Next they will make he Great escape open to the Mahindra Renault Logan. Who cares if it is two wheel drive as long as there is one Legend with a winch even Maruthi 800s can participate.

Mods, please move this thread from the 4x4 section. There ought to be poser 4x4 section to post pictures of 2WD scorpios being wintched out of situations where any decent 4x4 would be able to drive through. Shame on your Mahindra for this Farce !!
Hope you get the jackass part now. Nothing personal but i dont like the way Mahindra eventually started promoting this event.

Is Mr Karani still a part of the Great Escapes?

Nope. He parted ways with Mahindra about 3 years back.

When was this held Offroadie? Was it on 12th July? If it was - did you see a Mahindra Bolero Commondo there? If you have any pics it would be great.

The videos show why 4x4 on these slippery trails are better. Rather than coming at a speed and letting lady luck take care, In a 4x4 you could have taken the slopes slowly and with ore control.

Alas, that option is no more open.
