We start at 8am with breakfast and some GoKarting in the Formula Mondiales at Kart Cave. Flag-Off will be at 9am. 53km later, we will reach Ocean County and brace ourselves for the 20km of Off-roading. Redbull is gonna be there to energise us. Once we're done with our Lake crossing, Rock climbing, steep descent thru dense forestation and some sliding thru slush, it will be back to Kart Cave for Biryani and mementos for all participating teams.

See you all at 8am.

Report and pics weren't put up earlier coz I left for Kuttikkanam immediately after the event. The next weekend was the INRC Rally of Kerala where I was to drive the 0 car.

The event went off very well. As always, it started with breakfast at Kart Cave and GoKarting for the kids after which the Redbull team flagged off the cars.
53 kms. later, everyone reached Ocean County and were flagged off for the 20kms. of Off-roading by the on-site Redbull team.
Then on, it was flat smooth dirt metamorphosing to rough rock strewn paths, downhill into the lake, across it into the narrow valley, then up to the top of the hill where everyone parked for a pic. And then down the steep gradient into the dense forest, another water crossing followed by some treacherous undulating paths that tested the axle articulation of all vehicles to the max. Once through, it was onto the final finish hump that everybody crossed with joy and relief. Joy for having completed one of the most challenging 4X4 courses ever and relief for having done it without damage to any vehicle.
Back to Kart Cave for 'apna hyderabadi biryani' after which everyone got their trophies for successful completion of the Kart Cave 4X4 Challenge.

Enjoy the pics.
