Default Drunken or High - see the score

Sean Hameed & Darshan Maralanda in a MG413W, Baskar Keshavalu & Zubin in a MM540DP were nothing short of brilliant.

Their planning at the special stages, recovery techniques, driving skill, and humility endeared them to all.

In short they raised the standard of TPC and gave very valuable suggestions.

Ranjith Kuttan form Kerala was superb in a Red M&M CLASSIC. The Kerala JEEPers pulled (tow) their JEEPs up quite a few of the obstacles, without fretting or fuming, just to finish the Special Stages.

The team from Salem started with 3 vehicles and finished with one, with a cheering squad on the tow

Vikram, Dr.Jones & Rajamohan had the tough task of opening the route everyday.

Sanjay David, Patrick & Vinod Nookala - were set from the word go.

TPC09 - was off-roading & team work on an entirely new level, even the organizers were amazed at the spirit of the competitors.

Regards,

Arka

The one-ton and of course, the prowler are always a treat to the eyes.

So far, from the pics, it looks like a proper mudbath. Congrats, everyone. Special congratulations to the organizers and the winners!!

Superb pictures of what was obviously an outstanding 4x4 competition. Makes me feel terribly about missing the TPC '09. Hats off, Arka, for taking the initiative of promoting such an event.

Do keep those pictures coming, especially of the different stages that made up the TPC.
