What is this all about? Could you share some details? And also on how does the qualification works? Tks.
PS - the thread title says "diver" & the message says "driver"

Congrats Karan Good luck at the finals

Any more BHPians on board?

aargee, the list is published in the link, it doesn't have any thing saying how and what were the criteria for selecting the top 30.
http://www.youngdriver.in/

I remember seeing somwhere that the scores of the 2 test will be considered and also the time taken for the quiz(Rd 1).
Quote:
Shortlisting will be done based on
  • Skill Test Score
  • Physical parking test
This is what is said in the rules

So, 3BHPians out of 30 finalists. I must say a healthy 10% ratio. Best wishes to Karan, Greasemonk and captainsokhi for the finals.

The results are going to be published in the next issue (May 10).The event was great fun made some great friends. Met two team bhp members greasemonk and captainsokhi.

Now getting back to the event. We reached Delhi and we checked into the hotel and left for the IDTR. There was initial round of speeches. Followed by the drawing of chits( which would give us the order in which me would take test). The course basically comprised of the following:
1. Slalom section.
2. H section
3. Reverse S-bend
4. Forward S-bend
5. Parallel park
6. Perpendicular Parking
and some more stuff.
All and all it was easy stuff. But the problem all of us team bhp guys is all we think is SPEED!!

PS: ashwin if you read this change ur handle to captain glenmorangie . lol :-)
