Few weeks back, I was in Jaipur for a Motorsport event by TATA and Thar Motorsports. First day is usually a scrutiny days when all vehicles are certified by experts and some basic guidelines are given to every participant. First day was comparitively boring for me as a photographer and had to spend some time with other things around me. Here is a quick Photo Journey from Hotel Fern, from where all the vehicles were flagged off for Off-road rally around Jaipur City...
Very first photograph of this Photo Journey shows one of the two girls sitting there for receiving all entry forms. This photograph is basically a reflection in mirror-fitted wall, which was not in good state. Fern is a Five Star Hotel, but couldn't understand the state of this huge mirror.
Here is another photograph of same mirror with mild reflection of tea-cups placed for evening break. This was the time, when scrutiny for every vehicle was almost done and now it was time for starting city tour as warm-up session & for primary check of all vehicles.
There are conference planned during evening when some senior Motorsport enthusiasts shared basic rules of this competition called - TIME, SPEED & DISTANCE (TSD). Which means that every vehicle has to cover a particular ditance in specific time by driving on a particular speed. This rally was not about coming first, but more about disciplined drive to fulfill all criteria.
During Conference, some tips were given for first timer. Main tips were around driving on sand. Even all was explained, but still many of the vehicles got stuck in sand dunes on next day.
Name of this event was 'Blaze De Rajasthan' where different kinds of vehicles participated. Stay tuned to see action-filled photographs from this wonderful event by Tata Motors Full Throttle and Thar Motorsports.
