It's the same one from Expo display. There should be few more shots of Thar from Jaggu. I'm sure others also have taken some.

Seems like everybody had a lot of fun and the terrain looks really good for a offroading event and the cars look even better. Is the black scorpio registered as kA-xx-xx-6415 by any chance?

@Rudra,Nice to know he also came into the track.He was insisting to be a spectator after reaching the place. So I was curious to see him on the track.
@Deepu, share your first experience man(In coorg you didn't get down on the track.)

Your jeep would have felt termors who is this driving, Siddu would have rocked your jeep.
Next your jeep would be in Classified section for sale.

Thanks Rudro! I really got to learn a lot from many members. Thanks to you & Jaggu for sitting next to me in most parts of the trail. It really helped!

Hey Shishir,
Thanks buddy for asking.
It was a very nice trail and fantastic people around.
I really learnt a lot, met up with many members of TBHP & JT and of course, realized how brilliant a GYPSY is! (with an absolute newbie like me behind the wheels of a bone stock vehicle)
Will definitely write a little more about my experience in some time.

Cheers Everybody,
Deepak

PS: @Vijay, your 540 with those sandgrips looks macho! But, Viji's 550 with those Mudzillas was looking killer
PPS: @Sha: LOL!!
Whatever, but i really missed you guys on the trail!

Deepak, sometimes be carefull when you follow Rudra. At most difficulty if you had crossed an obstacle, he will ask you to do it again for shooting in different angles..

@Sha: i don't know how, but siddu will manage to break something or the other in other's vehicle when ever he drives. it worked even in shahnawaz spidey. can you guess what did he manage to break in spidey??

Siddu did most of the obstacles as if it aint one. Brilliant.
Particularly at one spot where most guys had issues, he made it look too simple.

I've began to realise that its not the machine, but the man behind it that makes all the difference.

Me too noticed, but it was too late. So I thought let it be. Any way it is still faraway for it to be parked at KOR

Nothing much only 1 lamp and the top of your external air intake .
Blame it on the shrubs all around.
