Hi Guys,

An Update, since most O-Team members are getting their vehicles ready for the Recce's.

Recce#2 & Recce#3 are being combined, to allow everyone more time to prepare their vehicles

In May there will be ONE Recce (Recce#2&3) on 9th May,2010.

All Organizers and Competitors who wish to participate please confirm.

Regards,

Arka.

PS - Any outstation competitor who had planned to attend 02-05 or 16-05 recce's please confirm, necessary arrangements will be made for them.

Awesome, Arka ...the original dates of recce #2 and recce #3, I wouldnt have been able to make it, as i would be out-of-station. Now, this should work perfectly for me. You can count me in for May 9th recce.

Arka,

Request you to post up learnings from your recce's as its a impossible task for many non Chennai members to attend recce and TPC. May be with your suggestions we can prepare our vehicles for the TPC.

Arka,

I was talking in respect to the many Recce's done by the Organizing teams which could throw more light in preparing a vehicle than the website, as the site is outdated and more specific to Jeeps. Newer obstacles encountered in the trail chosen for TPC while have tougher obstacles i guess and so will we have to take more precautions and protection.

Hi Prithvi,

The website is updated every month.

Please explain what is outdated about the Vehicle Preparation on the Website?

If you read the Vehicle Preparation there is enough information for all 4WDs.

The Obstacles and clustered into Special Stages (3-5 Obstacles) and 8-10 Special Stages per day.

The Exact sequence of Obstacles and Special Stages even I will know a few hours before the start of the competition, each day .

TPC10 will be much more tougher than TPC09, in terms of Duration, No. of Special Stages, and navigating the distance between Special Stages.

The Recce are done to check the feasability of doing a particular Stretch of River Bed, give the O-Team members a feel of the terrain, let prospective competitors try out various mods.

Regards,

Arka

Hi Allan,

But as a prospective Competitor you are most welcome.

Hi Doc,

You have a few months in hand and you can definitely form a team (3 Vehicle/6 Competitors) of Force Gurkhas and compete in TPC10.

or a Team from ROCK, and rock TPC10.

Regards,

Arka
