flipsyde - You can come to the track and then decide.

hrishi - I would love to see your safari around the track.

Remember to say "Jai Gurudev" before you take it on track.

Gurudev is the Skoda dealer in Chennai

I guess this will work well. try it out.

I'm sure you can do better - I think the RS is cramping your natural style.

OK here's a question: If the Skoda does the track in x seconds, how much time do you think the Safari will take? 2x / 3x / 4x?

Time to find my old helmet with the "CROWER RACING CAMS" sticker

OK, you do the track in reverse gear and I'll do it using the 5 forward gears. Fair contest?

That's pedestrian. My old Silver Plus will do better.

Guys, just a suggestion -- how about leaving on Saturday morning if some of us are free? Stay near the track Saturday night, since that will give us an extra session -- Saturday post lunch -- at the cost of a night's stay extra. It would make sense to extend our track time since we're driving all the way.

souns like a good idea , but too soon for me to confirm on that , but are there any "ok" places close by to the track for us to stay?

Yes, there are 2. One is Pleasant Days, a nice resort about 15 minutes from the track. The other is a newer place, about 5 minutes from the track. For details on the latter, we will have to wait for Nitrous.

Would have loved to dude but wont be able to. I've shifted to Pune now, so trackday's are almost non-existent till I return to Blore or Chennai for good.

Gonna miss the track and meeting you folks, but will make up for it sometime.

Have fun guys. Drive safe and post a nice report with lotsa pics and maybe some videos too.
