Went for a recce of the final track to be used by the SUV's for the 4 Guna 4 next week.

There is a stadia course that will be some man made obstacles to be cleared followed by and out door trail.

One of the challenges is going down the "Bandh" (a mud dam) wall crossing a slushy bottom and then turning around and climbing the "Bandh" again. Both descent and ascent are accompanied by a tight 90degree turning to avoid going over the other side!!

And of course if you do not keep enough momentum you will get struck in the slush like I did the first time around. Yes we will have a recovery in place so even if you do get bogged down you will be retrieved!!

If it does we will move more "inwards"...longer slush to be covered!!

I will come and do some photography, and maybe help you guys around a bit. Till I get the front suspension issues sorted out, I am not doing any trail driving or mountain driving on the safari.
The noises have vanished mysteriously, but may come back anytime!

Sure the spectators can see the special course at the fair grounds. Then they can enjoy there while you do the obstacles out side. Lots of stuff for family from Bungee Jump to .....

The difficult course will have seven challenges in the Leisure Valley fairgrounds and two on the trail.

A slush pit with sudden drops and zig zag profile
A high camber slope turn
A steep mud pile
A mud pile followed by a ditch
A rock pile cross
A course with alternating camber
A ditch crossing on logs

The soft course will only do four of the above challenges and tow trail challenges.

Looking forward to competition today. Hope Tanveer gets lots of pictures and stories to share.
