Mahindra Quanto Weekend Escape TSD Rally to Nashik



Mahindra Quanto owners recently took a break from their monotonous routine to participate in the M&M ‘Quanto Weekend Escape’. Held between July 13 and 14, 2013, the two-day TSD (Time, Speed, Distance) rally to the Sula Vineyards in Nasik and back saw participation from enthusiastic Quanto owners who enjoyed every bit of the 240km route.

For the participants, the event made for a perfect weekend outing with overcast weather and lush green landscape. The rally was flagged off at 9:30am from Mahindra Towers on July 13, 2013, at Kandivali. Before the convoy reached Sula Vineyards they passed through Wada, Jawahar and Gimare where the drivers encountered perfectly laid highways and B-roads. Of course, the drivers had to navigate some rough patches as well with the magnificent mountains, Kasara Ghats and dams in the backdrop. After a long journey the participants checked in to Beyond Resort at Sula Vineyards for the night, with some exquisite wine and entertainment to ensure a delightful evening.
