This edition saw participation from Mahindra customers from Sakleshpur and other neighbouring area like Bengaluru.
The event was flagged from Kadamane Estate in Saklespur and participating vehicles included the Scorpio, Bolero and the Mahindra Thar CRDe 4×4. The drive gave customers a chance to explore the natural terrain of Sakleshpur and also witness the capabilities of Mahindra’s tough and rugged SUVs.
The Off-Road Trophy competitors got a chance to demonstrate their off-road driving skills through different stages of obstacles. The competitors tackled a set of three obstacles carefully crafted under the Mahindra Adventure team’s expertise – from steep inclines and descends to traversing over slippery boulders, each obstacle proving to be more challenging than the earlier.
