Default A New World Record.

Blow them trumpets, get Akon’s music pumpin, load up those biryanis, bring out the red carpet, and yeah don’t forget those flowers. Tantalizing India has created a New World Record! And how!
We’ve created a New World Record for perimetering India, travelling through the length and breath of the country - covering over 16,470 kms in 17 days 19 hours and 30 minutes. We’ve shattered the earlier record that was set at 19 days and 23 hours. We’ve broken the record by a solid 52 hour margin.

We started our record breaking journey on the 16th of June, 18:00 hrs from Bangalore.
We’d like to take time out to thank our families, friends, supporters, well wishers and fans for their everlasting and encouraging support throughout this endeavour. A big gracias to our sponsor partners in the form of:The official adjudicator for this record are Limca Book of Records. Limca Book of Records hasn’t authorised this as a record yet. We’ve got some documents to submit to Limca Book of Records which they will deeply scrutinize and if they find fit, will declare us as the new record holders. However, as of now, we’ve reached Bangalore and are confident that we’ve broken the record.

Default Local connection!


This is what a local daily - Mathrubhumi (18/07/2010) - had to say about this. The story was focused on the Kerala connection - Ratheesh Kumar from Cherthala!

This is indeed a racy read, fantastic drive. Congrats to the Drivers and their spirit !!

I need advice from BHPian.

I plan to go to Nagaland, specifically Mokokchung. I need some advice.

Is it wise to drive the AN Honda City from Pune to Nagaland? Will there be major issues considering the poor under keelclearance of the ANHC?
