First Mahindra Great Escape Staged In South Africa

The first Mahindra Great Escape off-road driving experience took place in Polokwane on July 27. This proven formula has seen more than 100 Great Escape adventures take place in India since its inception in 1996 and the concept has subsequently been rolled out in several other countries where Mahindra vehicles are sold, but this is the first time it has been organised in Africa.

“We are very pleased that this initiative has now spread to South Africa, driven in this case by the enthusiasm of the team at Mahindra McCarthy Polokwane,” said Ashok Thakur, the delighted Mahindra SA CEO, who took part in the inaugural event along with several members of his executive team.

“The idea of a non-competitive off-road adventure open to all owners of four-wheel drive vehicles organised by Mahindra is proving a winner. We believe the theme of Great Escapes will spread throughout South Africa, as this is an ideal country for enjoying the outdoors in a capable 4x4 vehicle.” added Thakur.

The Great Escape in Polokwane was linked to the founding of the McCarthy Eco 4x4 Club, with well known and experienced eco guide and 4x4 driving instructor Arrie Horn putting the event together. The family-focused event consisted of a theoretical session, followed by practical exercises and the awarding of certificates of competency for those who achieved the required standards.

Fifteen participants joined the club on the day and many more have committed to joining its ranks in the future.

The club’s next Great Escape will be a day trip from Polokwane to the Olifants River on August 24, where the participants can put their skills to the test on a true adventure drive. Future activities include weekend getaways and an annual weeklong Great Escape.
