Rightly said Dhanush. We need to know how the scoring is done? Also a competitors handbook is needed for people to prepare for the event. AFAIK, the even is postponed also, but not updated in this thread. It will be good if the organizers keep us posted. And the prize money is it cash or some offroad goodies worth 4 lakhs? Is it for the overall winner or category-wise? Do you have a ladies category? What is the prize for that?
