Please read the title. He is talking about 2010. Early registrations for which open only in Apr-May for the race in Oct.

@ Karan: i was planning to do the Raid next year (2010) after doing the same circuit this year as a holiday but somehow things dont look promising at the moment.

Im assuming that you are intending to do the Adventure Category TSD format. BTW what vehicle do you intend to do in.

All the Best

Just to pep you up and your spirit, a couple of years ago a honeymoon couple drove their Zen from Mumbai and actually finished the rally. I am sure you can emulate that and not depend on anyone else. This rally being heavily supervised and professionally managed you shouldn't feel overawed by it. I am sure you can do it.

Hay Karan,

I would love to join you but i am too scared being a navigator. Though i plan to participate on a bike this year. Let me know your plan and any way i can help you.

Well, this goes back even further back. I guess the first honeymoon couple (driving a Hyundai Accent) to do the Raid was in 2005 and then yours truly (driving a stock WagonR) in 2006. Both completed the Reliability trial as it was known then.

@Karan: Trust me, till the time you know the limits of your machine, you can have a pretty safe time there barring any bad luck. Enjoy!

Hey Karan,

Great Initiative. I would like to accompany you because of the following:

1. Recently i made a trip from manali-leh
2. My MBA completes in a week & my DoJ would be quite late. So, i have about 4 months to study & plan the route.
3. I was always fascinated by this rally concept & wanted to try my hand.

A few queries to all:

Can the navigator drive too?
What are the prerequisites for participation?

Dear Karan,
I am also planning to participate in Raid de Himalaya 2010. What I have learned so far is: We need to plan it in March 2010 i.e. present month, as the entries starts from April 1st, and after that with late fee. It will take enough time to get all the documents in place (e.g. Maximum risk insurence for vehicle and pessengers, Licence from Motorsport Association of India for Driver and Navigator and other formailities. If your mood is still on please confirm. And also vehicles suggested by other Raid Drivers are: Maruti Gypsy or Maruti Esteem. I am planning to buy a new Maruti Gypsy, which is quite a difficult for any individual, so in my view together we can easily plan.

regards,
Jatinder

I just checked the Raid website. They do not have the dates for the 2010 version. Last year the early bird entries were open from 1st April 2009 to 15th May 2010.

I am thinking of particpating as well, though I am not sure if I can raise the money by then.

Hi Everyone

I am went through the Raid website and they strongly recommend that first time Raid participants should enter in the Adventure category. Unfortunately the adventure category allows minimum changes in the suspension. These are the options I have and would like some help to make a decision.

Option 1 - Participate in the Maruti Gypsy. Will have to add a roll cage and fiberglass top. I was originally thinking of upgrading the suspension but looks like they will not allow that.

Option 2 - Participate in the Maruti 800. I already have a 2" lift, which is allowed. The 800 would need some engine overhaul and a roll cage, but otherwise should be good to go. Since it is a carb engine should be able to adjust to altitude changes with new jets. Not sure if the regulations will allow that

Option 3 - Setup the Gypsy for xtreme category and hope that organizers will allow me to participate in that category.

I have to take a decision on this as all preperation for the next few months will depend on this. Any feedback is welcome

Buddy,

Prepare a gypsy and prepare it well. Try and complete the adventure category, I can bet you its not going to be easy this time. Look at the Raid route and you will be stunned.

H* I* M* A* L* A* Y* A* N**** M* O* T* O* R* S* P* O* R* T

the adventure category will provably run the same route.
