Rakshabandhan OTR

We from KOLKATA OFFROADERS had May day otr, Valentines day otr, Fifa world cup final day Otr, so why not a Rakshabandhan OTR?

The result was we had approximately 50% less participants!

So less participants means less fun? Absolutely no! We had a blast!

The destination was again selected as Pandua. This site never disappoints. Every time we find out new obstacles. Today's fun part was, obstacles with slush!

As-usual the OTR was conducted under the guidance of Sir Uday Bhan Singh. We are blessed to have him as our mentor.

Special thanks to Adhiraj Da, Bhpian 1100D, Kaustav, Sounak, Rivu for their flawless marshaling, spotting and recoveries.

At the end i had some fun with my Etios too on the slush!
Though it got bogged down once in the Sand and had to be recovered by winching it out but it was fun.

Sharing the pics-

The first OTR of 2019.

This time also we chose Pandua as the spot to go off the road. This is one place which amaze us every time with new challenges and obstacles.

Finding new paths for the trail drive in the first half was fun and on the second part we took over the obstacles.

So 14 4WD's were all set to flirt with the dirt on a winter Sunday morning. The weather was amazing, the track was challenging and our suv's were capable!

And as we tell every-time, we are blessed to have Sir Uday Bhan Singh as our mentor.

Let the fun begin -

The line up-

Samba,
Thanks for sharing such a wonderful experience with all of us. All the pictures are beautiful as usual. Beautiful guidance for sure and discretely executed.

The Duster AWD pictures of Toto Bhai gives me a lot of confidence.

Lovely coverage of the Off Road Event Samba !! As usual, it is needless to say the supreme photography from your end. Great Camera work brother. Fortunately, I was behind the wheel most of the times and did not get much opportunity to be behind the lenses this time. Sharing some pictures from my end :

First OTR of 2020

Date- 19.01.2020

Place- Pandua

Duration of the OTR - 10 am to 2-30 pm.

This is the first OTR where i took my Duster AWD.
Most of the pics are clicked by Bhpian Soumiksett. He was the co-passenger in my car and did a fantastic job in clicking the action pics.

When the break-over angle is not sufficient!

Pics & report : Offroading with Kolkata Offroaders-img_1521.jpg

In these types of obstacles, I was missing the articulation of a body on frame suv! In monocoque crossovers the wheels get airborne more easily. My Duster's right rear wheel was airborne.

The tow hook provided by Renault is very small. Normal shackles were not fitting in. So we had to look for a makeshift arrangement.

Great pictures. It looks like a really fun event. I wish we had events like this in Bangalore. It must've felt great to put your rides into action, where they belong.

There is so much offroad potential here. We need more events and networking opportunities. There is a huge community to tap into.

Hey suneel, there are a number of groups in Bangalore with whom you can offroad. I had a similar problem when I shifted to Blr in 2018, when I was not able to connect to these like minded offroaders. Now things are better

There is an event this Saturday infact which I will be missing out on unfortunately. You can check with the contacts if you can still join if you like.

Thanks for the information. I did hear about this one event, but sadly I will be out of town that weekend as well. Hopefully I can join in on the next one.

It is heartening to hear that there are a lot of active offroaders in the city. Hope to see you out there someday!
