    By Desert Devil:

    Going, not going, annuals leaves applied, withdrawn, applied withdrawn and finally didn?t apply till only 4 days were left for the event. This time there was lots of confusion with the organisers owing to one issue or the other, which resultantly put us all at a very tough spot. In the last 3 days NN went extremely ill and was on double dose of antibiotics. Alhamdollilah he recovered a bit few hours before the flight and hence decided to go. Till that time, Pinks and myself were nothing but totally lost on how to handle the situation if at all NN and Jadoon can?t make it and we had to proceed alone. We were relieved when we got a call from NN at 3 pm to pack and let?s go.

    We had sent our vehicles to Karachi in the trailer a week in advance as the roll cage had to be installed there. We had our flights booked for Thursday night, 29th Nov 2012. Osman Bhai had arranged for our pick up, boarding and lodging (Thanks Mitsu).

    Left for Mithi in a convoy of 4 vehicles early morning on Friday 30, Nov. The day was a strike called by all parties so practically all the roads were deserted. We made it to Mithi just after lunch. After putting our stuff in the designated lodging area, we had our vehicles inspected for ?tech?. After registration we left for reccee of the track in 3 vehicles and returned after sun fall. Osman bhai joined us late night from Karachi as he had to take care of some issues at his office.

    The qualification round was very interesting and balloting was done for the firing order. NN had to go as the first participant, MitsuMan on 7th and I was on the 20th. By the time my turn came, the track was in shambles with deep ruts and extremely bad bumps. Anyway it went well and after qualifying we went in Hassan?s Vigo for yet another reccee.

    The next day was ?the day?. Nadir Magsi came first in qualifying hence he started his run at 9 am. NN time was at 9:25 mine was at 9:45 and Mitsu was at 10:55. The track was not what we saw a day earlier and the vehicles were all over the track. Bouncing, sliding, drifting? u name any stunt and it was there.

    The first round of odd 95 kms was done fine by both the vehicles, however the 2nd round one was real tough one owing to deep ruts created by racing vehicles. I gained few mins in the first one whereas NN did pretty well in the 2nd one. I can still hear the echos of Shehzad (pinks) laughter when we would go off track hitting ?bana? bushes, and at one time a very big bush and would then curse either the track, the tyres, the animals on the track and sometimes myself . He proved to be a true Pink Panther pushing and pushing and pushing me to the limit in driving with his excellent navigational skills as well as sense of humor (cough cough)

    The result was a blessing from Allah Almighty, something never to be forgotten and has been posted already.

    Many thanks to the entire team for making this one never to be forgotten event.

I had assumed that my first stage let down meant I was 4th. A bit disappointed, but still thankful that we finished in one piece and NPP mashaallah was as usual absolutely trouble free.

    We had late lunch after a shower and just chilled. The organizers decided to play the most bizarre political songs in the background. We watch our vdo footage/ pix and chatted and slowly packed our stuff and time passed gradually.

    Asad, pinks and Zuhaib had gone to the stage where ceremony was going to take place. We could hear the speaches on loudspeakers. Mitsu, I, Doc Zahid and Salman were chatting in our camp, until they started to announce the result (backwards from D category). So I asked everyone, lets go we need to take pics of Asad taking the award and prize etc. When I got there, category C was being announced, I positioned myself to take pics along with numerous other people, camera men and news channels capturing the ceremony.

    Next came category B announcement, and when I was capturing Ronnie patels's 1st position cup give away, i heard an organizer asking, Doctor Sb, what are you doing down there, come up on stage, you are being called next. Imagine the confusion that ensued. the stairs were full of photographers, I didn't know where Zuhaib was, and neither did Asad, pinks and Zuhaib know where I was. Asad n Pinks pushed Zuhaib towards the cheif guest, while i some how managed to hurl myself onto the stage. Didn't know what to do with my camera and camera bag, so just aologised to Nadir Magsi, and left it on table in front of him, where he was sitting on the stage!

    Anyway both Zuhaib n I made it to chief guest to receive our trophy, but confusion continued, Zuhaib asked the cheif guest to give trophy to me, he looked at me and I said, no give it to him and eventually sense prevailed and we both held the trophy for photographers.

    Immediately after that Asad n Pinks received their trophy and than it was hugs all round between all of us. It was one of the most pleasant surprises one can ever imagine. We had nicked the podium from one the very strong contenders by a margin of less than a minute!

    @NN what a time it was......ufffff!!!!

That never happend NN was no where to be found. He was on full steam in the 2nd run and did cover up to a great extent for his lost time in the first one.
    The dust was felt left my NN on the 2nd round but NN was zoom zoom zoooooooooooommmm!!!
