Mahindra Great Escape 2018: Sakleshpur

The 2018 edition of the Mahindra Great Escape, Sakleshpur one of India’s most popular off-roading adventures, concluded successfully with over 115 vehicles from the Mahindra stable manoeuvring the challenging track. The event received an overwhelming response from the off-roading communities throughout the country with Mahindra vehicle owners from all over India participating in the rally.

Participants entered the event in Boleros, Scorpios, MM 540s and Thar 4X4s- proving yet again the ruggedness of vehicles from the Mahindra stable. These iconic Mahindra SUVs negotiated the toughest terrain and en route, the convoy of vehicles passed through slushy rain-soaked terrain and streams.

The Mahindra Great Escape under the Mahindra Adventure umbrella brand continues to live up to its promise of encouraging the off-roading culture and demonstrating the tough & rugged DNA of Mahindra vehicles. Initiated last year, the concept of an all-India championship saw fierce competition as the participants got a chance to demonstrate their off-road driving skills through different stages filled with obstacles.

Mahindra invited Shutterdrives to cover the Great escape, Sakleshpur. The event was flagged-off by legendary INRC champion Musa Sheriff.
