Hi Arka Ji,

Thanks much for the headsup on Palar Challenge. Would request you to mention any specific pointers regarding Vehicle health/condition or pre-requisites for participating?
Ex - AT/MT tires,accessories to carry, must have and good to have stuff's.

Best regards,
Deepak Shivanna

I see there are two threads with the same subject line, which one is redundant?

Arka, wish you, the O-team/Marshals & participants all the best for this premier off-road event. Unfortunately, due to other planned commitments on same dates, will not be able to take part this year.

Any planned change in format this year/location or will it be the same as last few years?

Hi Shubendra,

The 3 Days of TPC2013 will cover around 80-100kms OFF-ROAD.

So we don't make provision for spectators, because we will have to carry them around, and they will not be comfortable.

Regards,

Arka

PS - We poor-er JEEPers have driven up to Mumbai-Pune back in 2010.

Hey Arka,
Nice to see the entries double compare to that of 2012TPC.
My one suggestion is to give the Competitive SS's the recognition it deserves. If Prologue-SS and Technical-SS has a separate prize then you must categorize the Competitive-SS's also for a prize. You know there is more skill, effort and hard work goes into the Competitive-SS's. That's just my point of view.
Looking forward to this event and meeting the Stalwarts of the Indian 4X4 scenario.
Wish the Oteam All the best for the event.
