Mitsubishi’s First Team Pajero Desert Adventure Concludes on a High Note

General Automotive Company (GAC), official distributors for Mitsubishi in Oman, successfully concluded the first round of their celebrated annual desert excursion, the ‘Team Pajero Desert Adventure’, recently. 

More than 50 customers heeded Mitsubishi’s call to ‘Gear up to move beyond the ordinary’ and registered for the event that promises an experience of a lifetime with teams of like-minded adventure seekers. To accommodate the overwhelming number of Pajero owners, who have a penchant for off-road driving, GAC divided this year’s - ‘Season 17’ - adventure into three trips, with the first trip taking place on December 20th and 21st. The Adventure kick-started with 285 people, in 50 Mitsubishi Pajeros, who drove into the desert for a weekend of fun and team adventure. This will now be followed with two more trips in January (17th and 18th, 2020) and February (7th and 8th, 2020).

Designed to provide Pajero owners and enthusiasts a veritable experience of the desert from close quarters on their trusted Mitsubishi Pajero, the first round of the adventure proved to be a grand success for participants who were wowed by the sheer vibrancy of the desert and the power of their vehicle to drive over plains and dunes. Each of these trips provides Pajero owners and enthusiasts with a taste of Oman’s desert adventure in their most trusted Mitsubishi Pajero.

Commenting on the successful conclusion of the adventure, Manoj Ranade, General Manager of General Automotive Company said, “This is Season 17 of GAC’s most popular desert adventure and we are happy to note that it is growing in size and stature every year. The first of the three trips proved to be a thumping success, with our teams, gearing up to grab their share of desert adventure aboard their favourite Mitsubishi Pajero. Over the years we have seen that these events prove to be a testing ground for Pajero owners who want to sharpen their off-road driving skills. The enthusiasm demonstrated by the participants is what gears us, as organisers, to provide such out-of-the-ordinary experience for our loyal patrons. From our long experience, we have noted that these adventures help enhance the desert driving skills of participants who are guided by experts and later pampered at the well organised Al Raha Camp. However, more than all of this, what motivates us into creating such experiences is the strengthening of our bonds with our customers and the opportunity the event provides to create challenges that are fun and exciting.”

The adventure, which has become an integral part of Pajero ownership in Oman, is expected to set the mood for the season, which beckons adventure seekers to explore the beautiful outdoors of Oman. The current edition of the adventure began at the Mitsubishi Showroom on the morning of December 20th, which were guided by 10 GAC staff marshall vehicles as they headed to the Al Raha Camp at the Wahiba Sands.

Once at the Al Raha Camp, the convoy of Pajero vehicles were escorted by Mitsubishi Oman experts. The drivers were then taken on a dune bashing session, after which the group is taken atop a dune overlooking the camp to witness the stunning sunset. Once back at the camp a large number of activities and entertainment was prepared for the families to enjoy. The following morning, camel riding sessions and dune bikes were provided for the customers to use at their discretion. The convoy left the camp and returned to the Azaiba showroom shortly after.
