That is exactly why we are all not leaving together. Moreover waking up at 5:00 on a sunday morning is absolutely impossible for me and a few others I know. That is why we guys will leave from here by 7:30 - 8:00 am.

Rahul,
Exactly hence the reason of no compulsion to meet and go together.
If one thinks he is getting late please carry on if he wants to wait for his friends etc. please stay and wait.
That way each individual is free to do what he pleases.

Does one have to confirm here beforehand or can one just turn up at the track at the designated time? Keeping in mind the prerequisites.

One can turn up at any time Hrishi. Specially in case of a P&P.

Can we do a P&P on any day when the track is free ? Say 4th April Saturday, if I was in Chennai can I go straight to the track and put some laps.

Default Couple of questions

Guys,

Not really relevant but I guess its still good to know.

1. Will we be the only people (20 in all as of now,as per the list) on the track from (13:30 - 18:00) ? (will anyone else who wishes to pay can enter too ?)
2. For a P&P to happen how many cars/people are required (Minimum) ?

Why not place the camera between the top of the seat and the neck restraint? You can hit the record button and push the neck restraint down as far as it can go. Better still strap the cam to the neck restraint.

I guess this will work well. try it out.

I have a mini tripod with me, you could mount the camera onto the Tripod which can be swivelled to face the track. The tripod legs could be tied to the neck restraint, am sure it would stay there the whole day and night if its tied up and you would have only the shakes from the car movement and nothing else.

Not sure if I would come down, depends on approval from "Central Governement Home Minister", if I can't make it I can get it handed over to nitrous or mission_safari or any one closer to Royapettah where my office is.

Thanks Vikram_d sir

1. Ok, meaning we "might" have more than 20 cars on the track at a time.
2. At any given day, if the track is free anyone can go for a P&P ? (Whom/where/when to get in touch for this ?)

They have dedicated P&P days. Only on those days you can go and drive/ride around the track. Other days even if the track is free, I don't think they will allow you.

I will be coming to the track with my Corolla. Just a little concerned about taking it around the track.

Can I decide whether I wanna have a go at the venue? Or should I give my confirmation now? I have never been around the track and riding one lap shotgun with the pro's may help me decide.
