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    Going, not going, annuals leaves applied, withdrawn, applied withdrawn and finally didn?t apply till only 4 days were left for the event.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

    We did have a very bizarre / funny incident during the qualifying, when one of the Jimnys, while taking a sharp left turn toppled on its side to the right. It was too far to capture anything discernable on camera, but anyway, we radioed that it has happened, so qualifying was stopped. Now in its enthusiam, many volunteer spectatres, / supporters started rushing towards the Jimny. Also there were Isuzu diesel ambulances parked there for rescuse and one of them went full throttle towards the incident side. And suddendly we heard a very loud bang and the ambulance engine let go with plumes of smoke coming out of the engine! It was hilarios to say the least................the rescuer needed the rescuing! The qualifying Jimny had simply rolled onto the side on very thick deep sand with a very soft landing and when there were 3-4 people gathered they lifted it back to upright position and the drivers restarted his car and went on with his business! Another spectator in his enthusiasm to reach for help took a short cut and while trying to cross the track he got beached in the middle of the track. Took 7-8 people 7-8 minutes of rocking n pushing to get him out!

    BTW not really sure if that original Jimny went on to qualify or not, because I think the incident happened in pre-qualifying recce!

    This white Y60 Safari of Sarfraz Dhanji had a 2JZ-GTE engine transplanted and and the turbo whoosh was almost spine tingling. As usual he was plagued by reliability issues associated with our Jugarri transplants.

    I did ask Sarfraz bhai about it, previously he would complain that the original TB42E didn't have enough power, now Power bohut hai.........................par Gaari kaabu may nahin aati!!!

    Ronnie's qualifying time was second fastest until at the very end the long wheel base Barchundis Jimny, which just flew around the track beat it by 6-7 seconds. During the race the Jimny could not match the Vigos and had a breakdown as well!

    That was all of the qualifying pics.

    After qualifying, Mitsu wanted to go on a recce, as he had arrived late the day before. The plan was to go on Hasan's 1KD <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:City w:st="on">vigo</st1:City></st1:place>. So Asad and I also tagged along for a second recce.

    There are some track pix as well of the surroundings, which i will post later.

    Overall it was a very interesting and demanding track. It was almost a constant two hands on steering...........with constant corrections and lots of .............................damns! under the breath track!

    With my depleted reserves due to flu, cough and all the rest...............it was the most taxing rally drive I have done so far!
