Hmm. So already 2 Esteems in the fray from Chennai.

BTW, John, I thought your car had some issues. Or did you already get them fixed ?

Anyway, I will have to give this one a miss. Dont know why, but somehow I assumed that the drag is on a Saturday (maybe because the track day was on a Saturday) and planned my trip to Kerala for Saturday evening.

A pity because I was looking forward to this more than the track day. Anyway, whoever goes, please take loads of snaps and videos.

Aditya/john, best of luck. I am sure you guys will put up a good performance.

Go for it, madan. Atleast for the experience. I am sure it would be worth it.

There are no plots here:

1) Lack of time means lesser categories
2) a 1/8 can upset a lot of experienced drivers coz you dont have the distance available to correct any mistakes

I would suggest all those sitting on the fence or thinking go for it. It's a real rush, and on a 1/8th mile, the machine is less of an advantage or handicap than on a 1/4th mile.

Getting it fixed tomorrow, but i dont think that should be a problem either. it is only on high speeds that the secondary opens. (Not sure though). I am not 100% confirmed about the participation either.

What are the chances of the Skyline GTR coming to the track, atleast to be parked in the pits ? Any info will be greatly appreciated.

If it does come, it will justify me travelling 300kms to watch a 1/8th mile event.
