Ooty Great Escape

9th Nov, 2014

Instituted almost two decades ago, the Mahindra Great Escape offers Mahindra owners a chance to go off-roading in controlled circumstances. Great Escapes provide the ideal forum to meet-up with like minded enthusiasts and participants drive through a course identified by Mahindra. Expert recovery teams ensure that every one reaches back to the base for a late lunch. Mahindra Adventure has added a twist to this theme by introducing the Off-Road Trophy class. Those who enter under this category are subjected to some rigorous off-road tests and the four winners get to participate in the grand finals held at the prestigious Off-road academy at Igatpuri, near Nasik, Maharashtra. And yes, the winner drives home in a brand spanking new Mahindra Thar!
