The Malabar Rampage is just about to get underway, and there are still a couple of precious team slots open for the rally that will go down in adventuring history. These final few positions have come around due to teams unfortunately not being able to make it, and the organisers are sending out a last minute worldwide alert for those rare, hardy souls who want to drop whatever they’re doing and take off on the experience of a lifetime with One hundred (100!) litres of free gas!
One hundred (100!) litres of free gas
The Malabar Rampage organisers had considered just picking up the adventuring world by the ankles and shaking it until a few crazy individuals shook loose and could be swept up into the world of the Rickshaw Challenge series. However, they know the old phrase, you catch more flies with honey. Of course, they don’t want flies; they want crazy adventurers – so naturally, rather than honey, they’re using lots and lots of gasoline. Any last minute explorers who join up between right now and that green flag unleashing the rally will get One hundred (100!) litres of free gas for the rally from the organisers. Considering the fuel efficiency of the noble tricicular tuk-tuk, that is an awful lot of miles of unparalleled adventure right through the majesty and the mystery of the Dravidian states. About 2,140 miles, to be exact.
The requirements for joining the Malabar Rampage, even now at the last minute, are few – at least in terms of preparation or cost. However, teams will have to mentally prepare themselves on short notice for some of the most mind blowing antics that have ever been seen on a highway anywhere in the world. In a convoy of outrageously tricked-out autorickshaws, the participants will experience cities, jungles, temples, coastlines and cultures in a way inconceivable to the average (sane) tourist. This is a world premiere – the first time the notorious Rickshaw Challenge series has explored Southern India’s Dravidian states, and the madcap challenges, the cultural exploration, and the humanitarian mission at the heart of the rally are all bound to pass into international adventurer lore. This is the last chance for prospective teams to seize their chance, to banish any last minute butterflies, and become part of something amazing in a rally like no other that will also help the underprivileged schools of rural India. To date, the Rickshaw Challenge series has raised just shy of $50,000 for this extremely worthwhile cause, and anyone in this year’s Malabar Rampage will be part of breaking and exceeding this milestone figure.
