lolzz Yasir i thought some buddy else was chasing the concordia i simply love the way ones body moves on dirt tracks and the movement of seats one can see the stresse seats ,& next time put some wide angle lens bring the cam little bit forward ,by the way what was hitting the roll cage "a typical folady tung" and what was your speed , it was great to see your face in cam
This was the bumpiest/slowest part of the whole track... this was shot in wide angle. I think it wouldve been better with a narrow angle considering the mounting position on the roll cage. Too much contrast between the interior of the vehicle and the outside, hence poor outside visibility. Also our recce notes lying on the dashboard didnt help either :)... agree that the camera needs to be mounted slightly forward... bal zal la ba goru...
The metal "tung" on the roll cage is the loose original seatbelt buckle... i was too lazy to tape it to the interior trim... reminiscent of a church bell tolling :P.... The end is nigh!!!
Ghangla for President!
This was the first turn on the qualifying, thoughtfully captured by Mr M.I.G. Essentially the whole track was marked by similar tire ruts of various depth and width. The natural driving style was to keep the tires within the defined track and it seemed to be easy handling though my sense was that there was a lot of drag in the hard powdered sand. Generally, the rally this year was not really a power (BHP) play but torque did come in handy....
FJ Concordia yawning through at the first qualification turn. Many Thanks once again to Muhammad Iqbal Ghangla for the wonderful camera work.
I would like to ask about the roll over.Did you enter the corner at more speed and vehicle rolled over Or you were not expecting a hard turn and it suddenly popped up.
Asking this as if I participate in some rally my biggest fear is a roll over at a hard turn which I am not anticipating.
Note matching Driver / Navigator expressions!
Rashid Abdullah, his Co-Driver Imran and mechanic Irfan arrived late Wednesday evening
Thursday evening, it was time to prepare for Qualifying
Congrats on a solid consistent finish to Adnan, the only other racer from the Northern part of the country. Its a very competitive category and all the racers above him are veterans with more investment in their cars. More power to him for 2014!
My two tireless, loyal and jack of all trade associates Nawab and Majeed. In addition to being good drivers, they are part time cooks and part time mechanics. Day or night, rain or shine, whatever task,,, they are there
