What kind of terrain is this run on ? All Mahindra Scorpios, Boleros or for that matter Jeeps are not 4x4 ? Is it a family event ?

It's a brand excercise than a true off roading. All Mahindra vehicles including Scropios, M M Pickups, 2 X 4 vehicles can participate in the Mahindra Great Escape Event.

Shahpur Mumbai 12 July 09
Goa 25 July 09
Coorg 8 Aug 09
Munnar 22 Aug 09

Four MGEs in 40 days, that's a busy schedule. Two of them are close enough for me.

I'm in! If the terrain gets boring, we can always "make our own road" . Stigger & Ferdi also coming along in their respective Classics.

Is there a Great Escape event in these parts i.e. Delhi / Delhi NCR ? If not I have the expertise to run one here.

Mahindra Great Escape is run by Mahindra, hence the name. If you run it, it won't be Mahindra Great Escape.

All that is done by Mahindra Employees these days. When they ask you to design it so that even 2WD can participate, what will you do?

A 50 km route with intermediate challenges of a bit of climb / mud / slush for 2WD vehicles can be marked out. Do they ever hold such events in Delhi / NCR ? We have done it before in another land.
