Thank you all for the well wishes, all and each prayer is desperately required. Saqib (Janj) and I will surely try to be competitive but reaching the Podium requires a lot of luck too. So, instead, our goal would be to finish the Rally in a good time and leave the rest on God’s sweet will.
Have been busy with preparing the Jimny for the Rally, time is very short because the Car Carrier that will transport Jimny to Hyderabad will leave on Sunday evening.
Saqib, our driver, one mechanic and myself will leave for Mithi from Lahore on the evening of 4th. Inshallah, after driving through the night, will reach Hyderabad around noon or early afternoon. Will than take delivery of Jimny from the Truck Adda and after refueling ourselves and the Defender, will leave for Mithi straight away.
On Defender, approximate travel time from Lahore to Hyderabad is 15 hours and onwards to Mithi is 4.5 hours, would like to reach Rally Village by dusk of 5th.
I know the schedule is very tight and leaves hardly any time for unforeseens, Saqib and I may make minor changes to add a couple of hours on our side. One suggestion is to send the driver by train to Hyderabad on 3rd, so that he collects the Jimny from the Truck Adda and meets us on the road for Mithi.
Will try to keep posted with the latest, hopefully, while on road, DD or Bugzy will be requested to continue with our updates.
