Shakedown is designed to give drivers an opportunity to test their machines well in time as well as giving media an opportunity to capture the first look moments prior to the event.
Only WRC 1, 2 and 3 drivers have been enlisted for shakedown.
Onkar and Tejveer are currently running VW Polo R5 while Tundo will be behind wheel of a similar car.
