Jeep Club of Sri Lanka (JCSL) concluded its annual expedition recently for the fifth consecu-tive year.
Diesel & Motor Engineering (DIMO) was the main sponsor of the event. The theme for this year’s expedition was ‘Route to our Roots,’ resonating with the area of Mahiyanganaya.
The members of the Jeep Club of Sri Lanka participated along-side their family members and children.
The experience and the drive also reassured members that they have chosen the best off-road vehicle, which is a go-anywhere and do-anything vehicle.
The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Jeep Cherokee stood out as the vehicles that took part in the journey.
Rajeev Pandithage, General Manager (Mercedes-Benz, Jeep and Chrysler Sales and After Sales Service), DIMO said, “It was indeed a privilege to spon-sor such a memorable expedi-tion. The event proved an ideal opportunity for participants to catch a glimpse of jeep vehicles in action and experience their true capabilities and versatility. We look forward to facilitate similar activities for our jeep members in the near future.”
The voyage kicked off from DIMO 800 and travelled to Riverston, Matale, on the first day. The second day itinerary included a visit to the ‘Dabana’ Museum, also known as a Vedda Village. The second day also included an entire run in the Maduru Oya National Park.
As a part of their social responsibility activity, JCSL also came forward to provide mon-etary assistance for future development initiatives of the park.
The third day of the adven-tures commenced with a dedi-cated trail at the ‘Kamatha Eco Lodge’ where all jeepers could test the capabilities of their jeeps to the fullest.
It stood out as a very detailed and technical drive, where everyone could push the jeeps to their best performance and extents of the 4WD aspects.
The ‘Route to our Roots’ was another jeep event organized to challenge the off-road enthu-siast as well as serve as an edu-cational experience on the roots of the motherland.
