But more important than just the suzuki going was the ability of the entire team to cross ALL obstacles in the first shot. That gave us the edge.

Also, we had a fantastic teamwork when it came to crossing the obstacles. And vinod was amazing.

The reason i say this is cos, the gypsy and the classic had the wheelbase advantage. Whereas Vinod had to use technique of carrying the torque, which he did amazingly well.

OVerall, an fantastic event, and am already looking forward to the next one. The day 2 special stages made it even more enjoyable!

Sad, though that none of you guys from tbhp could witness the action. Neoranjit and Nickatnite visited us on day2 which was a good surprise!

I guess he was in the Jeep Thrills zone... Actually, lots of people who frequent this 4x4 section are also Jeep Thrills members.

Well rippergeo, there was a lot of promising talent in the form of volunteers from C-TBHP, especially off the forum. Unfortunately, no one could make it. Hope I am clear now!
