By the quality of report it is easy to make out how well the event whould have been organised. Great show Arka and congrats to winners as well as all participants and organisers for such a successful event.

The heat must have taken the extreme out of men and machines.. Great pics keep them coming.. who took them?

That is Arka's famous Nissan. http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/4x4-ve...aka-1-ton.html (Nissan 4W73 aka 1 ton)
I was a fool and did not realize that the TPC was in August and was preparing my jeep blissfully thinking that it was in September. It was only when I logged on to register when I realized my stupid mistake. Sorry Arka.

Congrats Arka and all the happily grinning participants. It is evident from the photos so far that it was just an incredible event. I really feel bad I couldn't participate. I had been subconsciously preparing for TPC, even changed the tyres to Yoko AT-S to withstand the long trip across. However, a looming crisis in the family finally forced me to back out of TPC and in fact every other event.

This would been a great chance to meet UBS sir himself, but one more ruined opportunity I suppose.

Congrats to Arka and the entire team who made this happen . Such events will go a long way in defining the 4x4 scene in India.

Kudos to the participants & winners. My bad that my work did not allow me to take part and I had to be away from town during these dates, else it would have been fun to attend this one.

Few questions:
  • What do the folks manning the SS stages do? what do they watch out for and what is their role?
  • On what basis do points get assigned to an individual for a stage? For example if someone got 23 marks for a SS stage then what led to that? why 23 and not 25 or 20?
Cheers,
