From a safety perspective for any drive there should be minimum of 3 cars. So let's wait to see if the required participation is there by Thursday morning and then decide.

@MATHEW FELEX I think by mistake you signed in the Intermediate drive, please sign in the newbie drive.

Also Sri has cancelled that Intermediate drive due to limited participation from Intermediate and above level offroaders.
