Default Chandigarh Great Escape 2012

At the Mahindra Great Escape Chandigarh, our enthusiasts battled the tough terrains, gushing muddy waters and slippery paths. This intriguing escapade was a part of the fifth round of the Off-roading Trophy 2012. Some hardcore thrilling adventure pictures captured.

Vinod Sir, each of these pics (especially the second set) are wallpaper material. Kudos to the photographer.

Each of the vehicles shown makes me want to buy one. Unfortunately Vitamin M is missing,i am working towards earning it. Till then it's from my side.

Please keep organising such events in order to keep the spreading 4X4 Virus.

The pictures are real treat to watch. I scrolled up an down at least ten times to view them. It indeed looked like an extreme endurance test for the participants.

Superb pics. The very 1st pic of the THAR (modded at Performance auto, noida?) shows the BIGHORN 764 M/T tires. Are these officially/ unofficially available in India now?

The enthusiasm of Chandigarh off-roaders was infectious. Monsoon added their bit by letting loose downpour just as the event neared. It was fun to be part of this event and get my feet thoroughly mud caked.

The Thar with the R1 tractor tyres is running on 7.50x16 dint it have problems of the tyres rubbing the inner walls/fenders on articulation? looks killer.

The hard top Thar looks insane.

Some lovely high speed pics. Looks like the boys had a real rough and tumble time and enjoyed it thoroughly!

These pics are the work of Nitin who has given our events a new high. Thanks to him the true glory of our events are being captured properly. Please watch Monastery escape pics too. They are simply superb!

We imported them. Not yet available in India. Now no one can accuse M&M fellas to be on HT tyres :-P lol

David- Don't ask me how many times this Thar HT was stopped on monastery escape to ask for details. Some day when i have time will post the mods on this vehicle. This vehicle is modded by Raj of performance Auto. I am sure he is already over booked

These are some excellent pics! Especially the second lot as someone mentioned earlier. The pic of the hard top Thar after its mud bath is to die for. I must confess that the pic is already my wallpaper, both on my BB and my laptop. Just couldn't resist.

Terrain looks challenging and the rains might have added fuel to the fun you guys might have had.

Never had a chance to attend such an event but have been living that dream by loitering over the 4 X 4 excursions section. You guys make sure that those who cannot attend these events can enjoy the pictures at least.

Thanks again!

Vinod,

A very nice OTR up North and some very good photographs, especially the low and wide angle in the second set. Effort by the photographer very well rewarded in making the Thar coming out super class.
Regards,

Hi davids4x4mm550,

The Thar with the 'tractor' tyres has been modified by me at Sarbloh Motors. If you have noticed, it is a Thar CRDe and has a solid axle. It also has a twin shock setup at the front and retains the R&P steering. The tyres do not foul with the inner walls as we have retained the front track width i.e., the track width is same as that of an Thar with IFS. Nevertheless, the fenders have been modified to accommodate for increased articulation. (Attaching a picture from recently concluded NIOC event in Gurgaon)

Regards

Jaskirat
