Hi Santosh, please count me in.

Thanks to Ford for organizing this event and to GTO for requesting additional seats for the interested members here.

Looking forward to meeting my fellow members.

Hi,

I attended this a few months ago @ Cauvery Ford and found it worthwhile. While pilots get refresher training every year or so, never did the driver me get any on driving.

Some of the points surfaced in this training were definitely useful for me. In fact I carry the safety manual they gave - in my Fiesta.

The practical bit was really good as well.

Ok, now I shall stop spilling the beans.

Warm regards,
NagaSid

speedmiester: I will be coming from JP Nagar. We can go together. Call me @ 9880048801 and we can coordinate. I am not able to PM you. Is it because I do not have enough posts?

Car pooling sounds cool. Am in G.M.Palya - behind Bagmane Tech Park. I did like to join if anyone is leaving from nearby

Ford's trainers feel that it's better for participants to split them up into two smaller groups. That will greatly help the cause of more focused training.

All confirmed participants will be hearing from Ford shortly, to ask about your slot preference. Here are the 2 tentative ones:

• 1st session: 10.00am - 1.30pm, followed by lunch (10 -12 is theory, 12-1pm is practical, 1-1.30 is lunch)

• 2nd session: 2pm - 5.30pm, followed by high tea (2-4 is theory, 4-5 is practical, 5-5.30 is high tea)

Got a call just now to confirm my participation and also the time slot for the same. I believe due to the "huge response from Team BHP", they have decided to have 2 sessions - one in the morning and the other in the afternoon.

So folks who are planning to car-pool, please check if your partners are on the same session. Car parking options could be explored at Airlines Hotel as well.

The call was from Genesis (or something sounding similar) on behalf of Ford India.

Cheers
Uday
