That's great! So it's not just a competition, but also sort of 'training' for the guys!

Hi Arka,

Again let me tell you, Great Event!

Why did not the 540/50 with the red fender flares make it and needed to be towed? Did it not get the right momentum before getting beached?

What was the correct technique to make it through this obstacle?

Finally, never seen spotters this active as in pic. #1,4 and 24.
The spotter in pic. #1...what can I say? He is just too amazing.
Regards,

Congratulations to the winning team, remember i told you you would win palar this year in Chikmanglur escape :-)) Being Palar winner twice, i know what it takes to win, good preparation, team work, excellent driving skills among other things.
Congratulations to the runner up teams as well as i can see the competition levels are going up year after year!Arka, the O team- You guys are raising the bar every year. Congratulations to you. We had Moastery Escape around the same time, else i would have tried to make it atleast as a spectator.

1.) I think this competition and meeting of electronic friends should happen more than once a year.

2.) Where do you guys purchase all that great rubber? Some really nice tyres employed.

This along with SS2 was my personal favorite on day 1.

The entry for this SS was a very sharp & deep/acute V and if one got the angle wrong then one could have wasted quite a bit of time in getting out. In a competitive, time based, event this makes a difference and does play on your mind.

Even the climb 4 & exit through 5 were nice and not just straight climbs/exits. Loved this SS.

From what I saw & heard from others, Mansoors team had the BEST spotters & the person in the blue shirt was just amazing. I saw him on the individual SS and the way he was controlling the spotting/driver was immaculate. Just tooooooooooo good. The best I have seen -- blind faith by drivers in the spotter & the spotter in total control

Dear Santhosh,
That blue coloured CJ3B belongs to Mr. Sathish from Coimbatore. It has got a XDP 4.9 with T-90. Its a well restored vehicle, got to accompany him while returning from TPC

Arka, maybe you could also upload the SS based points & also the time for each team at that SS along with the pictures you are posting.

That will give readers a context and can co-relate the the pictures of that SS with the points to get a sense of how the teams tackled the terrain & time taken etc.
