Mitsubishi Organises Team Pajero Adventure

General Automotive Company, the exclusive dealers for Mitsubishi in Oman organised a desert adventure for Pajero owners and enthusiasts, giving them a taste of an Arabian desert, and set forth with the one vehicle designed to handle the challenge - the Mitsubishi Pajero. The Team Pajero adventure ran on February 7 and 8 and on February 21 and 22 with 36 Pajero’s and over 175 participants involved during each event.

Commenting on the event Mark Tomlinson, the General Manager of General Automotive Company, said: "We try to organize events which capture the imagination of our customers as well as allowing them to experience the fantastic abilities of our vehicles. The Pajero has been a constant favorite in the region and in this edition of 'Team Pajero’ we’re really pleased with the positive feedback from our guests. It certainly was an action packed event." "it really was a a top experience for everyone who took part," he added.

Participants in the Team Pajero adventure first gathered at the main Mitsubishi showroom at Azaiba, and once underway, the convoy moved to Wahiba Sands before fully testing their off-roading abilities at the Al Raha Camp in Bidiya.

The "Team Pajero" event was the latest in a series of adventures for customers to give them driving experience in challenging off-road sand conditions - provided in a safe and secure environment. Hosted at the Al Raha Camp, the convoy of 36 Pajero's was escorted by Marshalls and the desert driving training was undertaken in batches of 10 participants. The drivers then proceeded to the Dune bashing session, after which the group was taken atop a dune to watch the sunset.

Pajero owners had the chance to drive over the dunes and find out just how capable the powerful SUV is in tackling the most demanding desert terrain and conditions. The fun-packed family event also included dinner and entertainment from a traditional Omani band, setting the mood of the camp as the sun set over the dunes.

Team Pajero participants noted the professional organisation of the event, while many said it was the experience of a lifetime to drive in the real desert for the first time. All remarked that a great time was had by all, with children getting in on the fun with organised activities.

Sachin Kathrecha, Manager - Retail Design & Delivery at Muscat Grand Mall was a part of the convoy. He said, "I had a fantastic time at the Team Pajero event. This was the first time for desert driving for my family and friends and we were all encouraged by the support and efforts put in by the Mitsubishi Oman team. I would recommend all my friends to participate in this event for the future, and I'm looking forward to dune bashing in our Pajero very soon!"
