    Default Earlier in the day...

    Once we had driven past Yaser's rollover, and headed up the slide and glide portion past Nawankot, our oil pressure guage somehow decided that it was gonna get stuck at H. Farooq insisted on stopping to check things, though I was in favour of driving on as everything seemed OK. Pulled to the side and Farooq did a quick check, all seemed OK and we got back on the track.

    Here an oldish black Jimny caught up with us at great pace. We were crossing a dhar and he did not have much of an issue finding his way around us, this portion was slightly dusty and we followed him for a bit but lost him after sometime. about five mins later, as we approached a big right turn on top of a dune, we saw that the Jimny was resting on the outer bank of the turn at a 45 degree angle.Its two right wheels off the ground and two people were pushing it back upright. As we overtook them they seem to have managed to get all wheels on ground and hurriedly were getting back into the car. A couple of turns later as we took a Left 120 turn at the base of a dune leading onto a CP and straightish track afterwards, we saw to our left that Khan Sb. was back behind us and was making his way down the dune. The external rollcage seemed to have kept the car intact.

    Now as soon as we had our card stamped at the CP, I floored the FJ for a full V8 launch thinking that we should have some fun with the Jimny on the straight track. Then I somehow recalled the gusto and spirit with which the two guys were pushing the Jimny back up and getting back in, I thought that God knows what these guys are upto and maybe they were competitive in their category. So the racer gave in to the gentleman, and I pulled the car completely off the track and waited for the Jimny to pass. Pass it did and I remember the next few seconds in slow motion when one hand emerged from the right window of the car waving us a thank you and another hand other from the left window doing the same. At this point I saw a piece of paper fly past the left of our FJ and I remember saying to myself that "no, that didn't actually happen, it can't be that!". Lo and behold, the next instant we see the Jimny takes a 90 degree turn off the track as the guys turn around and start looking for their timing card. Yes, in thanking us for giving them way the navigator had dropped the timing card from his hand! One can only imagine the intensity of the kind words of appreciation emanating from the driver's mouth here....

    Yes, it does seem that they found their timing card and as we hit the Khabar track soon afterwards, they came in for a third overtake of the FJ and this time no thank you hands were visible.

    Yes, the black Jimny was indeed Mehboob Khan's kamani bearing 401. Between the semi-rollover and the card dropping, they probably lost a good 3-4 mins along with the podium. Now the 3 podium winners apart from being reputed drivers have superior cars with much better suspensions. How these guys ended up there with an older model car with leaf springs, I just cannot say, buts hats off to them and all the best to them for the future!

    SK, yeh to sirf qasim hi samajh sakta hai ke rollover karnay mein kitna maza aata hai .... further analysis of rollover footage reveals that if i subtract one mistake that cost me some seconds, my time and qasims time on that section are within 1-2 secs of each other till that turn ... alas the surf is no evo.. and the Lord almighty rightly gave me a kick in the back side for being a smug brat after the qualifying showboating....

    Default Kebab mein Haddi! Dew mein Bull!!??

    @yaser: Naah the deal for the dew commercial is now completely off the table. Instead heads will roll if you ever show the video to anyone in your office! You should infact come up with a backup story for your boss saying that the competitors had tampered with your car making you lose control at high speed in an unexplainable manner. Evidence of tampering is clues left behind somewhere under the seat, which only emerged after the rollover! Thereby you can prep your boss on how you need to strike back in full force next year

    Yeah, the undulations aren't that apparent. from the base of this mound to the top the elevation changes from 331 ft to 348ft... at the base of the mound i was doing around 110kph .... by the top of the mound it mustve dropped to between 90-100kph... and well you saw the rest... by the grace of Allah we emerged from the wreck without a scratch...

    Alas there was no "cholistani" desert lady, otherwise i wouldve started a new life in the desert , there were teetar, batair, a small rodent species and a couple of birds of prey towards the end... our time was passed, sorting out the stuff in the car, taping the windscreen and honing our target shooting skills at the expense of that very "redbull" can (nice catch that by the way )

    Moral of the story: Redbull and Mountain Dew dont mix... and redbull does give you wings
