Wow! This is a very good initiative- hats off to the organisers! Nelliampathy, Malampuzha and neighbouring Kava are good places to put 4X4's to the test.I remember some of my friends took a M800 and got stuck in the slush while attempting to do handbrake turns at Kava and was rescued by a MM540 !

I missed this event. Even though JeepCaptain informed me about this event I could not make it up. I heard this even was successful in all aspects. Location was very nice. Hopefully I can take part in the next!
