A lovely album by Nitin Yadav covering the event is at https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...7146936&type=3

The best was the dune bashing. It looked so easy while watching and simple. But when the driver got his vehicle in position at top of the sand bar it was moment of truth. Many hesitated at the brink but with guidance from spotter marshals were able to negotiate the slope perfectly.

A short report.

There were two trails marked out. The one for 2wd vehicles was through a river bed. This was through tall elephant grass winding through rocky hills. The trouble spots has been identified where the vehicles were expected to get stuck due to sudden changes in direction and deep sand. Tractor were placed to be on call.
As expected once a car in front got stuck two or three behind also met same fate. In the end it was a Thar with winch that was able to pull out vehicles where even tractor failed.
Due to delays caused by stop and pull operations only half the trail was covered. At the end of this trail was a steep downhill sand bank which was attempted by all. It looked so easy but when the vehicle was at the start most of the drivers has panic attack!

The 4wd trail went through hilly country where a series of rock climb challenges were staged. All challenges had spotters to guide the drivers.
Have already posted FB link for pictures clicked by others.

Lightbulb Photos or Videos wanted - Mahindra Great Escape Jaipur - 2012

Hello Folks, I need a small favor from any of the participants of the Mahindra Great Escape Jaipur - 2012.

Remember the section / climb in the photo below ?

This was where the white Thar got stuck due to clutch damage and had to be rescued...

I drove through this section just before the white Thar got stuck (I was in the green Thar - No.23). Unfortunately we could not take any pictures or videos of this section... My better half was busy holding on to dear life

I think there were folks from the Jeeps before mine who were clicking pics / videos. Can anyone please post the pics or videos here ?

I am planning to put up a 'Experience report' from my first OTR; and this is the only section where I don't have any pics or videos.

Please help.

You can post the photos here or please send me a PM if you have uploaded the pics / videos elsewhere.


Thanks!
