Mitsubishi Oman Hosts First Team Pajero Event of 2012 in Sharqiya Sands

Over 40 Pajero Owners Experience the Thrill of Dune Driving On a Spectacular Day Out

Mitsubishi Oman has hosted a highly successful Team Pajero event for 40 owners in the Sharqiya Sands – allowing them to experience the thrills of driving one of the world’s best and most loved SUVs across the dunes.

The event was the latest in a series organised by “Team Pajero” for customers to give them the opportunity to experience challenging off-road sand driving conditions in their own vehicles – in a safe and secure environment.

Hosted at the Al Areesh Camp in the Sharqiya Sands, the 40 owners and their families were given a detailed briefing on sand driving techniques before being given the opportunity to test out their newly acquired knowledge.

Pajero owners had the chance to drive over the dunes for three hours and find out just how capable the powerful SUV is in tackling the most demanding desert terrain and conditions. The fun-packed family day also included dinner and entertainment from a traditional Omani band and Bedouin music as the sun set over the dunes.

Commenting on the event, Mitsubishi Oman General Manager Mark Tomlinson said: “We were delighted to have attracted so many of our Pajero owners to our latest ‘Team Pajero’ activity and we were delighted with the hugely positive response that we had to this fun packed and exciting day out.

“For many of our customers it was their first opportunity to drive in sand and we were delighted to give them an introduction to dune driving techniques in a safe and supportive environment.

“I would like to thank our sales team for all their hard work in putting together such a successful day resulting in such an overwhelmingly positive response from everyone who took part.”

In addition to the Mitsubishi Oman sales team they were joined by members of the Middle East team, Mr. Hideo Nakai and Mr. Makito Tanaka who took an active part in the fun dune drives and also gave away a number of surprise gifts to customers.

Customers said they had found the event extremely well organised, great fun for families and a real adventure that some individuals said was the experience of a lifetime for them having the chance to drive in the real desert for the first time.
