Super pictures. Great to see familiar smiling faces again.

Since there are no pics of water, how deep was the water in the water stage?

Reason for asking: Seeing the increasing depth of water troughs in 'competitive' offroad events, how do/did petrol vehicles fare?

Vested reason for asking

Thanks for sharing. Jeep_Girl. Did you take part in your Gypsy, as seen in your profile picture?

I noticed a green bucket on the jeeps
Event Report: Bangalore Offroaders Jamboree, October 2013-img_1934.jpg

Was this part of the competition where the one with maximum amount of water in the buckets won the stage?

Cheers

Soumya SIR,
I think it was water under bucket which was being tied up on bonnet of vehicle and then asked to complete a trail with minimum spill of water. I am just guessing though.
Dont get scared we are on same page and we wont enter deep water obstacles in Gokak which are actually meant for amphibian jeep.

That is exactly what it was. 1900ml (measured in a beaker) of water was poured into the bucket which had a very strong magnet underneath it. Participants were asked to place the bucket anywhere on the bonnet and begin the trail.

Winning criteria was
1. Participant who returns with the highest volume of water at the end of 10mins
2. Incase of a tie on volume, participant who reaches the fastest.

It was something unique and in a bid to saved water many participants went slow and couldn't finish in time. The trail did the rest and had the rest for lunch... Only a handful vehicles completed the challenge.
