Tiger ranch,V-16,frankenstein,r32-gtr and all the other guys who have taken the time to post pictures and write ups good on you guys

I thought i would add some more pictures of my own

You can clearly see the vehicles lift off the ground in a couple of them.

These obstacles were all done before lunch time which was served roughly at 1:00pm.

KICK***!! I am simply staggered by the variations on this trail. Some slush...lots of rock...slippery, tough climbs and tricky descents. I did some of the trail during the recces over time but somehow everything looks new and different once the rains hit Karjat. This is truly one of the best venues for off-roaders in India and I am glad this center of off-roading excellence revolves around the legacy of Alfa Kilo.

Looking forward to future iterations of AKC and I won't miss the next one...

Guru the trail was too extreme,i got scared in a few places too. The event was so meticulously organized, be it food(hot food on time ) , no waiting time , very technical and dangerous obstacles where even the veterans started sweating . Kunal is too good with his JEEP be it wheel placement or spotting , one can blindly follow his instructions and i wonder if anyone could do more with their JEEP .

The vehicle entries was limited which helped greatly . We were well informed about what to expect , but got too much . The whole trail was an obstacle , proper instructions were given before leaving for the trail , Marshals were very friendly and down to earth and gave us our time and there was no ego , shouting at all . James and kunal were just too perfect.

Our team is very much impressed by the organizers and Kunal . A big thank you guys(on behalf of our team) , we had a great time

@All, how did the Thars perform through these trails?
Thanks to all those sharing the pictures and narrating their experiences. Looks like everyone had an absolutely rocking time.

In my personal opinion, Thar's with MT tyres (I am not sure if some of them were lifted) did quite well in the trails. The Thars from Hyderabad (heck every single jeep from Hyderabad!) were very well prepared. and they had good drivers.

Thar's with HT/AT would have a tough time and by corollary, a good driver would not show up in a Thar with HT tyres.

Was this the normal angle of approach? How did the gypsy drive out of this position? A jeep may have topped over right?

In this picture the Gypsy tipped over on its side,none of the Jeeps tipped over here.

One of the Gurkhas also tipped over and fell on its right side in the same place.

It was a pleasure meeting the GREGARIOUS YOU.

About the gear oil, it was meant for you only.
We all had a blast from day one, it was a great opportunity to meet so many BHP'ians, who I only knew by their names.

Thanks to the O team of AKC and EXAMM who were such nice and warm guys themselves.

The spotters:
Gogi, Imran, Sajid, Devang, Prasad, Soumya, Kunal, Tejas and others I do not know names of. A very very special thanks to you all, for it was you who made it possible for us to get through.

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves each moment and obstacle.

PS Thanks for posting pics. of the Lynx.

Fazalbhai it was a pleasure to meet you and your brother. And the Lynx is to be seen in person to be believed. Great machine.

I dont know how i landed almost always at the end of the line. Maybe i was studying the obstacles for long, maybe the others just impatient. In the process i had only Jiggy taking pics of my Jeep, that too mostly videos. May i request if anyone has more pics of my Jeep in action to kindly post it here? Thanks in anticipation.

After seeing the photos and the trails, i have been asking myself these two questions, How can i miss it? Why did i miss it? unable to answer them to my satisfaction. I am really feeling bad, having traveled so far to participate in Examm, shouldnt have taken AKC lightly. You guys surely must have had loads of fun. Next year i am IN for AKC.

Just getting to enjoy the OTRs in a communal jeep. The Himalayas are too far from Hyderabad for me to drive a Jeep all the way there :-(.
Time to get your own. For a Skoda fan, the Yeti. No distance too far then!
