    Default Jhal Magsi Desert Challenge 2013 - News and Updates Thread!

    Since its awfully quiet on the thread and since I am playing with keys while the shahsawars are playing with steering wheels, I just thought I would do something useful today and start a thread for race updates and news while we wait for participants to get back. Here are the PakWheelers I know attending the rally:

    Doc Nadeem Naeem - Vehicle : Nissan Patrol Pickup - Navigator : Zohaib Jadoon
    Asad Marwat - Vehicle : Mitsubishi Pajero - Navigator : Shahzad aka Pinks
    Qasim Saidhi - Vehicle : Mitsubishi Evolution - Navigator : Rizwan Buttar

    Will try and get some info on whats going on and request anyone else in the know of things to share photos, videos, news, updates, experiences, ramblings etc or anything that you may feel is relevant! Even if it isn't, lets make sure we keep this going as, make no mistake about it: Jhal Magsi is perhaps in many ways the only motorsport event of its kind in the world!

    Race Schedule:
    January 11, 2013 : Recce and Scruteneering
    January 12, 2013 : Qualification
    January 13, 2013 : Race and Prize Ceremony

    Best of Luck and a Safe Driving to all particpants! SK
    PS: Some Pics and Full Results Below. Thanks to all photograhpers and posters!

    ^^^^^ Some Quick Observations:

    - Firstly, hats off to Qasim Saidhi's calculation last year that he would lose 5 minutes if he did it last 20 kms on three tires!
    - Secondly, hats off to NN's "slow" driving in the second stage where he still clipped a minute off his previous stage time!
    - Ronnie is faster on the Vigo than on his Evo!

    ^^ very nicely captured by Aqeel Bhai. The spinning wheels and the exhaust smokes tell the story!

    Although the river crossing wasn't deep. But flow of water was fairly slow, so plenty moss had accumalated on the stones and was exteremely slippery!

    Have a sad information to share, our veteran rally driver Syed Abbas Akbar, Champion of 2006 Cholistan Rally on white/yellow Evolution and podium holder of many other rallies, met his Creator this morning. He had a heart attack that he could not survive. May Allah All Mighty rest his soul in peace and help his family and friends through this difficult time.

    Abbas Akbar was driving the white 4.0 liter white Vigo in Jhal and the last Mithi.

    He was an exceptionally helpful and humble person, who went out of the way to help fellow drivers. Had hardly known him till early 2010 but when he came to know that I have purchased my 1st Evo from Zafar Magsi and plan to use it for rallies, he somehow found my number and called me. Of course I knew him and was thrilled to have received his call. He congratulated me on getting the Evo and shared his experiences, dos and donts of Evo, procurement of parts etc. He sent me a copy of Evo's owner manual, which is a very rare document to find. He also sent me many Evo parts that he had in Stock after selling his Evo.

    A great man indeed, completely selfless. Dont have words to express my sadness, but he went to a better place for sure.

    Will always miss you Abbas Bhai, rally grounds will never be the same without you. May Allah All Mighty bless you and place you in heaven for eternity,,,, Ameen.

    Inaa lillah e wa inna ilehe rajiun. Sad news. Although I never got a chance to speak to him directly, I remember seeing him and listened to some conversations with him at Jhal and Cholistan last year. He definitely stood out amoungst the rally crowd and came across as a thorough gentleman. May Allah bless his soul and grant peace to his family and friends.

    Inna Lillahe-wa inna elaihi rajioun.

    Met Abbas Bhai first time briefly at the starting line of Cholistan rally 2010. He was on a LHD TLC 100 1FZ (essentially same as mine) So went upto him to support him. Unfortunately he had suspension failure in stage 1.

    In 2011 Jhal, his Vigo 4X4 stopped working n he got stuck in Nadi, I got him out with NPP. He got 3rd place in B category in the race.

    These last two rallies (mithi n jhal), he competed on his Vigo 4.0, he was always very humble n cordial when ever we met. May Allah bless his Soul.
