    Alhamdolillah, IJC Rally Team is back after a very succesful participation in Thar Mithi Desert Challenge.

    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    Going, not going, annuals leaves applied, withdrawn, applied withdrawn and finally didn?t apply till only 4 days were left for the event.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.

But definitely need to look into it.
    It seems to be a common issue with rally goers as some others seems to have faced similar issues in the past where the end of the rally was not captured for no apparent reason...

    Thumbs up Hurray..................we do have full recordings!

    With due apologies to GoPros...................................have recovered all recocordings. It seems that the recording for one hour and 4 and a half minute was saved and then further recording was made in a second file and continued till the end. Have seen all four now, i.e two runs with two camera. The confusion was that the original recording starts in say file GoPro0275.mp4, when it stops in this file and saves, it records the remaining vdo in file by name of Go0010275.mp4! Now because I had set the file view to view by name, this second file is shown not next to the GoPro0275 file but well before all GoPro***** files. When i was rechecking, I thought that these were earlier recordings and hence stacked up before, and initially I thought they were portions of recce run, but than it all cleared up. So essentially the last 4 numbers i.e 0275 remains same, but the first bit changes.

    So we are all good!

    Doc/ Libra, i believe this is a firmware issue which plagues some HD Hero 2 cameras... happens more when youre recording at higher frame rates. I saw a number of posts on amazon highlighting this problem when i was researching getting my gopro. I believe gopro issued some sort of firmware update for this problem which can be downloaded from their site.

    I guess not... just saw doc NNs last post ... glad to hear its all there..... and oh btw Congratulations to you guys!!! Looking forward to further successful rallies...

    Default Asad Marwat & Pinks - Qualifying Run



    We can now relate to Asad when he says : " I can still hear the echos of Shehzad (pinks) laughter ....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) IJC Rally Team makes history,  Thar Mithi Desert Rally 2012 - smiley wink "

    Excellent driving skills and vehicle control by the DesertDevil, I think you can sense that the track is much rougher than NN's run and that the light SWB Pajero is comparatively more of a palmful to control compared to the bulky NPP. Car seems to perform wonderfully well in the sand, which BTW appears much deeper and softer than anything in Cholistan or the Jhal Magsi nadi.

    This is amazing stuff. I never thought it's that difficult. And i am sure this type of driving must be requiring some special grip on steering, brakes, maintaining speed and overall a lot of experience. Congrats Dr sb and Asad bhai.
