Hey GTO, take a look at the pic where you see his truck. He already got the roll bar and huge tyres!

Hey Rt

nice write up. got too engrossed reading it that my dad even shouted at me for not listening to what he was saying.

have u got the results of the rally or not.

good to read that the u all three escaped unscathed after the accident. the damage looks real bad.

hope even i can take htis kind of rally someitme in future, but with somebody who can roll out results fast.

hey rt,
me finally back after a long vacation. realised that since me cannot do the rally cause of my age just packed my bags and headed to a place where i would not get a single news report on the rally. you have no idea how jealous i have been cause i couldnt do the rally.
however from your report i guess it was not all that cool doing the rally. i mean i know how stupid it is not to know the results even 1 and a half weeks after the rally.
i guess it was fun actually doing the rally and till the time you crashed but then a little jealousy of mine can go away knowing that the rally didnt go off well atleast in some areas of organisation.
guys sorry if the post sounds stupid but just venting some frustation.

Oh yea, the results eventually turned up, AFTER they decided to change the rules AFTER the rally was over!!

Anyways, finished 23 / 108 / 108 : Leg 1 / Leg 2 / Overall. (Blame the navigators )

I found this link, Delhi guys won it.

http://www.bhartiteleventures.com/ne...e2005/1jun.htm

Quote:
All the 200 participating teams were connected with their near and dear ones on the Airtel all India network, using Sony Ericsson phones. It was for the first time in the history of Indian motor sports that the most sophisticated, Hi-tech GPS on-board data loggers were installed to track and monitor all participating cars. The on board computer in these hi-tech GPS data loggers randomly generates virtual time controls, which is used to eliminate human errors to track and collate the winner results.
No mention about the software error and the resulting mess...

Nobody got 1 crore

That was the TOTAL money put forward by Airtel. The largest single prize was Rs.30 lakhs for the overall winner. That was won by Rai Virender Singh, from Delhi (or thereabouts).
