I scored 79. Lets wait for the results of round 1.

Personally i didn't like the simulator test. It was just too unreal.
No feedback. No real life scenario. The stupid car used to stall like no ones business.
We drive far far better in a real car than in this simulator. Its good only for new learners.

Lets see. Though not too much of enthu this time.

Surprisingly, it took all of 5 mins for me to get an e-mail notification for activating my account. Now that its done, time for taking the on-line test.

Post Young Driver 2010

The Autocar Young Driver contest for 2010 is out. check out the website - Maruti Suzuki : Autocar Young Driver 2010 Contest to register. I guess this time they are adding another level of screening - wherein at the 2nd roudn there will be a driving test along with a simulation round.


The contest is a 3 phase contest - phase 1 is online - theory
phase 2 is a simulation with theory and now a practical driving and parking test and
phase 3 will be held at Maruti suzukis IDRT at Delhi.

Its open to anyone below 30 years. IIRC the last date for phase 1 is 25th feb. So good luck.

Last year the competition was tough- considering it was the first time such an event was held, must commend ACI on a concept brilliantly put together and executed.

Looks like this year is going to be as exciting.
