50 seats filled up this morning itself . I've requested, and Ford accepted, to expand capacity by another 20% or so.

Ohh, man, saw this thread late. Do they have plans in other cities like Pune? It will be a nice initiative. Will attend 100% if they put it in Pune or Mumbai.

Fabulous initiative indeed.
I hope there are more sessions scheduled, as this will definitely be a value add for the novice as well as the pros.
I only wish, we could have such sessions organised by the RTO before issueing licences out to people.

@GTO: Could you please verify and let us know if there would be another session scheduled sometime soon? [Not in bangalore that weeekend :(]

+ 1 thats for sure , parking will be a big problem at St. Marks Road.

@ GTO - Is it necessary to bring our own cars as Metro Ford is located on a pretty busy section of the City and parking 50 cars will be problem there. Pls let us know.

From the original post, I figured the practical sessions would be conducted in one's own car but with 50 participants that doesn't look likely! Good luck finding that many parking spots on St Marks Road

Do continue this thread with your experiences once done. Would be great to have something like this in Mumbai/Pune as well!

Good idea, bikes are a better solution . There is enough bike parking availabe at Metro Ford compound.

Does each state get one event? If you could suggest Ford about the venues / cities, I would request you to name one for Kerala bhpians as well. I prefer having one at Cochin or Trivandrum !!
