That would have been one special feeling. Congrats KC for making this country proud.

Yup, was lucky to watch the race today. Pretty brave move from KC (under hard braking from top speed) to get into the lead.

Now this is the kind of aggression one needs, to be a good F1 driver. This lad deserves to have a shot at it...what say?

Great news for all petrol-heads in India ! Hope this & other successes lead to automotive enlightenment in our country, and greater involvement & participation in all things motorsport by the masses. For those interested in the Chandoks, this would make very nice reading...

I expect we will hear the Indian national anthem quite a few times this year in the A1GP series. Narain is looking good there

Motor-sport, & for that matter every other sport, is eclipsed by cricket here in India ! And if it isn't enough torture that every sports channel is always broadcasting some cricket match or another, we're now blessed with a channel dedicated for cricket !?!

Was at the formula Swift, Chevy, series races at the MMSC track this weekend. Attendance was poor, just a smattering of spectators. Saw Leela Krishnan, Vicky Chandok, & Arjun Balu there, with fellow team-bhp-ian Sideways orchestrating the show We desi gear-heads really have to thank such dedicated people for keeping the fires alight, which for all intents & purposes, looks to be a thankless job - sad really. Pathetic that if not for JK-Tyres & TVS, we'd have lost this track...

But boy, you have to hear those engines, with their straight pipes, in the flesh - simply awesome ! Congratulations once again to the Chandoks
