You'll have a blast, Sharath! Southern great escapes are known to be amongst the better ones. Good luck.

I have registered on-line. Hope i will get a call from them since registration was not particular about coorg event. I called up Vijay Auto, and the lady who picked-up the phone has no clue about GE . Had a talk with her manager and she told me that will get back to me on this.

On 20th Sept 2008, the Rally will start and end at The Club Mahindra Kodagu Valley and will pass through Galibedu, Chapada Keera, Vanachalu School and then in the off road forest region. But only Mahindra vehicles are allowed I think. Register with your local Mahindra dealer for the event.

The entries are still open, do make it if you can. I'll be there too.

Hi Zahed,

I wanted to participate but did not hear back from Mahindra. So doubtful.

Call and talk to them, if they still don't help, let me know. The local Mahindra sales guy was inviting customers.

I checked with my Mahindra contact, there are still many openings, and they are eager to book.

Anybody who is interested, PM me and I'll give you the phone number. I can't post that guy's mobile number publicly.

I wanted to, but Mr.Sudhir Kashyap asked me to join the volunteer team. It will be a better learning experience. That way I can have more closeup view of all the action, and shoot more photographs, get more muck.

There are quite a few Jeepers coming from Bangalore that I know. I am sure we can find some room for off-road hitchhikers.
