General Automotive Company (GAC), the official distributors for Mitsubishi in Oman, has successfully completed the first of three trips of its annual desert adventure, the ‘Team Pajero Adventure’. Taking place on December 12 and 13, the two day trip saw over 250 people in 60 Mitsubishi Pajeros drive into desert for a weekend of fun and adventure. Organised by GAC specifically for Pajero owners and enthusiasts, each of these trips gives Pajero owners a taste of a true desert adventure in the vehicle best suited to handle the challenge – the Mitsubishi Pajero. The Team Pajero Desert Adventure is split into three separate groups over three weekends, the first of which was completed last weekend and the next scheduled to be completed over the remaining two. All Mitsubishi Pajero owners in the Sultanate are invited to register for the upcoming trips at the Mitsubishi Showroom in Athaiba.

Commenting on the Desert Adventure, Rajesh Sharma, the National Marketing Manager of General Automotive Company, said: “In addition to being a fun trip for the entire family to enjoy, these annual ‘Team Pajero’ events provides a great opportunity to give owners a real-world driving experience in challenging off-road conditions in a safe and secure environment. This first trip was a great success, with every participant providing us with positive feedback and expressing their intentions to join us once again next year.”

The event, which began at the Mitsubishi Showroom on the morning of December 12, saw 250 Mitsubishi customers and 18 GAC staff members set off towards the desert in 50 Pajeros and 10 Marshall Vehicles respectively, one of which was the fully upgraded Pajero model on display at the recently held Motorshow Oman 2014. All participants followed a predefined course as they headed to Wahiba Sands.

Once at the Al Raha Camp, the convoy of Pajero vehicles were escorted by Marshalls and provided with a specialized desert driving training. 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 were be prepared for the families to enjoy. The following morning, Camel riding sessions and dune bikes were provided for the customers to enjoy at their discretion. The convoy left the camp shortly after.

Reiterating the success of the ‘Pajero Adventure’, a Mitsubishi customer who attended the event, Mr. Kurien George, the Divisional Manager of Al Hajiry International said, “The Pajero Adventure was a great experience with unforgettable moments. It was quite a different experience driving in desert and dune bashing. The evening was also lively and fun. I greatly appreciate the support and assistance we received from the team at GAC they did a great job.”

“With the first trip successfully behind us, we have two more planned for December 19 and 26 respectively. However, the Team Pajero Adventure has welcomed a growing number of Pajero owners with every passing year and most spaces for these trips are already booked. We suggest any Pajero owner wishing to take part in the two upcoming trips to register with us at the earliest,” added Rajesh.

In its latest iteration, the 2015 Mitsubishi Pajero offers a modern look with a revised front grille and an aggressively shaped bumper with integrated LED daytime running lamps. The legendary vehicle is packed with features that make it a pleasure to drive both on the road and off. From the power of its 3.5 or 3.8 litre MIVEC engine through to a comprehensive suite of safety features, the Pajero was designed from the ground-up to cope with any kind of driving condition. Whether highway cruising, urban driving or more challenging off-road adventures in the wadis and dunes of the Sultanate, the Pajero has proved its mettle time and again.

The roomy interior of the Pajero accommodates seven people and is equipped with a manual Dual AC, CD player with 4 speakers, Overhead Console with Sunglass storage, Map Lamp and Trip Computer with an Information Centre. Also available, is Mitsubishi’s Multi Communication System (MMCS) with Voice Command via steering wheel controls, an 850-watt Rockford Acoustic Design 12-Speaker Premium Audio System and electro-chromatic rear-view mirror.
