yep suddenly I see that Rishi and you have fallen behind others . You guys were the top 2. Don't know how others managed so much support. I could only muster 218 votes and that is before I got approved for TBHP.
All the best. You guys are into top 100 easily.Just if u can , then try improving the application.

Thanks for remembering me Tanveer , but I kind off gave up on the TGDC quite some time back, what with bogus voting and all.

Anyways as per wifey and my Campaign Manager "We have a greater agenda on hand - Ladakh Trip".

Many thanks to all those who voted for me and all the best to remaining teams from T-BHP!!!

Actually if you read their blog, they are taking note of bogus voting. They basically go through the votes and email list, and then see for patterns.
for example xyz123 xyz234 etc., etc.,
If they find such stuff, the chances of members go poof.
why not take the cedia to ladakh?

Chief. I've tried a couple of times to send the verification SMS to the number provided but surpisingly get a message back stating "Server is busy please try after some time."!! Could you please bring it to your colleagues attention. Thanks.

I'n all probability I guess I'm the last T-BHPían to post this request. Been travelling like crazy and only managed to put up my profile this weekend. Fortunately with the help of good friends and colleagues, I'm currently at spot 140 out of about 990 applicants and the next few hours will tell if I get into the top 100.

Thank you Manson for pointing out my faux paus of not posting this earlier but rather late than never I guess.

My link is http://www.greatdrivingchallenge.com...5640823009001/

Just about six hours left for the voting to end and keeping my fingers crossed. Thanks a ton to all of you for this informative thread and let's hope a fellow Team-BHPian is the winner.

Cheers.

Rajesh

@rpanicker: Voted for you!

@FordManchau: How do you want us to improve our application? Please do put in some feedback. Would help us a ton!

As it stands, top 30 has 2 Team-Bhp members - rishi and my team. It's been a pulse-pounding journey so far, and the organizers have been very vocal about fake voting!

Cheers!
Payne

I've been watching the GDC unfold from day one and gotta say : This was BRILLIANT marketing by HM-Mitsubishi. Not once in the past 5 years had so many people visited an HM-Mitsubishi website, or had their brands created such a buzz in the market. I know for a fact that other brands are watching closely and will be coming out with their own in-house versions of the GDC soon.

Coming from a manufacturer which has effectively over-slept (while the competition walked all over) was most unexpected. I hope some of this new found vigour rubs off on HM's product planning division (new Lancer, EVO X anyone?).

And the website they created is really good indeed.
But I still wonder if this has reached to people well. I still see people in my office who haven't heard of all these stuff.
HM had to do frequent TV Ads!

GTO you spoke out of my heart.

Mitsubishi cars have always been close to my heart but for the HM association in india.

Lets hope good sense prevails and HM - Mitsubishi brings along some more contemporary models and bring back the aura that the lancer bought to the brand when i was first launched in late 90's

Well, the top 100 results are out.
I spotted trammway, btirthankar, freewheelburnin, d_payne, autopsyche, Rishi_kapoor in the top 100. (I guess the site is experiencing heavy traffic right now)
Congrats to all T-BHPians who have made it to the Top 100.

It's very difficult to match every application and your handles! I give up now.
