I know its a bit early to ask, but i can't take it anymore. I'm literally kicking myself for not being able to make it this time. And to think that i'l be in Blore with the VTEC on the 9th of this month!!

Anyway, i just wanted to know if there is a possiblity of having another P'n'P session like this, some time in Aug or even Sept-Oct?

nope - this will not be considered as organized racing. For organized racing you need clearance from the necessary authorities and FMSCI / MAI authorization.

In the event of an incident, the insurance is also void (this is what i have been told)

Race insurance is only 3rd party. If you crash into a spectator, their medical costs will be covered, or if you break property, the insurance co is liable for damages.

Actually we could have invited the white Supra. If everything goes well we could have some nice fast cars including a couple of imports. Fingers crossed.

Buy them from Bangalore, you get some really good ones from there, got all my equipment from Cramster.
If you want to make it to the track day i suggest you start a day earlier, there are some decent lodges next to the track. Anyways i will not be able to make it, something just came up.

Went out for a while. And, Its HOT by chennai standards.
Guys, get a lot of drinking water along to avoid having muscular cramps while driving. The track dehydrates one like crazy.
