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    Going, not going, annuals leaves applied, withdrawn, applied withdrawn and finally didn?t apply till only 4 days were left for the event.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

    The track was full of animals all round. Even on race day despite organizers best efforts, we came across cattle, camels, donkeys and sheep right on track. On recce day, the herds of sheep were big enough to wipe any tyre marks on track and left one wondering which way to go!

    the same tundra?
    Probably, Noman Saranjam and Nadir came on it to rally village to attend driver's meeting!

    There were probably 5-6 different tundra's seen during the rally weekend!

    The evening didn't last long for us, but for some it went on for quite some time, there was a musical evening arranged by locals, with some folk singers etc, but we chose to return to the rally village and relax.

    The race day morning was quite calm, until at around 9am, Asad mentioned his Jero's oil level was low. Now I have kept NPP for over 2 years and driven it on 3 rallies before and never once has it reduced oil level. Well lo n behold, I checked casually and the oil level was towards the lower level. Panick ensued, in haste while leaving Islamabad, I didn't send along the Mobil 1 Oil can which I have been usining in NPP. No one at the rally village had synthetic oil, only minerel oil and that too for diesel engines. The petrol station was PSO and only stocked mineral oil but the store room person was no where to be found at 9:10am.

    Confusion reigned for a while. Eventually Mitsuman came up with a solution, he had 400ml of STP engine oil additive/ treatment and he felt it could be added, so we did add that, afterwards oil level rose to above half on dipstick and we rushed towards the starting line for our 09:25 start. There was pandamonium near start line, every tom dick n harry had lined up their cars along the route and there was a single line passage only. And with people coming both way, I was delayed.

    I thought I managed to make it just in time, but turned out I left starting line over 40 seconds of my due time. On my GoPro vdos you will note, that both the camera were turned on after I started from the line. I even had to zero the meter while changing the gears etc, while reciting Dua's and and prayers!

    And to top it all, Almighty's message to never be complacent became extremeley clear at only minute 3 and a half, when we had the narrowest of escapes! Both of us were shaken, but Zuhaib managed to keep his cool and kept motivating me and navigating. But the damage was already done, as can be seen by our stage 1 timing. Most people had better time in stage 1. But still we are exteremely thankful to almighty for all the blessings (including the podium!).
