft enough to leave deep impressions to be captured by drones high above. The GT R’s phenomenal handling capability and All-Wheel-Drive system enabled quick maneuverability on the sandy surface of the lake.
Piloted by professional rally driver Rahul Kanthraj, the map was created by plotting the coordinates on a GPS device and covered 3km in length, 2.8km in width, and a total outline periphery of 14.7 km.
