Well maintained Classic from Bangalore. Sorry I forgot the drivers name. His co-passenger was Suresh if I recollect correctly.

Kunal,

Great stuff buddy! You've done an exemplary job! Keep it up.

My sincere apologies for the delay on friday night!

@BolBolero: The red classic belongs to Giri Tirumale from Bangalore. His passenger was Suresh Stephen indeed.

I'll write in detail later. In the meanwhile a few pics from my camera.

@Tejas,
Thanks buddy. Waited on Friday night to meet up with all of you, but unfortunately you'll decided to stay in Lonavala. Very sorry could not catch up with you during the event also. Saw you at dinner time, but you seemed very preoccupied! My bad!
Was going through the EXAMM thread, wonderful job with the organisation. Would like to accompany you'll for any other event that you plan.

My first OTR driving a Gypsy , Thanks for Kunal , huda and every one in the red tees to make it so much fun and hassle free .
I took a slightly wrong approach with the first slush pit and got stuck , got towed out and gave it another go , probably shouldnt have gone so fast thru the slush but , damn the rush was good, had my heart pounding for a while . I chickened out on the decent , Vinay drove me through it , and was with me guiding me through the restr of the trail. Thank a ton, I learnt a lot.

Kunal - The food was super yummy. Coludnt have asked for any thing better.
Also thanks to Jigy and Mohit to keep me company.

Paras, you did well for your first OTR. We jeep guys boringly crawled down that slope, but the gypsy guys had it a bit hairy going down on brakes.

The pictures are making me drool. Wish I could have participated as a spectator. Anyway waiting for the next year. Congratulations to Kunal and Alfa_Kilo's family for doing this. A fitting tribute to Alfa_Kilo.

Default First Obstacle Of AKC Conquered

Hi,

As mine was one of the few Gypsies which cleared the first slush obstacle... posting a video of the same. Turn on the speakers & listen to the talk happening in the background...
Then look at the Master "Behram" walking cooly towards me instructing & motivating me to do what I am supposed to do & Bingo!

Thanks a Bunch Behram

Thumbs up

Kunal - you and your team were absolute ROCKSTARS!! You guys have exceeded everyone's expectations.

I missed my vehicle the most at the AKC but all the action and excitement made it worthwhile as I was the first to confirm

This was by far the best execution of a planned event I have ever seen - The planning and execution was just phenomenal considering the number of participants and the location.

The trail was just mind-blowing!!Most superlatives have been used and I am still struggling to find words to express my gratitude and joy at the AKC!!

I would like to thank you, your family, Abhimanyu's family and everyone who put in soo much effort to make this one of the MOST SUCCESSFUL off-roading events organised in the country.

It was a privilege to be a part of the AKC.

Regards,

Prasad Iyer
