Training Grounds

Can anyone go and offroad at your training grounds?


No. The training grounds are solely for training and are not recreational offroad grounds where anyone can enter and offroad. From time to time we do open up for open track days but that is a ticketed event with prior intimation and supervision.




Can 2WD SUVs perform on your property?


At the current state, the 2WD cars can only go on the main trail and that too in the dry season only. We are looking at possibly adding a 2WD track in the future.




Do you offer vehicle insurance for offroad?


No. Currently we do not offer any kind of vehicle or personal insurance and the course is entirely at your own risk. You need to sign an indemnity and release form before the course.




Can we rent a vehicle from you?


Not at the moment but we are looking to give such facilities in the near future. The main reason for not renting out vehicles is that we prefer that you learn on your own vehicle and the one that you would be offroading with. Every vehicle has different dimensions and angles and different driving styles. You need to get used to driving with your own type of vehicle to understand it's nuances.




Can i bring a friend along for the on-field training days?


Yes, you may bring along someone else for the field day, but your friend would have to pay for the field training class. However, your friend would not be eligible for taking examinations.




What are the vehicle criteria for training / open track days?


Your vehicle must have a working 4WD and must be road worthy with adequate life left in the tyres. Seat belts must be working and be there for all passengers. For vehicles without a B pillar, a minimum roll over bar must be present. For the wet season, minimum AT or MT tyres required. NO HT tyres.




Mobile / Internet Connectivity


Mobile and 4G connectivity is patchy at best and avaialble usually only on the main back bone trail. Reliance Jio works the best followed by Vodafore and Airtel.




What kind of food is served?


During the courses we usually have a working lunch. Either we carry packed lunch or go to a nearby dhaba for food. Tea/coffee is on the trail.




What are the restroom facilities at the ground?


There are no restrooms at the property. However, there is access to clean restrooms 3kms before the property and we advice you to visit that before you head up towards the ground.





Accommodation

What are the accommodation options nearby?


There are 6 fantastic container homes around 3kms from the training grounds and these are charged at Rs. 1500 per person on a twin share and include basic breakfast only.
