Congrats on the Times of India article Arka. Pleasantly surprised to read it today over morning tea.

What was that bit was ragging non-Jeep drivers?

Today, the Palar challenge kicked off with 22 jeeps and 4x4s from all around the country participating in this gruelling 3 day event.
Im participating on tuesday as a co-driver with Headers and his trusty Gypsy King who's got new Michelin Off-roading shoes specially for this event.
