The best time done by the Group N esteems during the MMTCC was 1:22.3 while the Star Cup esteems did a 1:27:3. And I think the video is with Rayna driving the car and boogle (I mean blue) boy sitting shotgun. That must have been one quick lap.

about going anti-clock wise - a point that one might want to keep in mind is a. we are predominantly right handed -so our right hand is stronger so it is easier to take a right turn than a left one. Also. b. since our cars are RHDs judgment in a right corner is easier than a left one.
from what is saw of the track (KMS and MMST) they have predominantly right turns, the left ones are very small or not hard (except the second last corner before the bridge (mmst), and we have a lot of tail spins there).

Madan, that would solely depend from person to person. I personally prefer left handers to right handers.

Suspension not properly set up. Tyres at the end of their lifespan. And this car weighs 1040 kgs, excluding driver, I'm told. Times will get better.

At one point in the video, though the face of the driver is not visible I could see a golden bangle (like) worn on the left hand . So thought it must have been Rayna. Here....



Btw what esteem is this? Group N?

You mean 1.97? 1G is normal gravity. 0G is floating in space

But that 1G is never taken into consideration as it is alwasy present. So almost G meters will show in decimal points.
