No Wonder i saw so many snickered MM vehicles in mangalore! I just saw a MH reg white camper outside my office @ Gold finch a while ago!

Looking forward to the entire report.

OT: The black 540 in pic #4(ka09)- is it a private vehicle? it seems to have a government registration #

@ James, even I noticed the registration number.

Must be a Govt auctioned vehicle still running with the old number. I see several of them on Bangalore roads.

The rain soaked highways towards Mangalore via Kushalnagar and Coorg made the journey even more spectacular in the Mahindra Monsoon Challenge, here are some pictures to prove it. We saw Day 2 end with team T. Sasikumar and M Prakash taking the lead. In 2nd place, Kartick Maruti and S. Sankar Anand and in 3rd place, Sanjay Takle and navigator Mustafa.

Hi Nakoola/ GTO

Thanx for brief update of the success of the team-BHP team in the rally. Fortunately I got the update as soon as rults were announced as BBLOST is a very good friend of mine.

Please post some good pix of the team in action. Thats what is missing in the update.

Also this will give us a better update on the THAR and its handling in a rally.

Waiting for the update from the horses' mouth. Both of them.

Stuck to this one till the end

Kaushik
