    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!

    I had thought that the body bushes on this CJ / M38 are flexing to give it that lean. That is the case, but looking at the front leaf spring end it seems that the frame is flexing too. [Not sure if] This is probably the military jeep with the light gun mounts which was the only jeep ever to have a shackle reversal and rear coil spring along with the leafs. Seems to be a Quetta favourite for performance arts.... Also appears that it was running a 2400cc 2LT engine!

    For first timers these guys did amazingly well on qualification and fairly decent on the race (first stage time is almost as good/bad as ours last year). More power to them!

    Mubarik @nn, After years of hard work and dedication, you have finally earned the right to claim dinner for your photographic efforts!

    PS: Waisey does the longer wheelbase of the Vigo put less pressure on the front camber or what? It seems to not even mind being on two wheels!

    It is probably misleading in that pic, I think counter steer had already begum in that pic.

    OK Guys, have worked out this new way of letting you all see the rally vdo.

    Here is all of stage 1 of Jhal Magsi Rally 2012 captured by GoPro on Asad's Pajero. I have speeded up the vdo roughly 4 times, so the whole stage can be seen in less than 15 minutes, audio is also increased in speed so you wont be able to understand what is being said, but engine note keeps things interesting!

    Ok, here we go, stage 2 of Jhal rally, the initial Putt section is somewhat un-interesting, but after that its good!

    Note how people on vehicles n motorbikes come and ride on track, putting everyone at risk!

    I suppose to improve vehicle weight balance and hence handling !

    This I suppose will be called a mid engined vehicle, but with engine behind front wheels and passenger cell behind it rather than the usual configuration, where engine is in front of rear wheels and passenger compartment in front of that!
