I tried and tried and failed until Sree Sree Kamlesh Patel ji told me the correct technique to employ there.
Could you share some pointers on that please.

That video was awesome. The speeds at which the turns were negotiated were amazing. Any more videos available from the event?

Ahem: 360 was on the straight
How'd you manage a 360 spin on a straight? Were you exiting the last corner or braking for the first one?

No videos or photos (except the ones stored in my memory). I was there IN the car. When I came out, I only hoped my car was either in mint condition or if there was any damage it better be totaled . First we did a 360 on one SIDE (right kerbing) of the track and the momentum carried the car to the other SIDE (left kerbing) of the track where we did another 360. Both times the impact with the kerbs resulted in a 360. All this happened in a matter of 5 secs.

If that move was captured on video, it would have sold for a quite a few bucks or atleast we could have sent it to "World's most Amazing Video's".

It's a slow left, followed by a right uphill. Take a wide line on the left, and the second you exit, step on the gas. Go hot into the right, twitch the steering and dab the brakes. Control the slide with the throttle, and you'll be on the bridge straight.

Do this at your own risk.

A certain politician in the making had promised us an edited version of a drive video. Its been 5 months since & some of us are still waiting. So, I have lost all hopes.

Having missed the only track day to have been held since I started off almost 2 years back I wanted to know what you guys did (in detail) and not be the ONLY one to have posted some pics (barring the teasers) of the events inspite of not attending it. To see if my efforts of getting the track open to general public cars without roll cages bore any fruits or not. But some who had to chance here to witness the event are just too caught up with their daily chores I guess. While jobless people like me keep refreshing this thread to see if there is anything new or post some pics someone else took so that everyone gets an insight to the fun YOU guys had, hoping that more will join in the future events as well.

I've given Bone-oy all the pictures. I think he's busy eating breakfast in Kammanahalli (don't ask why).

Dude, you're extremely busy doing what? Last I saw, you were trying to con a ride to breakfast 20 kilometres from your home, a totally useless effort when you could have been writing out a detailed report for our reading pleasure.

Now just rooster up and do it.
