Why do they even bother? You mean they have such public events and use street tyres?

If its the same bridgestone road tyres they'd used in chennai, it must have been disappointing.

Freak that is some serious screw up. That Pajero is stuck bad. I think bad driver. That could still have been drivable in the Pajero or maybe there is more to it. Do you have the more pics?

Maybe they asked everybody to bring their hearts in mouth.

Was expecting better pics.

However, as he said... Let's give him some more time to post the 'real' pics!

Heart migrates to mouth when dealer shows you the almost 19 lac out the door cost. Nice specs on that thing though. Should get you thru some puddles.

And me thought Pajero was a serious off-roader. But the pix posted come nowhere close.

I have handled worse on my Corolla.

Mmm... I saw just one Pajero (maybe the only participant) driving over some clear path.

Now who's heart is supposed to be in who's mouth?


Atleast, if we had the auto's doing this, the title might have been appropriate! Hahahaaaa

This thread feels like an insult to Pajero and a disapointment to all offroading enthusiasts .

Sorry, but I think this is leading nowhere. Moderators kindly consider locking this thread. We surely don't want to mock at anyone.

I think this thread turned out to be one damp squib. I think we all agree it is not the fault of Pajero which has impressive off-road record. Either the event was poorly planned without having enough knowledge of offroading, or we didn't see any photos of the real thing.

Closing thread.
