Isuzu! That's news, I had heard that Mahindra was in the fray. It will be interesting to see whether Isuzu will be entering some highly modified Isuzu models into the competition. Hope they do.

Does any one have any information on where in Goa the stages will be held? I checked the Cougar Motorsport site and the route map and fliers are not up yet. I was planning check out the action on the last two days.

Drive on,
Shibu
