We love watching circuitous chases through tropical forest tracts, a la Indiana Jones series reruns on the tube.
It's thrilling, makes for good laughs and the best part -- you're on the cleaner side of the screen. But, occasionally, as we discovered, it isn't such a bad idea to get down and dirty. A bunch of auto-crazed men have planned a similar-themed adventure -- Moto Sport India's Endurance 4-wheel Drive 2011 at Manor, 100 kms from Mumbai. If you're a closet extreme sports enthusiast, like yours truly, show up to cheer 44 teams along while they engage in mud wrestling of a different kind, across two km of dirt track. "Off-roading is popular these days, so we decided to plan this fun weekend trail," says organiser Sajid Faqih. Bond with fellow off-roaders over BBQ and a campfire. The history buff might want to note -- a few of these big boys date back to World War I and II!
