Bopaiah K.M wins the 2019 Mahindra Great Escape in Sakleshpur
Mahindra Thar 4X4, the preferred off-roader
The number of participants at Mahindra’s Great Escape off-roading events is witnessing an upward trend with more enthusiasts partaking each year. This year at the Sakleshpur Great Escape, over 80 competitors from Sakleshpur, Bengaluru and other neighbouring areas maneuvered their Mahindra Thar 4X4 SUVs through the challenging trails.
Trail Drive on day one
On day one, Mahindra Adventure officials conducted a non-competitive ‘Trail Drive’ around the mountainous and muddy terrain of Sakleshpur. This was done to make sure that participants are well acquainted with the trail while also giving them an opportunity to strategize for the following day’s obstacles. On day two, competitors edged each other out in a fierce battle in the tough off-roading trails.

At the end of two grueling days of off-roading, Bopaiah K.M emerged victorious in the modified categrory. He’s also the winner of the 2019 Off-roading Trophy that took place at Mahindra Adventure’s Off-road Training Academy in Igatpuri a few weeks back.
