First Off.... Awesome pics Tifosi. I love the shot of the black R1 (or is it the R6?) leading the other 2 SBK's. Thats my current wallpaper.

What shutter speed did u use to click that pic?

Nice to see SB on track. Finally bit the bullet huh?

Glad that all of you had so much fun. I wish i was there.

P.S. Madan80, wot happened to ur car? Looks like quite a nasty dent on the LHS rear.

Keep the pics and vid's coming guys.

Yeah, thought at the last moment that I will give it a try. Was a good experience, inspite of the rubber shaved off from my Bridgestones.

Here come the pics :

1) Enroute to the track - truck piled with sacks of onion, with humans piled on top of the sacks. Man, it was scary just seeing them perched up there.



2. The Suzuki-GSX. As always, awesome bikes. Drool...



3. John with his 2 lovely kids (future tbhp-ians, I am sure).



4. A lovely looking Mondeo - did not get on track though. It belonged to one of the bikers, I guess.



5. A biker in action.



6. That guy, headers sure has guts. See the tyres he was running on his Zen (soon to be E-Zen). Ofcourse, you should have seen the car as a whole. Does anyone have a pic of it ? How come I missed snapping a pic ?


7. The Chennai guys (not all of them though)
From right : Sharan, slipstream, 16v100hp, manek (red T), and 2 of 16v100hp's friends behind manek (sorry guys, i am not good at names).



8. The 2 cars with the sexiest rear, among all the cars that came to track.



9. Some of the Bangy guys :
From left : TheMag, ?? (sorry again, forgot the name, though i remember your car), mclaren1885, ?? (sorry again).



10. Now that was one sweet sounding car.

The rest of the pics :

11. The sweet swift from Bangy.



12. If vikram had not returned to the pit, we would have had some spectacular action between the Swift and this car which got on track to our surprise.



13. A group photo, though some of the guys had already left. Its a pity, the guy did not zoom in. Anyway here goes, the names I can remember. Someone fill out the rest.

Sitting R to L : slipstream, SB, manek, sharan

Standing R to L : 16v100hp, TheMag, ??, mclaren, Vikram, ??

The mondeo belongs to Sawan Gupta - BikerSG (i think) and those are 17 inch OZ rims strapped with 225 profile tires.

Headers, when did u pick up a zen? U actually drove it on track with the tires in that state? thats madness.

BTW Nice pics, keep 'em coming.

I am not sure, but the Mondeo looked like either Sawan's or Sandy's. Though it was neither of them driving it.

If you think that's madness, I am not sure what you would say on seeing the Zen's windshield.

I think he had picked the zen up only a few days ago and did not have the time to spruce it up. I am sure we will see her in great shape at the next track day, possibly with an Esteem engine inside.

Anyway, inspite of the fun I had, I don't think I will be getting on track again with my car. It is not really fun to not be able to push her like she should be, because you are thinking about the damage to the tyres, suspension etc, apart from any other serious damage that could happen due to getting off the tarmac or a collision (God Forbid). I love her too much to subject her to such torture.

I would rather rent a FISSME or track Esteem and enjoy the track.
