The scenic hills of Munnar witnessed a convoy of 40 thundering Mahindra SUV's which followed a challenging but exciting route across 60.4 km of tea plantations, hills, waterfalls, lakes, and sandalwood groves. The event was flagged off by P. V Chacko, Munnar Deputy Superintendent of Police. While Goa was comparatively easier due to lack of rain and as a result adequate slush, the Munnar route proved to be much more challenging and arduous. While the 4x4's were really tested to the hilt, the 2-wheel drive vehicles really got bogged down needing a tow regularly. The service team was on stand by at all times ensuring that participants did not get stuck midway and could enjoy the rally unhindered.
Mr. Vivek Nayer, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Automotive Sector, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd said that they were extremely glad to be at Munnar for the third time since it was a much loved venue. Mahindra's 'tough and rugged' DNA was very evident, as new age SUVs such as the Scorpio, Bolero and Getaway, along with icons like the Legend, the Major and the Classic negotiated the demanding route across the rugged landscape of Munnar.
