Khaadu's done pretty well - he's got times of 104.xxx and 107.xxx in the zen and palio respectively which puts him somewhere near the top of the board.(He was even faster than a black rally baleno !)
Fastest time till now was a 101.xx in a zen IIRC

I had a dismal day - Spun out on the long right hander both times and posted some pretty miserable times - im definitely not qualifying.
It seems that I went in a bit too fast and on braking, my rear end just lost the plot. - spun 90 degrees once and once plowed straight into the buntings.

:( ... i should have realised that while coming in too fast was never an issue in my carb esteem , in the baleno it definitely is. The whole race I had a hard time trying to keep it straight and not lost it - sadly it happened twice and i lost 5-10 secionds both time - got times of 121 and 131 seconds....

Arush was there in his neato GTO - not taking part of course - but would have been fun to see it.


There was a dune buggy which looked and sounded the part but it just stalled halfway and then plodded on behind a rally gypsy.
There was also one brave soul who wa sthere in an Omni ! Hats off to him !

best of luck Khaadu !

zaphod out..... will be back next year with some sense drilled into my brain aboyut how to drive in the mud.

Hey, After I spoke with you I checked back at the venue and I had slipped to 5th ... but that will hold !! Anyways from tom onwards its a knock out stage so timings wudnt matter at all ... Had a good clean run in the zen with out pushiung too hard so Im sure I can shave of a few more seconds of todays timings ....

MESSED UP in the open category with the Palio .... the track had just been watered and i went out on normal tyres and sure enough teh rear kept going out -- clocked 1.07.xx secs , but dont think ill manage in the top 16 !! Also the Palios engine has smoked out so even if i did make it thru I wudnt have managed running too well .... BUT IT WAS FUN !!!

Lets see how tom goes ....

Cheers

Aza @ Thanx for the timing sheets .. but Im feeling so BAD that I messed up in the OPEN Category !! I shud have waited a bit longer to get out on the track .... I so badly want to drive the Palio again on teh track as I know I can shave of a few seconds very easily and be around the 1 mark ... and I wont have this car till the next event

Anyways see you guys in the mroning ... Racing starts at 8 so be there !! Hope to atleast get thru the next round .... and most probably it will be 2 laps from now on, so more chances of making mistakes .

Cheers

PS -- Thanx .. but I wanna make it to the last 4 atleast -- that will be good specially when Im the only one with a complete stock zen in the top 10 zens . You saw how well modded the others were !!!
