There is a GOD to whom I pray everyday, for the health and well-being of TGDC. He watches over us, does not speak, and is very compassionate. If I pray very hard he listens to my prayers; sits in the confession box and pardons us for our little sins.
Yesterday night he came by our blog and ‘posted’ a comment answering one of our prayers. As you are aware the winning team of TGDC is up for a grand prize of Rs. 1M (sorry I mentioned 10M instead of 10L before - now stands corrected), but we wanted to give their fans too an unforgettable experience. So we prayed to God very hard - and he answered.
TGDC fans - please hold your breath for the formal announcement - it appears that those who will be following the winning couple, now stand a chance to make it to the FORMULA 1 SINGTEL SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX. Yes, Yes, Yesss!
I too prayed to my God, I am confident he is listening and guiding me…
Singapore Grand Prix would be perfect gift for the followers and supporters, who eagerly are looking forward to our blogs to come up and are supporting us unconditionally.

What is the prize money? Rs 10M, which is what this post says, or Rs 10L, which is what this page—https://greatdrivingchallenge.com/process—says?
Quite a difference between L and M, you’ll agree.

Grand Prix sounds very interesting for the race die-hard. The question remains “Is TGDC about racing? or fun?”
We thought TGDC was all about the “fun”. So we entered. That is why they have all the rules in place to make sure top 3 drive comfortably following the rules.
Will it be a “PIT GRANDSTAND TICKETS” worth $1288 ?
We are hoping for TGDC to announce more “fun” prizes.
We just hope these prizes would be transferable so at least winners can pass it on to friends who voted and supported them during this journey.
We trust TGDC for their decisions. You guys are good!

Its one million. That is equal to 10L. TGDC always published “...and win a million”
Well, we already won a million adrenaline kicks by now while participating, a million smiles, friends worth much more than just a million, a million reasons to get active with the “fun” in life, a million reasons to make a difference in the world.
Though we lost the chance to win a million Rupees, but we thank TGDC to give us several million things that will make our lives even more beautiful.
After all its the spirit and fun of journey that matters most. Winning stops the journey. Though it has its own benefits. :o)
Good luck everyone!

The grand prize is such a bummer (for the followers), personally speaking! Completely opposite of what TGDC stands for!.
Flying out to singapore to watch a couple of drivers driving at guzzilliion mph, and not enjoying the drive ..
Personally, i feel it’s a bummer! Most would disagree.

Shall I start praying again?
Thanks Ram for those amazing suggestions, and raising the question what TGDC is all about.
I saw an print advertisement about the Cedia Sports today. The copy said: “The father chewed up rivals on dirt tracks”, referring to its EVO 9 rally pedigree.
Harsh, you certainly have a point.
Let’s wait for a couple more days, before I start bothering God again.

The announcement is Exciting !!!!!...........but sorry ....Atheist like me don’t pray !!
Tickets for two to Singapore GP is an awesome gift, Just one clarification, is this applicable for followers from outside India and is it applicable for foreign nationals as well ?
