Hi folks,

It had been a great opening of Palar Challenge 2013. I was told Bangalore had 15 vehicles and almost 30 people participating in the event. Since I and MP Sreenivas could not make it to the participation, we thought will pay a visit to Palar just to see the flag off and cheer participants.

We started at around 3.30 p.m. on 14th august from Bangalore in MPS's Armada. We saw few of the vehicles from Bangalore moved ahead of us on the road. We stayed in Maj. Roy's Adventure Zone for the night and met the Palar Challenge participants at 7.30 a.m. on 15th August. Exchanged wishes and awaited the flag off.

Long Convoy started with preset groups towards the Offroading venue- The palar river bed. We wondered if this river was flowing like other rivers would have watered whole of Tamil Nadu. Such vastness is the river.

We as visitors for the flag off only were assigned to SS5 and SS6 trails. Markings and flags were being put by O team members and were getting ready to kick start the event. I went around the trails and was taking pictures. I do not remember the time exactly, the event was flagged off at around 10.30 a.m. (Correct me if I am wrong) with Bangalore team comprising Smitha, Amber and Jay Shankar. My blackberry mobile camera started clicking the drives.

Here are some of the pictures.

Thanks for the pics, dwaraka!

One of the wettest TPCs so far ! For the uninitiated, it is unusual to see so much green grass on the Palar river bed during August. This is a possibility usually during Dec-Jan, post NE monsoon, when Chennai gets its max rainfall. This year, the rainfall pattern has been unusual (in a positive way).

The heat and humidity during August in Chennai is one of the key 'factors' which contributed to the toughness aspect of TPC. Would be interesting to know how the rainfall affected this during TPC 2013.

Congrats to all winners and the rest who braved the challenge, including the O-Team.

Arka, Any pictures on the different stages of the event. I am looking forwarrd to the report/pictures around the rock climb I saw on another forum posted by Vishnu, with your jeep halfway through the same. Looked awesome, but wanted to know how the various breeds(both jeeps and jeepsy) performed on this.

Thanks and Regards
