Default How many takers for the next track day ??

Its been a really long time since we have had a track day with good numbers .. Yes a few of us including ajmat , psycho , tadukutton , memo , jay , v1p3r , myself do visit the track atleast once in two months or so .. This time we are hoping to have more participation from the members here .. So all those interested pls vote up so that we can get to implementation asap .. For all those who are new to this , pls do a search on track days or read the following threads ..

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/motor-...t-pics-17.html

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/team-b...r-track-3.html (Bangy boys on Sriperambadur track)


Based on voting basis , the track day will be held at either chennai or coimbatore during the month of feb/march over the course of a weekend .. Track days are about honing ones driving skills and not RACE against each other .. Every car from a maruti 800 to a bugatti veyron could be driven on track provided they are driven well within the limits or sanely enough.. All those who havent been on track will be given a crash course by a few local experts on track itself .. Its an oppurtunity to get to know ur driving skills and the handling of ur car better .. So roll the votes out .. Any doubts/suggestions can be put up for discussion ..

Farhan , sawan if ur reading this kindly come up with the dates soon its been a long long wait .. Rates will be furnished based on numbers .. Its the cheapest way to get urself on track and find yourselves in shoes of ur racing heroes..

Would love to join. There are lot of other factors though...

For now I have selected both options. Driving down to coimbatore could be a pain.

Yippppppeeeeeeeee....

I'm in for sure as long as Kuppi is giving out those awesome JK's on rent...

And we need to get the dates finalised soon before Chennai turns into a furnace...


P.S. Farhan/Sawan, could we please have the tires this time 'round too? many of us would greatly benefit from it...

Request taken into consideration , shall work out the dates accordingly .. Also the event would have to be certainly after the bombay speedrun which is on the 17 and 18th of feb .. Shall speak to the track authorities and find out the dates the track is free on ..

Well Mr. Haathi to be honest , u dont have to follow the racing lines or the kind .. All you have to do is drive in a straight line across the kerbs , bushes , onto the grass , run over ur enemies and more importantly protect shipwreck whod have run off the racing line for about a million feet and would be about to take off into the 20ft drainage system to break his toe yet again and get to the finish line in FIRST PLACE or just stay ahead of C3PO and make sure he doesnt drift any of our cars .. But id bet on bringing khaders bhais dicor instead (for all you know our in house transporter could make it come true) ..

To be honest , suggest you to get the baleno or still better the 5 times body wrecked accent viva and complete the double hatrick ??

The last time we went to track a Scorpio testing JK.Tyres flipped over at the trecherous C1 with neither the driver , passenger or any of the rear seated dumbos wearing seatbelts .. To their grace , they all came out alive .. Such monsters arent meant for track (u can prove me wrong) , oh well if my memory serves me right a cayenne just did that at the 3rd track day .. So its your call ..

Well C3PO's car ran two track days with a set of tyres and he still was running on the same tyres until a few months back .. If you drive properly there is not much damage u could do .. Its just when one tends to cross the limits the problems arise .. That said most of us drove our cars on track in stock form .. Ask v1p3r , ajmat , wolf , anush , psycho .. Its not about having a stock car or modded , its purely the fun factor ..

Yup mandatory specially when one is testing a new compound tyre .. But only almighty knows what they were thinking ..

Those guys were from Mahindra, not JK. They were testing the Scorpio's 'new' suspension 'redone' by Lotus. Bah.
