yes. The trail was quite Unforgiving at some areas. We the first group went through some trails that was by passed by the next groups as they considered it to be too difficult or too dangerous. . But we went through and I have the fibre cladding of my 340 broken in many places. Dont know if I can find a replacement for the same.

Guys,
The much awaited Banglore OTR, shows there was camaraderie all over the place and the trial too looks like a tough one and the machines,,,I am sure more pics will be posted soon and the performance report.
Wish I was there to meet Mr. Rudra Sen.
Nice to see Deepak and his immaculately restored CJ3B there.
Regards,

I am glad the Scorpio team completed this time. Generally they are let down by the electronics of their steeds.

Few observations:

This trail is too vast an area.
Too many cars to keep proper track.
Too many obstacles (for regular non OTR drivers). Eats up serious time.

I didn’t shoot with any other lens than 70-200. Pictures are cropped as I felt. I had to change Exposure Value randomly due to frequent harsh light conditions. Consider them as 4H/4L for cameras. Overall quality of pictures are acceptable and thanks to full frame sensor camera.

I just didn’t get chance to do what I thought of doing. With Deepak there was no shooting but working as a navigator.

Sir, you may label this as wishful thinking but I did expect you there with your gorgeous jeep.

I’m not happy with the quantity I shot because I didn’t get enough scope. According to me there’s no specific angle or stance for OTR photography. It happens as they move. Depending on the cars and locations, pictures talk.

Waiting for those cars in front to clear up. Can't really wait after wearing new shoes.

Deepak has gone to check what's happening ahead. Just to decide whether to take his three months old baby or not.
