Twenty days, 11 countries, 8000km. The first India-Asean Car Rally 2004 was flagged
off by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in Guwahati on November 24, 2004. The rally
passed through Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore
before terminating in Indonesia. Not one out of the half-a-dozen participating Scorpios
gave an ounce of trouble despite being driven hard.
