As a layman and as a non-member of any 4x4 clubs in Pakistan, I would like to heave some light on the misperception of whether it was the first snow rally of Pakistan or not.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
As you mentioned that 4x4 engaged has done it before, yes it might be true and before you, there must be many others who might have done it…BUT who know about it. At least I never knew anything of such a caliber and size. This event was covered by almost all the leading News channels and newspapers and a huge number of masses around the country saw it happened. Adding to the spice Mobilink Jazba and Red Bull couldn’t miss it.<o:p></o:p>
There are different racing and events in 4X4 world. Not every event is counted as rally and as far as I know rally have a different theme and style, I would say this snow cross, rather than confusing it with time and laps. Crossing such a mammoth mountain of snow "only once", it is a biggest achievement. Your event might be more difficult and more hard but this was something which I’ve never seen anywhere in the world. 3.5ft means it was almost a grave’s size and yes it was truly a grave for all the machines that’s why many have backed out after only seeing it.<o:p></o:p>
A big salute to Babar,Asad, Malik sb, Khizar,Ajab, and the white single cabin who jumped into the most daring adventure of their lives. It would be good if we do not compare the two events, because there was a huge difference in the terrain and conditions as I watched both the event’s pics and videos.
I think and its my own perception that other clubs should come up to beat the event's size and the cause it had. or in the next Malam Jabba event clubs should come and have a one by one competition with the existing position holders. <o:p></o:p>
