Hi folks,

I'm in Madurai at the mo. Left the day after the autocross for bombay to spend christmas and new years with my wife.

Damn, I thought I'd done pretty well in my esteem in 02,03 and 04 but the way I drove the baleno was bad...

I stood on the brakes, never used teh throttle to steer and most of all , entered the turns too fast and then overcorrected , spinning around.... sheesh.... should have realised that the baleno was a different beast as compared to my old faithful esteem.... there going too fast was never an issue ! In short I made every mistake I could have....

Even on my second run, I though I'd take care of the slow right hander where I picked up speed and lost the rear end but like an idiot I went in too fast , plowed through the buntings and spun around..... 10 seconds slower than my first run which was bad enough at 121.

Will be back next year after having driven the baleno a bit - at least taking it above 4k revvs ....

Right now I'm trying to settle in Madurai, waiting for the car - yes - back to buses for the next week but will then have the Palio Adventure to drive - 150Kms a day !.... New tyres and a CD player and I should be happy.

It was nice meeting Hellspawn, aZa, Khaadu and Arush.... I guess I've become known as the serial ditcher of Team-BHP ....

Now I'll just stay here , work my fat *** off and then come bak and hopefully take part in Desert Storm in the NAV category.

cheers folks

see you when I get back to dilli - its hot here and Im really missing the winter.

Zaphod, How I wud have luvd to do it in a baleno ... thats the most fun car out there on a track like that -- and there was no need of using ur brakes anywhere , all u needed to do was left foot braking , slide in and power out ;-) !!!

Next year maybe !!!

hellspawn, yup - sure enjoyed meeting up - will definitely make it for whatever meet is happening when I get back to delhi.

I'd have loved to take part in the open category in the Adventure but the tyres were finito - dead infact.

The car's now on it's way here to Madurai as we needed a vehicle and buying a new one was not on the cards.

Khaadu - you did really well in your zen - your run teh first day was near flawless.
I guess when I meet up with you I'll take some tips from you about driving the baleno in the autocross- - I started off quite a bit nervous this time as I hadn't taken part for three years and being a (almost)new car which I haven't really pushed to the limits I wasn't too confident ... which resulted in the mad 'I'm going too fast-I'll brake hard' idiocy on my part. I never tried left foot braking as I was too afraid of losing control (which I did anyway). I couldn't really try powering out of the corners as I'd lost all grip by then and the rear end wanted to come all the way around. When I went straight into the buntings, I thought I'd lost my steering but it was just the front wheels losing it. turning them just didn't help. Some tips would be really appreciated.

but still I had a lot of fun driving around.... the raw thrill of being bounced around wasn't there this time - smoother track or was it teh light esteem which gave that feeling ? - had a great time anyway...

be back next year and by god, I'll qualify - done it once , will do it again.
