There was no Vento, but you can do Explore in any car.

In Xplore - note the name and spellings - we had Alto, Punto, Santro, Zen, City this year. The route is designed for cars. A bit of sand here or there but very much doable in a car. Of course higher ground clearance the better but in it self not a deterrence.

@knightrider_25 : Why wrong choice? Can you elaborate please? I would think Elantra has enough ground clearance and not too much over hang.

Yes. They are bolted on strong; through the fender lining to metal plates placed behind.

Actually, you are right, it has sufficient ground clearance but wheel base is too long as a result we kept beaching down on sandy trails from engine compartment to the rear muffler tip and with all our luggage, the ground clearance actually decreased during rally.

Please find the pic taken during the rally by desert storm crew, which clearly shows the problem.

Congrats Oldmonk on winning the NDure Category of Desert Storm 2014!!!

Quote:
The 12th Maruti Suzuki Desert Storm, the annual six-day marathon motorsport event, ended here today after traversing approximately 2,200 kilometers of the difficult desert terrain.

The top prize in the Rally Ndure category went to Satish Gopalkrishnan and navigator Savera D'Souza, driving a Grand Vitara for Team Maruti Suzuki. Satish, the software guru from Bangalore, is the man who developed the TSD meter to change the face of time-speed-distance rallying in the country.

What is this TSD meter you developed?

OldMonk has made Casio Programmable to do jobs that are needed to ensure quick calculations for running in TSD Rally. Amazingly almost all top rallyists in TSD rally's end up using this.
